As soon as it was announced, we were at the front of the queue. Ever since a field in Daresbury late last summer, where Eric Prydz had rocked our world with a stand-out performance inside Creamfields’ SteelYard. This time it was going to be bigger. Better. It was going to be E.P.I.C 5.0. Supersized. Supercharged. And the bonus was it was happening on our own doorstep at Victoria Park.
We acknowledge that Prydz isn’t for everyone. If you’re the kind of person who likes dark, sweaty basements with a killer sound system and obscure, hard to I.D. music then this was obviously not the party for you. But in terms of the show – the spectacle – the bright lights, special effects, production, Prydz is untouchable. He’s in a league of his own. This was a 360o experience which brought music and technology together for a white-knuckled, adrenaline-pumping 2-hour extravaganza. The kind of show that makes Vegas seem small-fry.
