Tomorrowland presents a glimpse into the know-how behind its digital New Years Eve pageant
There are many live streams on New Year’s Eve – but all eyes and ears are on Orient!
The legendary festival created an unparalleled experience with 28 of the best dance musicians performing on four stages in 27 time zones. With only two days to go to the most anticipated NYE in the recent past, Tomorrowland offers a glimpse into the technology behind its digital festival.
Bring the digital venue known as Maoz You need a huge team to live, which is why Tomorrow has hired more than 200 professionals in 3D design, video production, games and special effects. Live performances, fireworks, laser shows and a realistic crowd of 950,000 virtual visitors, each with their own attributes, await you – including 65,000 virtual flags from over 193 different countries.

To make the magic happen, Tomorrowland built two large green screen studios where all artist performances were recorded, one in Belgium and one in Los Angeles. The studios had to be modified to create an environment that would accommodate the festival’s creative team – all cycloramas (infinity walls) were 6 meters or more, at least 8 meters wide and at least 8 meters deep. In addition to the 17 4K Ultra HD cameras, 152 virtual cameras were created for a total of 160 hours of footage.
