New York’s biggest dance music venue is getting a fresh look for a stacked summer season.

Avant Gardner's founder, owner and Chief Creative Officer, Billy Bildstein spearheaded an ambitious redesign of the already-stunning Brooklyn Mirage.

“The Mirage was always meant to adapt and change, to appear and to disappear. Every new generation of the Mirage innovates with new custom methods of building modular structures, as well as with non-traditional use of the latest multi-media and entertainment technology available,” Bildstein said. “This year we're introducing the third generation of our Mirage concept and while it will bring a lot of improvements and upgrades, and will set new standards on many levels, we found a way to keep the soul of the last generations alive." 

Bildstein enlisted multimedia studio Conveyor to build one of the world’s largest outdoor video walls, a dazzling structure stretching 200 feet in length and soaring 30 feet high. Technical specs featuring over 1000 LED panels at 15K ultra-wide resolution enable film grade visuals while a custom-built media server empowers visual artists to create real-time generated visuals in hyper-realistic environments.
