Food and drink.

You can choose from 120 food stands offering everything from vegan options to authentic Belgian chocolate. If you opt for a VIP ticket there's a special menu available, serving up something new each day.

Tomorrowland is completely cashless - you are provided with a bracelet which you top up to spend on food, drink and merch.
