The Magician has been confirmed to play next month's Electric Picnic. With hits such as Sunlight and a re-mix of I Follow Rivers, the DJ will headline Heineken's new set-up at the festival.
This year the Live Your Music space will host Electric Picnic’s first-ever 360 degree lighting rig, along with CO2 cannons, over 20 DJs and MCs- all powered by the crowd.
Throughout the weekend, technology will gauge the crowd's energy by tracking noise levels, body movement and heat. Every move made by the crowd will generate energy peaks that trigger state-of-the-art visuals.
Aside from the live acts performing throughout the weekend, music fans can unlock more experiences in the Live Your Music Rooms; three exclusive areas where the crowd programs the lighting, the visuals and the atmosphere in The Club, The Music Box and In Scope.
The Club - allows festival-goers to choose the essentials of every good club experience:immense tunes, strobes, smoke and visuals.
The Music Box -visitors use hidden drum pads, synth triggers and samples to produce the soundtrack to fans’ festival experience.
In Scope - uses innovative GIF-capturing technology that captures music fans in real time and projects them onto the giant LED screens on-stage, to become part of the show.
