Belgium’s got the beat. And currently, no more local tickets for Tomorrowland, whose Belgian ticket sale sold out in a record-breaking 40 minutes.

The 15 Greatest Dance Music Cities of All Time

More than 130,000 hopeful attendees are currently on the festival's waiting list, and the dance music mecca is anticipated to boast a whopping 180,000 over the weekend of July 22. What’s impressive (though not surprising for the festival with the heaviest ticket demand in the world) is that the musical lineup has not even been announced yet.

A flashy headliner name is not responsible for the festival’s pull; with this year’s theme slated as “The Elixir of Life,” it appears that dance fans are drawn to Tomorrowland for an incredible experience.

Tomorrowland’s worldwide ticket sales are on tap for next Saturday.
