This guide serves as a health and economic response to the crisises the virus is causing. Regardless of the theories going around the internet regarding origin of the virus or possible intent, the virus is real and is affecting people. In solidarity with the Tomorrowland-team there is a chance to #SaveTheSummer (of 2020 music festivals) by minding the government advice on social distancing. We should give it a try. And while staying home, we encourage our community to peruse these resources either for your own benefit or to help others.
