I went to Tomorrowland 2014 completely solo. Best thing I could have possibly done in Europe.
On the first shuttle bus I met the two dudes who I would be hanging out with for the majority of the festival. I was lucky, because there are three reasons to go to Tomorrowland: Drugs, Sex, or Music. They were there for the music, like I was.
Smuggle in some food if you can… the food there is horrendously expensive. I took raw potatoes and carrots and just ate them like that rather than pay their nasty food prices all day.
you can bring a water bottle in. Do that. Make sure it’s empty and hide the cap in your bra or whatever. They don’t pat you down, they just check backpacks/purses.
I paid more for my ticket because the hotel and flight packages don’t sell out as fast as the cheaper ones that go on sale later. I remember being poised above the mouse (should I get it? Should I wait?) I clicked “confirm”, and I have never regretted it. Probably the best experience of my life. I could pay twice that price and it would still be worth it. Going solo was easy… at least as a woman, you will make friends easily.
The two dudes who I was hanging out with took SO many pictures and videos that I felt like I needed to be constantly documenting the experience as well. The third night I lost them in the crowd and hung out with someone from Jordon who doesn’t even bring his phone in to festivals. He got me to put my phone away and just live it. I gotta say that’s the best way to do it. It’s too stressful to be constantly looking around trying to get a good click. He also offered me drugs, to which my standard “nah man” sufficed as a refusal.
One of the dozen or so stages…
Love the information desk.
