This past September, ID&T’s flagship festival made its way across the ocean and touched down in Chattahoochee Hills – a small town just outside of Atlanta, Georgia. For three days, revelers celebrated in what has unanimously been described as an incredible success by both fans and townsfolk alike. Whether you missed out on the experience or attended history in the making, TomorrowWorld’s official recap video — one that clocks in at just under 17-minutes — perfectly sums up the excitement, energy and euphoria of ID&T’s first American festival.
TomorrowWorld returns to Chattahoochee Hills on September 26, 27, 28 in 2014. Pre-registration begins on January 22nd. Tickets go on sale February 22nd.
On Thursday, the 2013 Amsterdam Dance Event held a highly anticipated Q&A session with SFX head of acquisitions Shelly Finkel and ID&T CEO/Founder Duncan Stutterheim where they announced SFX’s 100-percent ownership of the Dutch event production company. On SFX’s first SEC filing, it was revealed that a majority stake (75-percent) was owned by the American corporation.
“We finalized the deal an hour ago, instead of the previous 75-percent, ID&T is now going to be 100-percent owned by SFX. Now it’s very clear, I work for SFX. I will be working at head office in Europe, and we’re going to still create the same shows. But from this point, ID&T and SFX will be together.” – Duncan Stutterheim
Last year, Duncan reported that he turned down a 100 million dollar offer from an American investor, however, was convinced that SFX was the right home for ID&T to expand into the global market. Finkel also hinted at the potential acquisition of a ticketing platform as well as a new digital strategy that will expand Beatport’s digital content platform.

After exporting Sensation and TomorrowWorld to the United States, ID&T has announced the North American edition of their famed Mysteryland. The festival will be coming a long way from its Netherlands origin, landing at upstate New York’s most historic site — Bethel Woods, home of the original Woodstock of 1969. Mysteryland will be a three-day affair and is slated to take place during Memorial Day Weekend of 2014.
Attendance will be limited to 20,000 fans each day for a genre-spanning event that is slated production value of $10 million. News comes less than a week after it was reported that Insomniac has set sights on Woodstock ’94 grounds, Winston Farms, for next year’s Electric Daisy Carnival — also expected to land on Memorial Day Weekend.
As TomorrowWorld’s inaugural event in Chattahoochee Hills looms on the horizon; ID&T has forged a partnership between the festival and Wynn Las Vegas’s premiere clubs XS and Encore Beach Club has been established. Poised to bring the pomp and grandeur of Las Vegas nightlife to rural Georgia on September 27-29, XS and Encore’s unparalleled hospitality will set an unprecedented standard for the festival’s first foray on American soil.
“We are excited to partner with Wynn Las Vegas to elevate the VIP guest experience to new heights,” said Festival Director Shawn Kent. “The combination of top-quality service while immersed in the TomorrowWorld experience will be unprecedented for the discerning guest.”
Starting at $10,000, table reservations include admission to the festival, including a private entrance to the expansive VIP area. Fans will receive access to all of the amenities one would find at any of the Wynn properties, including an extensive bottle service menu and award-winning staff on hand.
“Tomorrowland is one of the most impressive music festivals in the world,” said Jesse Waits, managing partner of XS and Tryst. “As TomorrowWorld debuts in the States, we aim to make the attendees’ first impression a lasting one by offering the same VIP experience that can only be found at Wynn Las Vegas. Our staff and services surrounded by the highly anticipated event’s signature elements will create an incomparable feast for EDM fans across the globe.”
