Tomorrowland, the world’s biggest EDM festival originated in Belgium, is in talks with a local entertainment promoter to expand the festival to Thailand.
“Thailand should look to hold more world-class entertainment events in order to strengthen its “travel-tainment” industry and attract more visitors to the country.” said Chatri Tungthiankul, Managing Director of World Planet Entertainment.
Rather than this just being a possibility, Thailand’s Minister of Tourism and Sports, Kobkan Watthanawarangkoon said that the Convention and Exhibition Bureau ( TCEB ) is also finding ways to accomplish this enormous project.
This expansion is more likely to happen if Thailand is able to provide a suitable location for this famous festival and accommodation for the EDM fans while ensuring that their transitions in and out of the country runs smoothly.
“We have to prepare a venue that can host up to 450,000 attendees. We will also have to be ready to facilitate the journey for festival-goers from other countries, specifically at the immigration control, because when people travel to the festival in other countries – Belgium, Brazil and the US – their personalized festival bracelet does all the work, including that of a passport.” said Chatri Tungthiankul
Tungthiankul also went on to say China as well as Japan are also interested in hosting the festival.
