Watch: 30-Minute Tomorrowland 2013 Aftermovie

What Tomorrowland did this year was rewrite the rulebook of what a festival experience should be; that’s one from start to finish. ‘The Arising of Life’ theme transformed what is now a legendary site and landscape – the magical De Schorre in Boom, Belgium. Floating stages and an arena draped with fresh flowers that were timed to bloom as the gates opened were just some of the highlights. Its centerpiece – the largest, most breath-taking main stage construction ever built – was a fully functioning computerized, pyrotechnic and state of the art volcano, equipped with water falls and eruptions that went off to the loudest beat!

This year, Tomorrowland welcomed residents from over 214 countries, more than the number that attended the London 2012 Olympics. The 185-acre site was awash with flags from every part of the world, many captured throughout the most anticipated after movie of the year.

The epic record breaking 14-minute and 20-minute after movie masterpieces, from Tomorrowland 2011 and 2012 respectively, have not only put what is now the planet’s biggest and most popular festival firmly on the map, they have also given over 155 million viewers the opportunity to delve into what WAS Belgium’s best kept secret, but IS now the world’s most popular music festival phenomenon.
