Eric Prydz

Relive Eric Prydz’s mesmerizing Tomorrowland performance





Just a few hours before he was due to take to the main stage at arguably dance music’s biggest annual event in Boom, Belgium, Eric Prydz was stuck on a train in France, understandably stressing about whether or not he would make it on time. Fortunately for fans, he did eventually make – albeit 15 minutes later than originally planned, which resulted in an impromptu set from Afrojack to keep fans entertained as they waited. But when he did show up, he put on an unforgettable performance to make up for lost time.

Kicking things off with a special Tomorrowland Intro ID, he later went on to drop tracks from his other aliases including Pryda and Cirez D, which understandably send crowds into a frenzy. As the set neared its shorter than expected conclusion, the Swedish maestro dropped crowd favourite ‘Generate’, before the opening note of ‘Opus’ echoed out, to a huge cheer. A track that will forever be immortalised as one of the greatest dance productions ever made, the impossibility most will face is to ever locate a such an explosive drop after an almost never-ending progression. The perfect end to an ever-impressive Prydz performance, he also performed later that night on the Drumcode stage, showcasing his techno side as Cirez D.
