Belgium electronic dance music festival Tomorrowland will soon introduce a DJ and Producer School focused on both online and offline sessions and traineeships. The school’s target audience includes both children and adults. As shared on the Tomorrowland website, “The Tomorrowland academy wants to encourage youngsters all over the world to develop their creative skills, by providing access to everything needed to produce, release, create, and perform music & arts.”
A Kids Camp is currently scheduled to take place from July 11 to 14, 2022, in the festival’s hometown of Boom, Flanders, Belgium. Kids and teenagers will be mentored by professional DJs during a week of DJ and producing workshops. Beatmatching, phase matching, EQ-ing & filtering, Rekordbox, loops, hot cues, and live performance on one of the Official Tomorrowland stages round out the program. Participants will also be given a backstage tour of the Tomorrowland venue and will receive an Official Tomorrowland Academy Certificate upon completion of this training course.
The academy for adults will take place between the festival dates viz between July 18 and 21, 2022, and July 25 – 28, 2022. The course includes a week of teaching and coaching by professional DJs, talks with industry experts, networking sessions with Tomorrowland artists, and also, full access to Tomorrowland 2022. After concluding this training course, attendees will also receive an Official Tomorrowland Academy Certificate. Tomorrowland is also planning to launch an online academy as well as a DJ and production school in 2023.
Returning with live audiences of 600,000 people after two years, this year’s festival will take place over three weekends with the theme being ‘The Reflection of Love’.
Tomorrowland previously opened the Love Tomorrow Music & Arts School in Sekha, Nepal, situated on the Himalayan mountain range, in 2018. Tomorrowland’s sustainable venture Love Tomorrow and the Belgian NGO Cunina worked together to develop this school. The structure was entirely funded by efforts from Tomorrowland visitors.
