- Well-known DJ Eric Prydz will make his Indian debut
- This will take place at the popular music festival VH1 Supersonic
Creating waves worldwide with his DJing skills coupled with breathtaking show production, Swedish house music legend Eric Prydz is set to make his India debut with a headlining act at VH1 Supersonic in Pune next year.
Known for his mixing skills and mashups, Prydz is a respected figure in the EDM fraternity for the experience he brings for the audience with the spectacular productions of lasers and visuals in show called Epic, which will be entering into its fifth edition in 2017.
The announcement comes after the festival organisers left the dance music enthusiasts in frenzy with a sold out flash sale, offering the three-day festival pass at a mere Rs 1500. While the previous four editions saw 3D visuals and dynamic hologram set ups among others in productions, Prdyz has something amazing in store for Epic 5.0 which he revealed in an interview in October.
"We are currently working crazy on Epic 5.0. I can't give that much more information away. We're taking it super serious now. Whenever the show comes out, it's going to blow your head off," he had said. As a solo artist, the DJ-producer has headlined, and sold out some of the world's most renowned venues including Madison Square Garden, Brixton Academy and Alexandra Palace. He has earned multiple Grammy nominations and topped charts with his alter-ego monikers Pryda and Cirez D.
Pyrdz' performance at Supersonic will not only be his first in India but will also mark his debut in Asia. He is touring India in the backdrop of the release of his much-awaited debut album 'Opus'. The LP was in the making for years and Prydz had been working toward his masterpiece and teasing unwitting audiences with cuts from the album along the way. "Eric's been an artist we've been trying to bring to India forever. I've heard him several times in different continents and I can truly say, there is nobody like him in all of electronic music's landscape. Bringing him to India for Vh1 Supersonic is a dream come true," festival curator Nikhil Chinapa said.
Starting at such a high note, the festival is yet to announce its complete lineup for the February 2017 edition. The Phase 1 tickets are now available at a starting price of Rs 2,250.
