Prepare for Tomorrowland

This page will be updated shortly before the event

For the second time, Tomorrowland Around the World will unite people in small Tomorrowland gatherings at people's homes. Dress up in your most dazzling festival outfit, put up your tent in your backyard to create your own DreamVille, set up a big screen, and check-check-double-check your internet connection. Luckily, you have plenty of time to test what works best for your home set-up, so plug in, test the player, connect your devices, and get into the mood for Around the World. 

The event will run on any device supporting WebGL (except via a browser on your smart tv). You can find the official test here; if you see a spinning cube, this means that your device supports WebGL.
You can find a list of all compatible browsers here. 

For the best HD viewing experience, your download speeds of the internet connection should be 6 Mbit. Is your download speed lower, no worries, you are still able to view the festival! You can do a test of your internet connection speed here.

You may also want to calibrate your screen to an optimal setting with this guideline video.

DEVICES 

You can watch Tomorrowland Around The World on any device with a stable internet connection. We do advise you to watch Tomorrowland Around The World on a big screen like a television or computer for the optimal experience or even better: project it on a big screen! 
 

USING AN HDMI CABLE

The best way to mirror your PC onto your TV is by use of an HDMI cable.

  • Plug one end into the HDMI port at the back of your TV and the other into the HDMI port on your laptop (if yours doesn’t have one, add a separate HDMI adapter).
  • Switch the TV to the necessary correct input.
  • The only catch… is that you’ll need an HDMI cable, but if you don’t, chances are that one of your friends has one lying around the house somewhere. It’s also available in every multimedia store.
  • Some new Macbooks and Microsoft Surface laptops have a Mini DisplayPort, instead. If you have an HDMI cable, find a ‘Mini DisplayPort to HDMI adapter’ or a ‘Mini DisplayPort to HDMI cable’ to make the connection.

 

USING  CHROMECAST

Another easy way to get your computers’ display onto a TV, this time without even having to use cables.

  • Open Tomorrowland Around the World in your browser and right-click on the settings of the open tab to find ‘cast’.
  • Connect to the device you want to cast the live stream to, and you’re done!
  • The only catch here is that you’ll need a strong and reliable Wi-Fi signal. Try a speed test (http://tomorrow.land/speedtest) to make sure your connection is powerful enough, and make sure your festival set-up isn’t too far away from your router.
  • Though the video stream might be more reliable via cable, it sure is the easiest way to do wireless mirroring
  • Due to Digital Rights Protection casting will only be possible when you cast your entire screen.

 

USING AIRPLAY

Are you a fully trained Apple user? Then AirPlay Mirroring might be the right set-up for you.

  • Make sure you have an Apple TV box hooked up to your television station, allowing you to use Apple AirPlay to wirelessly mirror the live stream from your Apple device.
  • If you want to switch stages, please refresh and go to the stage you want to view. 

 

AUDIO AND CALIBRATION

  • If your home audio system is already linked to your television or projector, then the audio should also connect automatically during this festival experience.
  • You may want to calibrate your screen to optimal settings with this guideline video: http://tomorrow.land/calibrate
