Last September, TomorrowWorld made its USA introduction by hosting a 3-day festival in South Fulton County in Atlanta, Georgia. Over 120,000 electronic music fans from across the world came together to see over 300 DJs perform on 500 acres of land.

According to local Georgia blog Georgia Unfiltered, TomorrowWorld garnered $85.1 million for Georgia in 2013. Here are the stats, broken down:

– Atlanta saw the greatest impact, receiving a total of $70 million. This is the same amount generated for the city from the 2013 NCAA Final Four Championship games.
– An estimated $4.3 million in tax revenues went to the state and local governments as a result of event-related spending for TomorrowWorld 2013. This is the equivalent of hiring 80 full-time school teachers for one year at a salary of $53,000.
– Labour income for workers in the Atlanta and the state of Georgia increased by $34 million thanks to the direct and indirect work needed to support the event and the visitors.
– TomorrowWorld employed the equivalent of 749 annual full time jobs.

Crafted after Belgium’s infamous Tomorrowland setup, Tomorrowworld was a behemoth of a production from every angle, and it was pulled off with near perfection. With numbers like these, it’s easy to see the positive impact music, and specifically in this case, the EDM community, can have on local economies.
