July 21, 2016

SES, the global satellite operator, and Tomorrowland, the electronic dance music festival, have announced their collaboration to broadcast the main festival in Belgium live to seven countries in HD.

Tomorrowland, a three-day festival, is expecting a turnout of 180,000 at its main venue in Boom, Belgium. Themed UNITE, the second night of the event will be simultaneously held in seven other countries – Mexico, India, Japan, Colombia, Germany, South Africa and Israel.

“Satellite remains the ideal platform for the transmission of live events in high picture quality to a large audience,” said Laurent Petit, Vice President, Global Accounts & Occasional Use at SES. “We are proud to partner with Tomorrowland and bring the magic of the festival to thousands of music lovers across the world. For the event to be successful, the festival’s madness needs to be constantly on, and for that a seamless live connection is key. Contributing to UNITE is a logical activity for us, as the event’s goal is the same as ours: connecting the world, beyond borders.”
