Following the unprecedented demand for tickets in the recent Tomorrowland presale, the Belgian festival’s organisers have today announced a change in ticket sale measures for Saturday’s worldwide sale.
Last week, the Tomorrowland presale exclusively for Belgian residents left many fans upset when the server of ticket sale website Timoco failed to cope with the demand. The March 24 presale offered up 80,000 of the festival’s 180,000 tickets for locals – but by the time the sale began, a whopping 250,000 would be punters had logged on to Timoco in hopes of securing their place at the festival. Unsurprisingly, the site struggled to deal with the demand, and many trying to purchase tickets were left waiting in an hours-long online queue before the presale quickly sold out.
In a post on their Facebook today, Tomorrowland has announced that it’s taken “necessary measures” to ensure the worldwide ticket sale procedure works more efficiently than the Belgian presale. Rather than remaining with Timoco, Tomorrowland has moved ticket sales to website Paylogic. The remainder of the highly sought after Tomorrowland tickets go on sale April 7 at 11am Central European Summer Time, or 7pm Australian Eastern Standards Time.
