YES. It’s almost here. No, I’m not talking about boot season (although sure, I am super excited about that one too). I am talking about TomorrowWorld, the 3-day music festival and 5-day camping experience that combines nearly 300 DJs, mind-blowing décor, animation, A-class camping, eccentric comfort areas and gourmet food amid a breathtaking fantasy world backdrop. In a nutshell. Every September people from all over the world (over 160k people, you guys) descend on Atlanta and gather ’round for three incredible days of music in one of the most beautiful parts of Georgia. I was lucky enough to attend the inaugural edition of TomorrowWorld three years ago and am so SO excited to be heading back this weekend for what is sure to be an even more mind blowing experience.
Those of you ATLiens heading down this weekend (I hope you already have your tickets, but if not CLICK HERE to get ’em!) press play on the soundtrack below and then keep scrolling for some can’t-miss things to do, see and eat while on-site this weekend. For those of you not making it this year, worry not — you can still get down to the soundtrack below, live-stream the event live online and join the party via my INSTAGRAM and TWITTER all weekend long.
See you there, kiddos.
Love Unites Parade
On Saturday, September 26th from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m., Atlanta staple Blake’s on the Park will be hosting the Love Unites Parade at TomorrowWorld- the festival’s first-ever. Starting in DreamVille, the parade will feature drag queens performing a series of songs for the parade, with the first one taking place at the DreamVille Marketplace. The next couple performances will take place along the path and ending at the as of yet unannounced ATL Stage- with DJ Bill Bordeaux performing. Performers will also join the parade and help recruit festivals goers to join along and take part in the celebratory march.
9 Incredible Stages
Even if you’re not into any of the acts playing at a certain stage, I beyond encourage you to go to each stage at least once to check out the scene. With each stage comes a different experience and the high-end production at every single one of them is something to be seen with your own eyes.
TomorrowWorld Restaurants, fueled by Chef Kevin Gillespie and Red Beard Restaurants
TomorrowWorld announced its first chef partnership in conjunction with Red Beard Restaurants, the group created and owned by one of Atlanta’s hottest chefs, celebrated author and “Top Chef” finalist, Kevin Gillespie.
The music festival’s first sit-down restaurant experience, which will overlook the Main Stage and feature a new, fresh seasonal menu per day themed to one of Gillespie’s marquee restaurant concepts (traditional whole-hog barbecue Terminus City, award-winning restaurant Gunshow, and his newest Southern upscale eatery, Revival)
Grab a bite at the festival’s first ever sit-down restaurant experience, or take advantage of the picnic basket service for an al fresco meal. Serious foodies will 100% want to reserve a seat at Chef Gillespie’s intimate, seated 10-course dinner cooked and served on Saturday night of the festival.

“Glamp” all weekend with your #squad in TomorrowWorld’s on-site luxury camp ground, DreamVille. Apart from everything you could expect from festival camping, DreamVille has many unique features including a marketplace with multiple shops, food vendors, and experiences. Several community centers, wonderful activities and even its very own welcoming party, called “The Gathering.” Did I also mention there’s a hair salon, yoga classes, Cyc spin classes and organic dining options? YEAH, that’s how you do camping. Don’t worry — if you’re not the “glamping” type and just want to be one with nature there are lots of other camping options to choose from.
TomorrowWorld Helicopter Experience
Don’t feel like making the drive Atlanta? NO PROB, you can just take a helicopter and get there in 12 minutes. Yes, I am serious. Get more info by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
With over 300 DJs and acts on 9 different insane stages to choose from throughout the weekend, let’s just say you won’t be bored. Check out the full line up right HERE.
