For the past 10 years, thousands upon thousands of EDM lovers have made the journey to Boom, Belgium, for one of the world's most elaborate and magical electronic music festivals. This year, to celebrate the fest's 10th anniversary, Tomorrowland was extended to two weekends, allowing 360,000 lucky people from around the globe to experience the magic and the love.

1. When you get your invite you get all tingly knowing that you've literally received the key to happiness.

5. When you make it to the campgrounds, you can't help but jump for joy.

9. The scale of everything is really something to behold.

10. It's basically like you're Alice in Wonderland.

11. You exchange your money for Tomorrowland tokens.

Because this is a world with a currency all its own.


15. If you fancy yourself something a little classy, you can even sip some champagne at the cava bar.

16. When you need to recover from your food coma, there's no better place to plop down for a nap than right by the canal.

The distant sounds of thumping bass can actually be quite soothing.


26. You rep your country's flag loud and proud.

31. And though it may seem cheesy to the outside world, you know that here everyone understands they're all in this together.

It really IS about "peace, love, unity, and respect."


33. The festival grounds are so big and elaborate, you never know when you'll stumble into an amazing tucked-away stage, like the Rave Cave.

34. Or this tent marked "Magic Mirrors."

35. Where German DJ and producer Nico Pusch played an amazing deep house set to a full crowd on Sunday.


(You can listen to his full set here.)

36. But the colossal crowd at the main stage never ceases to take your breath away.

37. And though it may seem daunting, you're amazed by how possible it is to get from the very back to the front of the massive crowd.

No pushing, no elbowing, just love.


42. Whether you're rocking to Australian sister duo NERVO...

43. ...losing your mind to festival highlight and wunderkind Martin Garrix...

44. ...or getting emotional when Above & Beyond brings up a fan to push the button...

45. There's something for everyone.

46. Even neighbors of the festival LOVE coming every year, because they know it's something truly special to witness and be a part of.
