If you’ve ever been to an Eric Prydz show, you know he’s a born showman. The Platinum-selling Swede comes from an era of electronic music, where pushing the boundaries of sound and art were more synonymous to producers and DJs than radio play and private jets. Naturally, it comes as no surprise that his latest show, Eric 5.0 was not only grander than his previous but far superior. Standards we have come to expect from Prydz. The inherently experimental DJ wowed everyone at London’s Victoria Park with his immaculately produced show.
Eric Prydz at Steel Yard London:
Eric 5.0 was unveiled in Europe’s newest mega-structure, the Steel Yard designed and created especially for Creamfields the superstructure made its London debut at Victoria Park during May Bank Holiday weekend. Eric Prydz at Steel Yard London did not fail to get the crowd electrified, inspired and captivated. Known for his unique sound and technically remarkable live shows, it seems Eric Prydz is only getting started.
Six hundred laser beams, 10 million pixels of video, 20-metre-wide holograms – and one DJ. Eric Prydz is known for putting on a good show, and his latest topped even his previous efforts in both scale and impact.
EPIC 5.0, the most recent in the Swedish DJ’s “Eric Prydz in Concert” series, took place in London’s Victoria Park, drawing a crowd of 15,000 to soak up an audiovisual feast of electronic music, video and lighting effects. Holograms and lasers are a trademark of Prydz’s shows and EPIC 5.0 did not disappoint, pushing innovative effects using the latest tech. There were animations building and twisting around the stage in time to the beat, holograms of astronauts, satellites and tornadoes, and lasers radiating over the crowd in every colour and configuration. ~ WIRED U.K.
After nine years of working with Prydz, Realtime Environment Systems (RES) the technical team behind the large-scale live production were looking for an innovative approach to bring the dream to life.
