Kortrijk, Belgium, 26 November 2015 – The Antwerp Sportpaleis, Belgium’s largest indoor venue, is gearing up to welcome no fewer than 10,000 music enthusiasts for the world première of ‘This was Tomorrow’ – a movie about the popular Tomorrowland festival. Just like Tomorrowland itself, the première is set to be a magical, mythical and memorable event, with special effects and live music from the National Orchestra of Belgium. Barco’s leading laser technology, its Flagship Laser DP4K-60L projector, will ensure that the audience will be fully immersed in the story of Tomorrowland.

The secret of Tomorrowland’s worldwide success? Much more than the music, it’s the total concept: Tomorrowland offers festival-goers a dream world in which they can immerse themselves for a couple of days. The movie: ‘This was Tomorrow’, which premières tonight, bundles the magic highlights of Tomorrowland in 2015, such as the first edition of Tomorrowland Brasil; interviews with the world’s biggest DJs and stories of the ‘People of Tomorrow’. The legendary creators of Tomorrowland wanted the movie to breathe that very same pumping, vibrant atmosphere as the festival itself. Barco’s Flagship Laser projectors helped make this dream come true. Flagship Laser for big events
With more than 60 Flagship Laser projectors around the world, Barco is the clear global market leader in cinema laser projection. While this cutting-edge technology has, so far, mainly found its way into cinemas, it is also ideal to create exceptional spectator experiences at any type of event. The unequalled brightness, high contrast and deep, rich colors that Barco’s Flagship Laser projectors promote make them ideal to immerse the dance enthusiasts at tomorrow’s première into the colorful, fairytale world of Tomorrowland. More than a hype, it’s a revolution …
"'More than a hype, Tomorrowland is a revolution,' says DJ Armin Van Buuren in the Tomorrowland movie. His quote dovetails perfectly with our Flagship Laser projectors," comments Wim Buyens, Senior Vice President Entertainment for Barco. “Laser projection technology has entered the digital visualization market after 60 years of xenon lamps and it’s revolutionizing the projection industry. The benefits of laser projection make it a joy for every spectator. So we’re delighted that Tomorrowland chose our cutting-edge technology to show their première movie and let people be part of their spectacular journey!”About Barco
