CORE is the latest development in a turbulent pipeline from Tomorrowland, which has found the legendary dance music brand making up for lost time after a brutal series of pandemic-induced postponements.

The inaugural CORE is scheduled for May 27-28. Organizers plan to reveal a full lineup and art installation schedule soon, according to the Press release.

“We are very proud that Tomorrowland and Rock Werchter, two of the most important players in the world of music, are coming to Brussels with this new concept,” said Philippe Close, Mayor of Brussels. “A total experience of music, art and nature. Brussels celebrates and thus allows events, culture and the hotel industry to breathe again.”
