Tomorrowland is coming to Thailand in 2026

The national government wants to nurture a festival economy 

Tomorrowland Thailand announced

Tomorrowland is reportedly set to host its debut festival in Thailand in 2026.

The news was revealed last week by Thai Government spokesperson Chai Wacharonke, The Nation Thailand reports. The huge EDM showcase, which held its winter gathering in France earlier this month, and will welcome around 400,000 people to its annual flagship Belgian weekenders this summer, is part of wider efforts to boost the Thai economy through tourism and entertainment. Measures also include potential visa waivers for visitors. At the time of writing, dates have not been confirmed for the event itself.

If successful, a deal could see a total of 10 Tomorrowland Thailand events being planned, taking us into the mid-2030s, emphasising a concerted effort to establish a key festival destination in the region. A debut Thai edition of Japan's Summer Sonic is also set to take place on 24th and 25th August 2024, and this will also be the organisers' first ever dates in this part of Asia. 

In May, Tomorrowland will head to Colombia for the inaugural CORE Medellín festival, with Bicep, ANNA, Agents of Time, Kitty Amor, Chet Faker, Hercules & Love Affair, and Dana Montana on the bill. You can catch up on sets from this month's Tomorrowland Winter, here.

Earlier this year, it was announced that clubs in several Thailand cities can now stay open till 4 AM as the new curfew extension is in effect in specific nightlife areas.
