TomorrowLand 2013

Hello,

Im from Canada. I know Tomorrowland 2013 is a long time away but im very excited and want to start planning asap in hopes i can get my parents to agree to let me go.

I am planning on staying in Mechelen, from what i understand this is the best place to stay for the festival? Can someone give me some suggestions on hotels, preferably cheap! lol

How long does the bus (500) take to get from Mechelen to Boom? Also will there be shuttle busses after the festival? Im not sure how i will be able to get back to Mechenlen station... im sure the transit will have stopped running.

Danielle :)

You placed this question in the Brussels forum. The Tomorrowland festival takes place in Boom, near Antwerp, and I suggest you search in that forum for the information exchanged concerning practical arrangements for this year's festival.

You will see that it is difficult to get from the festival site to anywhere at all by public transport if you wait till the end of the proceedings: that is no doubt why a great many people camp there (or go by car). There are travel packages available which include accommodation in Mechelen or Antwerp together with transfers e.g. by minibus to and from Boom. But if you book your hotel separately, you may have to leave the festival site a couple of hours early to catch the last train/bus as these were not running very late during the festival (even if the latest bus 500 from Boom to Mechelen on a Saturday is currently at 01:22).

The 500 bus takes about 40 mins from Mechelen station to Boom Markt and runs about once an hour, you can download the timetable from …delijn.be/dienstregelingen/Dienstregelingen… - here is a current timetable for Saturday: …delijn.be/dienstregelingen/Kalender2011/Ant…

Hello there!

If you look on the "hotel" section of this page there are quite a few suggestions www.wikifestivals.com/wiki/tomorrowland

I know that last year they did city package deals where flights, accommodation, transfers and tickets were included HOWEVER unfortunately for you your nearest city for that choice is New York in the US.

Although I've heard rumours that they may include more cities this year so keep your ears open :-)

I went to Tomorrowland 2012. I stayed in Antwerp, Century Hotel (opposite central station). It took about 25-30mins on the bus to the festival and around the same on the train (friday only) due to more stops.

I am going again in 2013 and definitely will be staying in Antwerp again.

Getting back from the festival: Buses to various locations, ask people and stewards if you need directing to them, taxis are hard to get but there are 'illegal' taxis which you can make your own mind up on but myself and my 2 mates used one.

Im looking at going Tomorrowland 2013 and was hoping to start saving up for it, does anyone know how much the city package was in 2012? (The package with flights, travel, tickets to the festival and hotel rooms?)

Many Thanks

It seems that the Belgian Embassy in Abu Dhabi deals with visa applications for people from the United Arab Emirates.
