Due to inclement weather in Chattahoochee Hills, Georgia, TomorrowWorld organizers decided to deny entry to the last day of the festival to any ticket holders without a DreamVille camping pass. Festivalgoers were outraged, rightfully so, and took to social media to express their discontent.
TomorrowWorld released the following statement:
“Today, Sunday September 27, TomorrowWorld will only be accessible to visitors currently camping at DreamVille. Continuous rainfall over the last three days has severely limited capacity of the parking lots, entrance roads and drop off locations in and around the festival site. The experience of the TomorrowWorld visitors is always TomorrowWorld’s number one priority, so TomorrowWorld was forced to close all daily parking lots and drop off locations. TomorrowWorld regrets that festivalgoers with day tickets, guest list tickets, and anyone not already camping at DreamVille will unfortunately not be able to access the festival. The last day of the festival will go on for the 40,000 visitors already situated in DreamVille, with David Guetta, Armin Van Buuren, and Martin Garrix all on deck.”
As if this wasn’t bad enough, people left stranded outside the festival’s grounds. Attendees were left out in the cold, rainy conditions without food, water, or transportation. No shuttles or shelter was provided to patrons after the close of the festival on Saturday night. Many had no other option than to walk as far as 9 miles in order to reach their vehicles.

Although poor weather conditions were out of the control of festival organizers, with hundreds of photos, tweets, and Facebook posts from TomorrowWorld attendees surfacing online, it’s safe to say that TomorrowWorld 2016 may not sell tickets so easily. Do you think TomorrowWorld will relocate next year?
@TomorrowWorld you have drugged/drunk people walking 5+ hours to their car with no cell reception sleeping on the road with no food/water
