Drones Will Take Festival Production to the Next Level


DroneWe have become pretty spoiled in the dance music world. The level of show production that we have become accustomed to seeing is mindboggling. From stages 400 feet long and 200 feet high, to coordinated fireworks and lasers to blasts of CO2 and confetti we have seen it all. What is the next frontier in production? Well it might just come from drones.

2015 was a pioneering year for consumer drone technology, and as 2016 progresses on the curious and creative outreach of drones is looking nothing short of amazing. Intel put together a technology demo demonstrating a coordinated light show that is made through a swarm of LED-covered drones. We can only imagine the insanity that will ensue when this is added to a festival stage production. Check out the whole demo below.
