On July 28 it was reported that the virtual festival Tomorrowland Around the World earned 1 million subscribers, 150% more with its pay-per-view edition.
Over the course of the past weekend, more than one million people paid to watch the virtual festival which was two-and-a-half times more than what the in-person festival typically draws.
The two day event, which featured performances by: Katy Perry, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, David Guetta, Martin Garrix and more, saw its performances across eight custom-designed stages on the island of Pāpiliōnem.
Weekend tickets for the event cost €20, with day tickets priced at €12.50. Those who bought a weekend ticket can also watch all of the performances again until Wednesday July 29.
For anyone who would still like to check-out the festival, separate €12.50 tickets are available to buy on the Tomorrowland website. This access will allow fans to watch all the recorded sets until Wednesday August 12, 5 p.m. CET (11 a.m. EST).
“Our message has been sent into the furthest corners of the world. It will travel around the globe until the time comes when we can unite once again. For now, we leave this beautiful place we call Pāpiliōnem and treasure what we have experienced together.”– Tomorrowland team
The virtual live stream, which was created for Tomorrowland Around the World rendered the virtual graphics at an ultra high quality equating to ten times more 3D graphics than the average video game.
The in-person edition of Tomorrowland along with other in-person festivals were called off in April due to restrictions from the government from COVID-19 concerns.
Typically welcoming over 400,000 attendees over two weekends in Boom, Belgium, the festival consistently features performances over multiple stages built especially for the event with magnanimous production elements and the best electronic music acts in the world.
