His fear of flying is well known, hence the fact that he hasn't appeared stateside for five years, but with a new album - ‘Eric Prydz Presents Pryda’ - to promote, and the ever increasing popularity of EDM, Eric Prydz is braving the air to greet his US fans.
IDENTITY heads out to major amphitheaters in fifteen cities throughout July and August, bringing spectacular production and a travelling circus of big name guest DJs including German trance king Paul Van Dyk, young French wunderkind Madeon, whose 'Pop Culture' mash-up has had almost 12 million views on YouTube, and complextro pioneer Wolfgang Gartner.
Each party kicks off in the afternoon, gradually building the festival vibe as it heads into the night, and will be focused on each venue’s central amphitheater stage.
Check for exclusive playlists on Rdio to help you warm up for each event. With TIGI Bedhead and LifeStyles Condoms amongst the sponsors, it sounds like, one way or another, satisfaction is guaranteed.
