With its charming decor, Tomorrowland feels like a fairy tale. At Dreamville camping they love to add the Thousand and One Nights experience. At least for those who are willing to pay some monthly wages for it.
“I want to sleep in it someday,” says Matt, 39, from Australia, pointing to something we have. little house He will call. “4600 euros for a weekend is a lot of money, but once in my life I really want to give it to her.” He’s talking about Ensuites, the hotel’s campground experience. Think of a building with hard flooring, a bedroom with air conditioning, a double bed, a bedside table with a socket, a private bathroom with shower and toilet, and a door that you simply lock. Matt, a sales engineer, has to deal with a 2,600 euro cottage right now, “But look around, you’ll get a lot in return.”
The sweeping view embodies an all-inclusive resort with hot tubs, pool, lounge, live piano music, singing, beauty salon, hairdresser, and all kinds of buffets and attention. Lots of attention. What’s called Good morning angels Walk around the huts in the morning to greet everyone with kindness. Levi de Werdt, who has been observing this luxury camping site for five years, continues to get excited. He greets his guests extensively at the breakfast buffet, asks about their night and if there are any wishes. ‘Attention is part of the pampering we provide. Or people who pay more get more attention? That went without any warning.’
Was it now 1,000 or 3,000 euros?
The Ensuites – there are only six of them – is the pinnacle of this camping site, but the other accommodations are great too. In amounts between 1,600 and 4,600 euros for two people. This includes overnight accommodation, festival admission and often also airline tickets, mainly foreigners spending the night here. More specifically: people in their 30s who often don’t even know exactly how much they paid for this. “Was it 1,000, was it 3,000?” We hear it many times. The difference in the average monthly wage evaporates into thin air.
“People who spend the night here often rise to a higher standard in their own lives,” Levy continues. They are used to the best hotels, but they also want to be close to the festival here. In total, this concerns 1,700 people distributed over 900 places of residence. “Not even 1 percent of the number of visitors at the weekend. This is a very small group that we work very hard for. But these are the people you can’t get to Tomorrowland on a regular camp site. Levi knows his guests very well. These are even the ones you can’t Call them festival goers, as many of them point out.Tomorrowland and its winter variant seem to be the only festival many visit.
With Venezuelan Gabi (36) and her Swiss partner Flavio (35), it’s a little different, they like to put their €2,600 cabana in a different perspective. “We now live in Switzerland, but when I was taking long flights from Venezuela, I sometimes made that much with a plane ticket alone,” Gabe says. Everything is included in the price here. I’m just saying: if you really come from afar, you’re used to these rates.
Private Chef, Private Butler, Private Jet
A large number of engineers, insurance agents, success coaches, people who launched an application, IT experts … the professional careers of festival visitors often refer to running their own companies. But in one of the rooms that everyone envied … a student. Israeli Les Porat, 27, and his friends managed to get two of these luxury suites. “I don’t know how we were able to book this and the rest didn’t,” he laughs. “I could just click on it, so I did.” It seems like money isn’t an issue for this student, but luxury doesn’t really matter either. I was in the army. I sleep on the floor as I sleep in bed. But staying here all night is a very exclusive thing, and it’s always nice to take in.
Boys from Israel are very good at this camping place. But they clearly don’t have one thing: strict privacy. Everyone is so curious about where they are that many walk to take a look. Turns out: Privacy is also for sale. On a nearby meadow, the piece of land you cannot enter and no one can see from the road, are the palaces.
Tailor-made rooms and number 1 among accommodations in Tomorrowland. The place is absolutely synonymous with privacy. Private chef, private jet, private butler, it’s all part of it. Dom Perignon at breakfast or floral wallpaper with pink sheets, a finger touch is enough. Accommodation here starts at 15,000 per swim, but goes well beyond that as well. About 80 people stay here, invisible to anyone there.
