Tomorrowland announces fantasy fiction series
The Belgian festival giant's fantastical themes will get the novel treatment in an upcoming trilogy
Tomorrowland is expanding on the fantastical themes of its festivals in a series of novels, currently in development.
The Belgian festival giant is partnering with literary agency Janklow & Nesbit and United Talent Agency for book-to-screen options for the fantasy fiction trilogy, announced on 22nd June.
According to agent Paul Lucas, Tomorrowland "has managed to successfully knit that unique magic together with their core values of unity, hope, love, nature and health in an enchanting first novel of a trilogy."
“Every year Tomorrowland presents a new festival theme, which comes to life via a beautiful trailer, at the legendary Mainstage and throughout the festival grounds," Tomorrowland founder Michiel Beers said in a statement. "As the stories of each theme cannot be expressed fully during the festival, we have dreamt for years of taking more time to develop them."
That's the only hint about the content of the series right now, though Lucas intends for the trilogy to have crossover appeal with fantasy fiction fans as well as Tomorrowland's loyal festivalgoers.
Tomorrowland's 2022 flagship festival takes place in just over two weeks, from 15th July through 29th July at Boom in Belgium. The full timetable for the 800+ artists is out now.
Tomorrowland will also expand this summer with a new programme of production and DJ education courses for kids and adults. Find more information here.
