Just days after taking over Electric Zoo for three consecutive days of Labor Day Weekend mayhem, Prydz has announced he will be returning to New York for his first-ever HOLO show in the city. The progressive visionary played two nights of the NYC festival, including performances at both his Pryda Arena stage as well as an official afterparty before unveiling a teaser of HOLO New York on September 3.
Prydz has received warranted praise for his dedication to developing and incorporating boundary-pushing live production in his shows — spawning six iterations of hisEPIC show. The Swedish DJ debuted his HOLO technology in 2018 to encompass hologram visuals into a new expansive light setup. Prydz previously brought EPIC 3.0 to Madison Square Garden in September 2014.
Prydz has yet to share dates and details surrounding tickets for the NYC HOLO show.
Earlier this summer, Kygo made his highly anticipated return to NYC during Pride Month to share a new live concept called UTOPIA. The event benefitted a number of LGBTQ charities and organizations, and with performances by Kiiara, Cirque du Soleil, JHART, Danny Verde, and more, the show proved to be one of the electronic highlights of the summer. The Jacob Javits Center was buzzing with energy as Kygo and company raised more than $110,000 in donations.
Kygo also debuted his posthumous Whitney Houston hit, “Higher Love” featuring at NYC Pride 20 years after the musical icon performed at the same event. “It was an honor to be a part of it,” said Kygo, “Love is love.” See a clip from UTOPIA below.
It has been more than a year since Kygo descended upon NYC, selling out Barclays Center in May of 2018. Though for his upcoming return to the Big Apple this summer, he’s pulling out all the stops for a production unlike anything the tropical hit-maker has ever done before. Kygo will debut a new live concept, UTOPIA, on June 30 at one of New York’s largest venues, the Jacob Javits Center.
Kygo has commanded some prestigious stage moments in the past, from his performance at the Nobel Peace Prize presentation in 2015 to the Olympics closing ceremony in Rio de Janeiro, though UTOPIA looks primed to outdo them all. The event’s supporting cast includes a full orchestra, as well as performances by Cirque du Soleil, Kiiara, Jhart, Danny Verde, Leomeo, and more special guests.
Pre-sale registration is open now and tickets officially go on sale on Monday, June 10th at KygoNYC.com. Those that register for pre-sale will be entered into a drawing to win artist passes and a meet and greet with the “It Aint Me” producer ahead of the show. Best of all, the net proceeds from UTOPIA will benefit charities Stonewall Gives Back Initiative, LIFEBeat, and Trevor Project.

Being my first House of Yes and Caravan Gitane party, I was pleasantly surprised with how this past Saturday night turned out. I usually don’t stay out past 3:30am in my old age, and I was still moving at 5am. I was prepped with the fact that it’d be in a massive warehouse (awesome) with
