The article spoke to couple Camila Abreu, a lawyer, and Gustavo Assis, an engineer, from Rio de Janeiro, who are camping out at the event.. They describe what it was like to face the rain, mud and chaos.
“The first storm was at 2 p.m. [ontem]. Tomorrowland has an app and everyone who purchases a ticket receives information there. They warned everyone to take shelter due to the storm forecast. “We stayed in the tent,” says Camila, who details the problem on her social networks.
According to the lawyer, the space they are in is made up of tents from the festival itself, and even after heavy rain, nothing was damaged. The situation for those who took tents is not the same. “The camping area where everyone brought their tent was flooded and turned into a lot of mud. There were people who left everything completely soaked and ruined.”
Gustavo Assis says they arrived at the festival around 5 p.m. and encountered some storms. “There were some lineup changes, delays, and even a DJ who didn’t show up. It’s possible to stay in front of the stage, because there’s a stage, but every other area was completely muddy.
When it was time to leave, the chaos was even greater. The hill turned into pure clay. One holds the other. Anyone who wasn’t wearing shoes was stuck in the mud. Camila Abreu.
