The study aims to assess whether hosting a Tomorrowland event in Thailand is feasible. While no official confirmation has been made regarding the event, Tomorrowland has expressed appreciation for the Thai authorities’ enthusiasm to welcome the festival.

If held in Thailand, it would mark the fourth time Tomorrowland has organised an event outside of Belgium.
