Tomorrowland denies access to 38 ticket holders deemed security threats

This post was originally published on this site

Tomorrowland has taken a step in festival security that no other multi-day festival has before.

Organizers of the Boom, Belgium-based event are on the defensive this year for the festival’s twelfth iteration, with the threat of terrorism especially emphasized after the suicide bombing attack on Ariana Grande’s Dangerous Woman tour in Manchester. The evacuation of Nuremburg’s Rock am Ring in June after the receipt of a credible terror threat provided further cause for caution. Federal police in Belgium have acknowledged Tomorrowland’s screening of each and every ticket holder this year. 400,000 tickets were sold for the festival’s 2017 edition.

Belgian police officials evaluated ticket holders on what has since said to have been strict “criteria” by various Belgian media sources. While the details of that criteria have not been released in order to ensure the utmost level of effectiveness in the evaluation process, it is known that those barred entry to the festival were not rejected on the grounds of prior drug offenses. Thirty-eight ticket holders were refused access to the festival once the comprehensive screening was completed, the examination focusing on ticket holders’ respective potential for radical behavior. All staff members were screened along with ticket holders.

The mayors of Boom and Rumst lent Tomorrowland permission to screen the thousands of ticket holders. Due to a Tomorrowland ticket’s link to one’s full legal name and country of origin, the process was expedited and the information sought immediately obtained.

Gotcha Covered: “Don’t Dream It’s Over”

This post was originally published on this site

When you break it down, Crowded House’s “Don’t Dream It’s Over” is a pretty strange song. It’s got a singalong hook, but it’s an almost desperately frustrated one; it’s a defiant message that sounds like it’s about to fall into a state of defeatism; it’s one of the most recognizable songs of the mid ’80s … More »
