Known as one of the most in demand artists to see live, Canadian DJ deadmau5 has always managed to come up with revolutionary ideas in all aspects of his career, whether it be within his music or touring. One of his most notable creations is the cube, a stage design which deadmau5 – real name Joel Zimmerman – created for his live shows. Debuting the very first version of the cube at Coachella back in 2010, the stage design has massively grown.
The follow up to the first cube was cube 2.1 arriving in 2017 on the ‘lots of shows in a row’ tour which boasted a new and improved design with more features than the first, with 42 panels across three sides with each side costing around $700,000.
Outdoing himself, deadmau5 began work on the third version, cube 3.0 in collaboration with Chris Schroeder of Chris Schroeder Productions and technical design by Collyns Stenzel. Later debuting this at the 2019 edition of Miami’s Ultra Music Festival, it was announced that the cube 3.0 would be going on a North American tour. Recently, new additional dates were announced for shows in Los Angeles, Detroit, Boston, Philadelphia and Brooklyn.
