General questions

What is the minimum age to attend Tomorrowland?

The minimum age limit to enter the festival is 18. Anyone who turns 18 in 2018 is permitted entrance.

This is a strict policy and anybody born in 2001 or later, even if accompanied by an adult, will not be permitted entrance.

Can I work at Tomorrowland, even as volunteer?

This is not possible. Every year we work with the same suppliers and our own loyal staff. During the production days we do not have the time to train new crew.

The acts and dancers are the same team each year and this cannot be offered to other people.

We cannot allow volunteers to work at Tomorrowland as it is prohibited by Belgian Law.

How will my Bonus Pearls be spent if I top up more than € 100 at once?

If you put, for example, € 200 (= 130 Pearls) onto your Bracelet, you will spend your Pearls in the following sequences:

Top-up example = € 200 ( 130 Pearls + 4 Bonus Pearls) 
- 65 Pearls (€ 100)

Are my Bonus Pearls refundable or can they be used as refund fee?

Bonus Pearls are not refundable and cannot be used as refund fee.

I have charged my Bracelet before AND at the festival. How do I apply for a refund?

If your current balance doesn't exceed the amount you topped up before coming to the festival you do not need to take any steps, your leftover Pearls will be refunded automatically.

If your current balance is higher than what you topped up before the festival you will have to request a manual refund for the amount that is left after your automatic refund. Please follow the instructions here.

I used a Pearl card, can I get a refund?

A refund for a Pearl card works exactly the same as a manual refund for a Bracelet. You can follow all the instructions here.

Where can I request a manual refund?

You can request a refund online by following the steps on this page: www.tomorrowland.com/en/refunds

The manual refund form will be available shortly after the festival.

If you did not yet create a Tomorrowland account you will be asked to do so, please make sure to add your Bracelet to the account.
