Last weekend, Eric Prydz took over the Brooklyn Navy Yard in New York City for his HOLO show concept. The demand to see the global dance innovator performing was massive. Fans pounced on this 3 day extravaganza as more than 60,000 tickets were sold over the 3 events. All 3 performance nights were organized by Teksupport, and this was the first time Eric Prydz has brought his HOLO show to New York since 2019. We went to the Saturday show but from what ravers who went on the other days, each show was unique.
The HOLO show delivered an extraordinary sensory experience with a massive LED screen, cutting-edge lighting, and intricate 3D holographic effects. From the onset of Prydz’s performance, he captivated the audience by seamlessly blending tracks from his extensive catalog into a cohesive and immersive audiovisual journey.
A highlight of the show was the mesmerizing holographic effects that transformed the stage into a breathtaking otherworldly environment. Synchronized perfectly with Prydz’s music, these visuals created a stunning experience that left the crowd in awe, with reaching hands, appearing robots, astronauts, and other life-sized figures. In addition to the visuals, the Brooklyn Navy Yard’s upgrade sound system and lights only added to the top tier production. Beyond the visuals, Prydz’s expert track selection showcased his ability to blend genres, offering a unique sound. The set ranged from uplifting progressive house anthems to dark techno tracks, taking the audience on an emotional rollercoaster. Eric also dished out songs from his Pryda alias with hit tracks such as ‘Power Drive‘, ‘Elements‘, ‘One Day‘, and ‘Allein‘. He also sprinkled in some Cirez D with ‘Evacuate‘. The dancefloor maestro ended the performance with hit track ‘Opus’, met with thunderous cheers from across the venue.
With that breathtaking conclusion, Prydz concluded the roller coaster set. The immersive nature of HOLO truly showcases Prydz’s creative prowess. Few artists worldwide can match the impact of his performance style while continuing to innovate and evolve. If you get the chance to witness HOLO, don’t miss it. It’s a performance that must be experienced firsthand to be believed.
