The wait is finally over! The gates of Tomorrowland have swung open to welcome the ecstatic People of Tomorrow from all corners of the world to the magical realm in Boom, Belgium. As the sun sets and the stars start to twinkle in the night sky, the breathtaking 'Adscendo' Mainstage stands tall, captivating hearts and minds with its awe-inspiring beauty and enchanting allure.
This year’s Mainstage is a testament to Tomorrowland’s unwavering commitment to creativity, artistry, and innovation, as it takes centre stage in the spotlight.
The ‘Adscendo’ Mainstage has been a labour of love, requiring an extensive creative process that spanned nearly two years. From its initial conception to its grand realisation, every step was meticulously crafted in-house at Tomorrowland. The visionary creative team embarked on an exhilarating journey, translating their ideas into tangible forms of art. This process involved countless hours of sketching, mood boards, concept drawings, and 3D-modeling to shape the stage’s design. The Tomorrowland Atelier, with their skilled hands and boundless passion for creation, brought these ideas to life with intricately handcrafted sculptures and in-house decor.
Embracing the theme of ‘Adscendo,’ the 17th edition of Tomorrowland has transformed De Schorre into an enchanted destination high on the horizon.

Every visual element contributing to the Mainstage’s allure is a testament to artistry, with each sculpture lovingly shaped by a team of in-house artists. The collaborative effort and seamless synergy between different teams were crucial in achieving this level of grandeur.
