Tomorrowland along with EDC Las Vegas and Ultra Miami were among the many great EDM festivals canceled / postponed this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

After the news that Eric Prydz will perform and bring his show HOLOSPHERE to ] Tomorrowland in 2021, there is more news about the possibility that Tomorrowland will be held 3 weekends, instead of 2, which has been the case for the last few years.
Currently , Tomorrowland is directing all its efforts towards its digital festival that was announced last week, which will take place on the last weekend of July, as this year's edition is postponed due to the pandemic of Coronavirus .
According to the inf Ordered by GVA a Belgian news website, ATV learned that the organizers are considering adding a third weekend to Tomorrowland 2021.
