Thursday, 3 September 2020 - The first edition of Tomorrowland Around the World, the digital festival, has won the FWA of the Month (August 2020), beating distinguished competition such as Amazon and Spotify. The FWA (Favourite Website Awards) was founded in 2000 and since then has been grown into the largest online award program, showcasing cutting edge creativity and innovation in digital design and development and serving millions of creatives with inspiration and professional recognition. Every month, the FWA jury – an international team of over 300 judges – selects the best project as FWA of the Month, with previous winners from recent months including Google, Nike, Samsung and Universal Pictures. Tomorrowland Around the World, which saw stellar performances from more than 60 of the world’s most prominent artists in electronic dance music on one of the 8 different stages, has received this month’s award for its spectacular two-day digital music festival experience. A WebGL-powered 3D island enabled visitors from all around the world to join the experience on their desktops, tablets and mobile devices, focusing on stability, optimization and incorporating both numerous details and state of the art technologies for this unique experience viewed more than 1 million times over the course of the weekend.
