Behind the Scenes of Eric Prydz EPIC 5.0 Visual Masterpiece

Often, we forget what stage production can truly do to enhance a concert experience. While it may not be as important as the music playing, it still can amplify the enjoyment of the concert or festival goer. Many DJ’s take it upon themselves to revolutionize the stage production game. Whether it’s Excision’s Paradox stage or Deadmau5’s Cube 2.1, it makes seeing them live well worth the journey. However, some take it a step further.

When it comes to stage production, Eric Prydz is next level.

The Swedish DJ, who made waves with his debut studio album, Opus, knows how to put on a damn good show. His past tours have been legendary, but this one takes it up yet another notch. Dubbed, “EPIC 5.0”, Prydz’s audiovisual experience is like no other. It breaks boundaries, stresses originality, and is something you cannot miss. Stretching over 20 meters wide, Eric Prydz uses holograms to wow crowds around the globe. Peep his promotional video for it below:

Adding to this amazing audiovisual feat, Prydz plays his entire set live. This means everyone on his visual team has to be ready to change things up according to how Prydz selects his music. Can you say, “wow” one more time?

This once in a lifetime experience also takes approximately five days to pack up and nine days to construct, limiting the tour dates and locations. However, you’ll still be able to catch the icon in action, just without the stage. Take a look at his summer schedule by following this link.
