Tomorrowland Around The World revealed a behind-the-scenes documentary which shows how the first virtual festival experience came to be.   

Never stop the music – The Creation of Tomorrowland Around the World is an 18-minute short film showing how a combination of four separate studios, 38 digital cameras, and over 300 terabytes of raw footage was pieced together to create the festival’s online Island of Pāpiliōnem.  The virtual live stream’s graphics were rendered at an ultra high quality equating to ten times more 3D graphics than the average video game.

Tomorrowland Around The World garnered one million paid subscribers for the global live stream event which took place on July 26 and July 27 of this year.  A number which is nearly two-and-a-half times more people than what is typically attended at the in-person event.

The two-day virtual festival featured performances by Katy Perry, Adam Beyer, Amelie Lens, Armin van Buuren, Charlotte de Witte, David Guetta, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Fedde Le Grand, Kölsch, Lost Frequencies, Martin Garrix, Paul Kalkbrenner, Steve Aoki, Tale of Us, Tiësto, Timmy Trumpet and more across eight custom-designed stages.

“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.”
