Create a totem structure for TomorrowWorld

Creators Selected On
September 9, 2015
TomorrowWorld, the international edition of the world famous Tomorrowland music festival, invites artists from across the world to create a one-of-a-kind totem to be produced and displayed in DreamVille, the festival's vibrant camping city, as well as the festival grounds.

Judges are looking for a unique structure that will serve as both a beautiful piece of art as well as a photo opportunity destination for the campers. You may submit a ready-made piece, a visual storyboard or concept sketches.

The totem must adhere to this year's theme 'The Key To Happiness,' or incorporate the TomorrowWorld logo.

One Selected Artist will get to work with the festival's producers to bring their vision to life during the festival on September 25-27, 2015.
about tomorrowworld
TomorrowWorld is the first international edition of Tomorrowland, one of the world’s most popular electronic music festivals. In September 2013, the festival made its first international journey to the United States of America and to Chattahoochee Hills, Georgia. Like its European counterpart, TomorrowWorld is a 3-day festival (and 5-day camping experience), which sets a new level of festival with nearly 300 DJs, mind-blowing décor, animation, A-class camping (DreamVille), eccentric comfort areas and gourmet food.

Festival totems have long been used to help friends locate each other in a crowd, but have since become a form of creative expression within the dance music community. We wish to invite you as an artist to take part in this tradition and design your very own TomorrowWorld totem. - The TomorrowWorld Team
