In the second half of the summer, according to Belgian Prime Minister Alexander De Croo (Open Vld), it should be possible to organize several larger festivals again. The prime minister was in contact with, among others, the festival organizers of Tomorrowland over the past weekend.
The Consultation Committee will discuss the exact details and determine the conditions on Tuesday. It is thought to grant access on the basis of the European 'green certificate'. Prime Minister De Croo discussed the development of that European vaccination passport with his European colleagues during the European Council this weekend.
Those who are not yet fully protected by vaccination should undergo rapid testing every day and access would be limited to European visitors (residents of the European Economic Area + the United Kingdom). Also, access would only be possible with pre-purchased tickets to enable tracing.
Prime Minister De Croo is convinced that it must be possible to organize this properly and safely. By August, all adults in our country had the chance to get vaccinated. Moreover, in our country we have a great deal of expertise in the events and festival sector. These are professionals who are among the best in the world.
