People of Tomorrowworld: the T.O.E. Family Gathering within the Gathering

Tomorrowworld kicks off officially today when the first DJs take the assorted stages across Bouckaert's Farm starting at high noon. But for thousands of campers, the shenanigans began Thursday night in Dreamville.

Dreamville is the Tomorrowworld campground, and the festival welcomes the Dreamvillians (we know, that is not a real word) with a party called The Gathering. Another party, however, was a more intimate family get-together.

Tacos Over Everything, better known as T.O.E., organized a taco party inside Dreamville.

T.O.E. is a Facebook group centered around not just Tomorrowworld or electronic dance music, but also camaraderie and good-fellowship.

Their members include people from Tennessee, Georgia, Florida, the Carolinas, California, and all places in between.

Planning for the T.O.E. taco party started online, with individuals volunteering to bring the supplies. Several pounds of meat, sour cream, lettuce, shredded cheese, and cilantro were brought into Dreamville along with the camping gear. Then, at 6PM, a couple cans of propane were ignited under two skillets, and the party was on.

Everyone ate. In fact, there was enough food left over to feed complete strangers who just showed up to see what the commotion was all about.

No one was turned away.

And that is just one story about the people of Tomorrowworld who make every moment of the festival magical.
