Tomorrowland 2019 is officially in the books, and for the most part everyone behaved themselves.
A few unlucky punters were found breaking a few rules in Boom, Belgium, from smuggling and dealing drugs to trespassing.
After two massive weekends, the numbers are officially in and have been reported by Het Nieuwsblad and the Brussels Times:
- 61 drug dealers were caught, as were 460 drug users. Users were given an on the spot fine of NZ$127 for soft drugs and NZ$252 for hard drugs.
- 55 of the dealers have been summoned for court sessions taking place later this year.
- Six dealers were arrested and brought before an investigating judge.
- 2510 ecstasy pills were confiscated along with 427 grams of cocaine, 848 grams of MDMA, 25 grams of cannabis, 46 grams of hash, 411 grams of ketamine, 57 millilitres of GHB, 135 speed pills and 50 doses of LSD. 638 fake pills and 115 grams of fake powder were also confiscated.
- 66 attempted fence jumpers were detained, as were nine punters who were publicly drunk and five people who were reportedly 'causing a nuisance'.
- 300 mobile phones were reported as stolen.
- Three reports of sexual assault were made and one rape attempt was reported.
While the numbers seem pretty high at face value, they were pretty much on par for the last two years, with a decrease in theft recorded for 2019.
If you weren't able to make it to Belgium, you can catch the streams of the best sets here.
