For us, it’s a bit re-inventing the festival experience, but we truly believe that we can bring the spirit of Tomorrowland and entertainment at the highest level to people and homes around the globe.” Usually, when they have the concert they sell out within minutes with millions of people trying to buy tickets every year.
