Types of Tickets

There are a variety of tickets that Tomorrowland offers. If you would like to know how obtain these very sought after tickets, jump to section 3. How to Get Tickets. The three main catergories of tickets offered are simple day/weekend passes without camping, weekend passes with camping and Global Journey which are tickets that include weekend passes, accommodation and means of travel. If you are curious about ticket costs for day/weekend passes and camping passes, check out our own dedicated page for ticket prices.

Tickets Without Camping

If you do not want to camp, live relatively close to the festival location or will organize your own accommadation, these tickets are for you!
The following tickets are offered:

Day Passes - for either Friday, Saturday or Sunday.
Full Madness Pass - access for the entire weekend.

Each ticket has a "Comfort" vesion which will give you access to separate, usually elevated, viewing decks and some stages throughout the festival. Day passes also have a "Pleasure" version, which includes access to some (but not all) separate viewing decks as well.

Tickets With Camping

Tomorrowland offers a variety of accommondations if you wish to camp close to the festival site. Keep in mind, the more expensive the accomondation, the less likely you will be able to score such a ticket during any of the sales. The list is in order of increasing price. Again, check out pricing for each individual ticket on our dedicated page.
The following accommodations are offered:

Magnificent Greens - Bring your own tent and everything else.
Magnificent Greens 1P/2P Tent - Pick up a Tomorrowland tent once you arrive.
Magnificent Greens Camp2Camp - Tomorrowland will pitch a previously owned tent for you.

All camping tickets have a "Comfort" version which gives you access to various comfort stages throughout the weekend, including a comfort stage at "The Gathering" which is a warm-up evening with a stage just for people camping. For details of what's included in these packages as well as pictures of each,
visit the official Tomorrowland website.

Global Journey

Global Journey combines camping tickets listed above with travel accomondations. These travel accommodations can be via bus, train or plane. If you are curious about Global Journey prices, Tomorrowland usually publishes a simulator at the beginning of each year. We have not listed prices here for Global Journey as the pricing is very complex and depends on means of travel and accomondation. Tomorrowland puts a hefty premium on Global Journey, as these are usually the tickets that aren't sold out immediately. There are various spreadsheets out there made from fans that can give you a good estimate of the cost. We have linked a couple Global Journey Spreadsheet #1 and Global Journey Spreadsheet #2.

How to Get Tickets

This section is relatively big as it is not easy to get a highly sought after Tomorrowland ticket for a resonable price. Tomorrowland is notorious for selling out almost instantly in their various sales, and therefore it is of essence to plan ahead when trying to score a ticket. Before we go through each option, we want to emphasize that in the past people have tried to get trough ticket queue on sale-day by writing scripts, opening multiple tabs, multiple browser or accessing the site from multiple IP adresses. As of 2019, Tomorrowland has implemented that each person trying to buy a ticket has to create a Tomorrowland account to access. Therefore, these methods above do not necessarily work anymore and we do not condone the use of such. If you were looking for such a method here, do not read any further as we are only telling you about the official ways that will save you all the trouble. With dedication, you will be able to score a tickt (or with the right amount of money). All individuals attempting to acquire tickets directly through Tomorrowland must register at tomorrowland.com. Registration usually starts in December the year before the festival. In 2023, registration opens December 7th at 17:00 CET. Before we start, the order of ticket possibilities here is the order we have attempted to score tickets for every edition since 2017. We have succeeded every year so far! (1x Pre-Sale, 1x FG Sale, 2x Waiting list). Here we go:

First 20 Sale

The First 20 Sale is reserved for 20 invidiuals of each country that were the fastest at registering once registration opens. It is more likely to be in this sale if you register in time from a smaller country (like Luxemburg, Liechtenstein, San Marino... you get the idea). However, for countries like the Germany or the United States, it's way less likely to be in the Top 20. It requires a lot of luck to receive tickets this way, but it is a possibility. If you are one of the first 20, you have a dedicated sale that guarantees 4 tickets of your choice for the festival.

