CHATTAHOOCHEE HILLS, Ga. -

Chattahoochee Hills is normally pretty quiet on the weekends, but that's all about to change.  Roughly 250 of the biggest names in electronic music will take the stage at the three-day TomorrowWorld festival there this weekend, and the event is expected to draw 150,000 people. 

The event got started at noon today, and it features eight different stages.  Fans from 75 different countries will travel to Georgia to be there, and that's good news for the local economy.  Organizers estimate when all is said and done, it will mean about $5 million in revenue for the area.

The event isn't just a one-time deal, either.  It will happen yearly.  This year is the first time that the festival, which originated in Belgium, is being held in the United States, and Georgia was chosen to host it out of over more than 100 locations worldwide. 

Much of the staging for the massive festival was shipped from Belgium, and will be stored here for next year.
