Belgium used to just be known for chips with mayonnaise, mussels, that little statue of a child having a wee and…that's it. That's all Belgium was known for. That all changed in 2005 when Belgium started hosting the largest festival in the world, Tomorrowland. Yeah, that's right. Little old Belgium plays home to the biggest festival on the planet. Mad. Just imagine how many chip vans must be on site. It truly boggles the mind.


Tomorrowland has since ventured abroad, with sister festivals popping off in the US (TomrrowWorld) and Brazil (the imaginatively named Tomorrowland Brasil), but it's the original that we hold dear to our hearts.
