In 2016 DJ Hardwell’s ‘Revealed Tour’ landed at the Ultra Music Festival in Miami. Against the backdrop of the Atlantic Ocean his performance and pulsing dance beats energized the crowd. But what was even more amazing was the virtual audience you couldn’t see. More than 20,000 fans partied in 35 countries around the globe. They immersed themselves in the energy of the music as if they were actually there.

Hanging out with the DJ
Hardwell’s performance marked the first- ever 360° Virtual Reality broadcast of a DJ. Streaming live from sweltering Miami, but available even in an air-conditioned living room thousands of miles away, the VR live stream let anyone roam freely through the dancing crowd, and even stand next to Hardwell in the DJ booth. Powered by Leaseweb and one of the world’s best DJs, VR entered a new era.
"I think the fans don’t even realize how important Leaseweb is to them. Because of Leaseweb we can provide them with all the live streams worldwide, they have the podcast every week, they can download it at full speed and it’s really important to have a really good provider behind you to give your fans everything they expect from you."
