Fulton County Considering an Extension of Alcohol Serving Hours for TomorrowWorld Festival

In just over a week, thousands of electronic dance music (EDM) fans will descend upon Bouckaert's Farm in Chattahoochee Hills for the inaugural TomorrowWorld festival.

An estimated 150,000 people, including 30,000 on-site campers, are expected to flock to the event between 26 September and 29 September.

As with any major event, alcohol will be served, but not before approval is given by the Fulton County Board of Commissioners.

The Fulton County Commission is considering a special event temporary alcoholic beverage permit for TomorrowWorld. The permit allows beer, wine, and liquor to be sold at Bouckaert's Farm during the festival. In addition, TomorrowWorld organizers are asking the Fulton County Commission to extend alcohol serving hours.

According to the application, alcohol will be served between the hours of 12PM and 1AM the first three days of the festival. On Sunday, 29 September, alcohol will be sold between 12:30PM and 12AM.

The Fulton County Police Department, which recommended county commissioners approve the special event temporary alcoholic beverage permit for TomorrowWorld, is expected to provide security at the event alongside private security guards.

The Fulton County Commission will vote on the TomorrowWorld special event temporary alcoholic beverage permit Wednesday, 18 September.
