We have seen over the past week how Tomorrowland has hinted that something is going on. Their profile pictures on social media changed to black and the rumors began. What did it mean? Was it a gesture to the deceased former partner of the company? Other thoughts began when the saw that the profile pictures at the Instagram accounts of the members of Swedish House Mafia was black. Was there a possible hint that they would play at the festival?
Then there were those who took it a step further and found that in the code of the black profile picture there was this text:
<body style = "background: # 000">
<! - Light travels faster than sound - 299 792 458 m / s ->
If you have paid extra attention to the 2019 edition, you’ve noticed several cryptic texts and pictures at the mainstage, like the book "Pyramids from Space". Some say that the speed of light and the coordinates of the pyramids are the same, which again people thought might be a clue to the theme.
On Wednesday, Tomorrowland's official website changed from completely black to a picture with a light shine.
The website's URL got these sign: https://tglnahqgaxmgysb3yxzligfuzcbhihbhcnrpy2xl.tomorrowland.com/
The message in the source code has changed to this, according to Tomorrowland fans:
« Caelis 103.866986 - 13.412469 » The coordinates of Angkor Wat in Cambodia. » Caelum /ˈsiːləm/ is a faint constellation in the southern sky, introduced in the 1750s by Nicolas Louis de Lacaille and counted among the 88 modern constellations. Its name means “chisel” in Latin, and it was formerly known as Caelum Scalptorium.
They have also hinted about places like Helios, Stonehenge, Nazca lines, Machu Picchu, Easter Island or Mohenjo-Daro. All those places have geographical links, concern ancient civilizations and are related to astronomy.
The picture shows the star signs with, the moon's cycle and degrees. Due to this moving light, people began to talk about what it looks like to be a certain countdown and that the light reaches the middle of Thursday 11:00. This is the day the full moon for December appears. December is the month when winter truly begins in most of the Northern Hemisphere. Most of the ancient Full Moon names are related to the low temperatures and darkness of December, and today is that day, the day of the Cold Moon.
What would happen, however, nobody could quite know yet. Some guessed that pre-registration would open, some thought the theme would be revealed. The previous concerns about the former owner's departure or the publication of Swedish House Mafia did not seem to exist in the mind anymore. By contrast, artists like Lost Frequencies and Calvin Harris have also recently uploaded pictures of themselves in front of the pyramids. Coincidence?
So, what happened at 11:00?
Tomorrowland revealed the theme of 2020 - but it was not the expected.
"An unexpected darkness fell over the People of Tomorrow. Today, the moment has come to introduce light into our world: The Reflection of Love."
