Tomorrowworld “Will Not Take Place” In 2016

The SFX-owned TomorrowWorld has announced that it will not be coming back in 2016, ending months of speculation about the festival’s future.

 

“It’s with a heavy heart that we inform you TomorrowWorld will not take place in 2016,” organisers told fans overnight. “Unfortunately in the current environment, it is not possible to give you the best and unique experience you deserve.”

 

TomorrowWorld first ran into trouble in 2015, when wild weather kept shuttle buses and taxis from reaching the festival’s pick-up sites, stranding punters in less-than-ideal conditions. Rain and mud forced organisers to shut down the third day of the festival for everyone not already camping on site, with refunds offered to those affected by the transport issues.

 

When TomorrowWorld’s parent company SFX filed for a Chapter 11 bankruptcy last month, a spokesperson revealed that no concrete plans had been made to bring the festival back.

 

TomorrowWorld first launched in 2013 in Chattahoochee Hills, Georgia, as a US spin-off of the popular Belgian festival Tomorrowland. Both the flagship Tomorrowland festival in Boom and the Brazilian offshoot in São Paulo will go ahead as planned this year.
