Tomorrowland music festival on April 23, 2016.

Come one, come all to the “most magical gathering on Earth.” There will be thrills, soaring notes, and death-defying feats of DJ daring. It's all happening under the big top in Boom, Belgium for Tomorrowland 2017, and the theme is a very circus-y Amicorum Spectaculum.

“What does that mean?” I hear you say. Well, “Amicorum” is Latin from the root word “amicus” meaning “friend.” You don't need to be told what Spectaculum means, because you are learned, so Tomorrowland 2017 is all set to be the an extravaganza of good times with all your closest mates and strangers who could become acquaintances, besties, maybe even lovers.

The announcement on Facebook features blue and cream images of ring leaders, Ferris wheels, card tricks, palm readers, circus tents, hot-air balloons, an accordion, and other festive freakishness. Check the announcement below. Tickets go on sale Jan. 21, Jan. 28, and Feb. 4 at 3 pm CET. Check for more details.
