Passes and 'glamping' spots on sale for TomorrowWorld Atlanta festival

Snag a spot in Dreamville now for the TomorrowWorld electronic music festival coming to Atlanta in September

Imagine camping out at an electronic music festival in a tent with comfortable beds covered in satin sheets, in a tent that includes electric  power and lights, and a tent that even has a butler. Welcome to Dreamville, the pop-up community created for the three-day TomorrowWorld Atlanta in September.

Event passes and passes packaged with the luxury "glamping" options go on sale online at 9 a.m. Pacific time today (March 5). Now in its third year, TomorrowWorld is scheduled Sept. 25-27 on an 8,000-acre farm in Georgia's Chattahoochee Hills.

Dreamville has it all: glam tents, salons, massage stations, a general store, clothing stores, yoga classes and more.

"You can show up and let loose and forget the real world," says spokesman Joe Silberzweig.

No headliners have been announced, but fans reserve anyway for the festival that's a mix of music, pyrotechnics, elaborate decorations and soundscapes. TomorrowWorld is adding a live music stage this year.

Last year, 160,000 people attended. Cars and RVs are banned at the woodsy site about a half-hour from Atlanta. And while a quarter of the 21-and-older crowd -- yes, it's age restricted -- stay in nearby hotels, most come to Dreamville to bond, party and enjoy.

You can bring your own tent -- $417 gets you a festival pass and five days of camping -- or you can choose from Dreamville's glamping packages. All come with passes.

The Easy Tent, for example, allows you to show up with a backpack or suitcase and nothing else. The branded tent plus sleeping bag, pillow and nightlight are included -- and you may take them home after the festival's over. It costs $649 per person.

High rollers may choose the Manor, which costs $50,000 and accommodates 12 people. (Both Manors sold out in 2014 and more are being added this year.) You get a suite with your own bathroom and shower, a tour bus, a butler, a hot tub, catered food and a barbecue zone.

Cabanas, which are the newest addition, offer more security and privacy than a tent. (The door locks.) It's a real structure with beds, satin sheets and pillows, power and lighting for $1,762 per person.

Dreamville, which takes a team of 1,000 workers about a month to construct, will host 40,000 people each night.

Maybe you want to get your hair done? Dreamville's Marketplace has a salon plus food and other services. Dreamville denizens get an added bonus of a welcome party with DJs on the Thursday night before the festival.

Three-day passes without accommodations start at $357 and single-day tickets, which will go on sale later, cost $135.

TomorrowWorld is the sister festival of TomorrowLand in Boom, Belgium in July. (It's sold out.)
