Tomorrowland’s summertime extravaganza is one of the hottest, must-see events on the calendar. Thanks to Budweiser, Shanghai’s EDM music lovers can experience the thrills of the Belgian festival without the hassle of making their way to Brussels as a live screening, and other Tomorrowland themed events, are coming to Found 158 next weekend.

Tomorrowland attracted 400,000 visitors in 2017, and the festival now stretches over two weekends. Combining the energetic and heart-racing elements of a theme park and the outdoorsy nod to mother nature, the festival is modernity personified; and now that is coming to Shanghai with the live-screening and other themed events.

The exuberant and spectacular feel of the festival is what makes it one of, if not the, most iconic music event of the summer, and the festival’s emphasis on providing a well-calculated lifestyle today to ensure that tomorrow is just as sustainable. The American lager giant has enjoyed years upon years of spectacular growth, so it was only right that the world’s second-best selling lager teamed up with the greatest EDM festival to give festival-goers a beechwood-inspired twist on the hottest summertime showing.

Now, Tomorrowland makes the trip over to the Far East thanks to Budweiser’s exclusive China-based showings; Shanghai sees a taste of Belgium head to Found 158. This unique event will put an Oriental twist on the festival first held in 2005; combining neon pattern body paints, bold temporary tattoo designs and a dramatic stilts performance that will amaze party-goers.

From July 26 to July 28, Found 158 will transform from its usual self into the home of a stage dedicated to the best electronic dance music and other themed touches, such as local DJs and, well, quite a lot of America’s favourite beer.