Belgian Sale

The Belgian Sale, as the name suggests, is for Belgian residents only. Keep in mind that you need a Belgian address to participate in this sale. You do not need to be a Belgian citizen. If you have a Belgian address, you will have the option to participate in this sale with you tomorrowland account. On the day of sale, a dedicated shop button will pop up in your Tomorrowland account. In 2022, this sale occurred on the 25th of January at 11:00 CET. It is likely you will receive tickets this way if you enter the shop on time. According to Dutch media, 200.000 tickets are sold during the Belgian Pre-Sale alone.

Pre-Sale

The Pre-Sale is for individuals of all nationalities and for everyone that did not make the First 20 Sale. This is likely the first sale you will participate in attempting to score tickets. The Pre-Sale has a couple differences compared to the "Worldwide Sale" below. 100.000 tickets are sold during the pre-sale as of 2019 and prices tend to be a little cheaper that the "Worldwide Sale". In 2023, this sale will occur on the 28th of January 2023, at 17:00 CET. Tickets for last editions were sold-out in under an hour, with most sought after tickets gone after 10 minutes.

Worldwide Sale

The Worldwide Sale works the same way as the Pre-Sale, with a couple differences. First of all, prices for every ticket are roughly 10% more expensive. Secondly, only roughly 70.000 tickets are available making it even more difficult to acquire tickets this way. The Worldwide Sale takes place on the 4th of February 2023, at 17:00 CET. One week after the pre-sale.

Friendship Garden Sale

Still don't have tickets after all these steps but have 9 other friends on hand? Then this sale is for you. The Friendship Garden Sale is a sale particularly for Friendship Garden Tickets only. You will have to register separately for this sale some time while registration is open. Tomorrowland will send out an e-mail as to when this is (usually also in December/January). Before attempting to take apart of this sale, we recommend that all of your friends register and that you make a WhatsApp/Facebook etc. group to discuss finances and so on. This sale is expected zo take place on the 21st of January, 2023.

Global Journey Sale

If money is not an issue for you, this sale will almost guarantee you tickets and even accommodate you with travel if needed. The Global Journey Sale starts on the 21st of January 2023 at 17:00 CET. This sale gives you the opportunity to combine any Tomorrowland ticket with Bus, Train or Plane as well as accommodation outside Dreamville (the camping grounds). This comes at a cost however and can easily double/triple/quadruple the original ticket prices. But again, if money is not the issue and you really want to experience Tomorrowland, we can almost guarantee you can score tickets this way. To enter this sale, you will also need to have a Tomorrowland account. You will find the deidcate shop button in your account at sale start.

Waitinglist Sale

With our team scoring tickets at "Worldwide Sale" prices with this twice in the past 4 years, we can definitely recommend this sale if you do not necessarily want to splurge during the Global Journey Sale. Once all sales have passed, Tomorrowland will send out the option to register in the "Waitinglist Sale". In past years, this e-mail was sent out some time at the end of January/beginning of February. Once registered, there will be 'waves' of e-mails sent out to a lucky few usually once a month leading up to the festival. Usually once a month, there will be an e-mail stating that some regular sale participants have decided to give their tickets away. This will be your opportunity to participate in the dedicated "Waitinglist Sale". If chosen, Tomorrowland will send you specific infos on when this sale takes place. Some lucky Tomorrowland participants have received such an e-mail up to a week before the festival at the beginning of July. Therefore you should be a festival goer of spontaneous nature!

Travel Partners

The ONLY other OFFICIAL way to get Tomorrowland tickets not direclty through your Tomorrowland is through travel partners. Tomorrowland lists all official travel partners on their website. Find all current Tomorrowland travel partners here. Partners are sorted by continent, and each come with different offers such as travel and accommodation. This is usually also more expensive that Global Journey etc.

Viagogo, Ebay and other Sites

Neither Tomorrowland, nor festivalviewer.com endorses acquiring tickets this way. In Tomorrowland's terms of service, it specifically states that ticket sales outside of Tomorrowland and its travel partners are forbidden. There have been cases where individuals have gotten tickets this way, and showed up to the gates only to be not let in. We do not recommend obtaining tickets this way, and will not give further details on how this can be done.

Vouchers

When the dates to the festivals get closer, Tomorrowland will start offering a variety of vouchers on their website during their voucher sale. These vouchers can be purchased solely through your Tomorrowland account.
