A couple of days ago we reported with much excitement that Tomorrowland dance festival might be heading to Thailand. However, it turns out is was all just some sorry misunderstanding. 

In an article on Billboard.com, a Tomorrowland spokesperson shut down the rumor as a mistranslation of a story originally published by the Thai publication Post Today that was picked up and spread by the world's EDM news outlets. 

Turns out Tomorrowland is NOT looking to expand into Asia at the present time, though it will host Unite, a separate one-day event, in two Asian countries this year, India and Japan.

As for those original quotes from Thai promoter World Planet Entertainment's managing director Chatri Tungthiankul, what he was saying is the Thai government should look to host a large-scale event such as Tomorrowland as a way to boost tourism. 

Known for its elaborate set designs, Tomorrowland is an annual global music festival that welcomes some 300,000 visitors each year and has featured huge headliners like David Guetta, Hardwell, Armin Van Buuren, Swedish House Mafia and Skrillex. This year's festival takes place from Jul 22-24 in Boom, Belgium. In recent years, Tomorrowland has branched out to Brazil and the USA.
