Alan Walker’s “Walkerverse” was an immersive, energetic, and vibrant experience! The visual lighting and stage production combined with the incredible amounts of lasers, pyro, co2 cannons, and confetti gives an idea of exactly what it was like to be in the crowd and the feeling you got being there in attendance. Alan Walker not only has a way of producing amazing electronic music, but with so much visual production happening throughout his entire set, Alan Walker is able to create visual storytelling behind all his songs. With so much going on musical and visually, it makes it easy to focus on the music and not the globally acclaimed person behind his signature black mask and hood. Joined by Au/RA (@heyitsau_ra) on stage, these two put on full display what makes them such a strong and successful touring act. Rarely have i seen two artists who are so complementary and perfect for each other. These two absolutely lit up Mission Ballroom!
Right from the very beginning, this show set a certain tone and energy. With the very first artist @▪️220 KID▪️ to take the stage, performing his very first show in America to kick things off! With so many people showing up early to get into the venue first to try and get as close as they could to see Alan Walker, there was a pretty sizable crowd and energy building up already. The crowd size and energy from the very second the doors opened made for a one- of- a- kind first experience for this UK artist! Not only was the crowd size relatively big for a newer artist and an opener, but the energy in the venue was above average from the very beginning.
Next up was the extremely high-energy duo from @Telykast. As soon as these guys began their set, the energy level absolutely exploded throughout the venue. These two come alive on stage and you begin to feel the crowd feeding off their energy. There was rarely a single moment where these guys weren’t smiling or laughing and jumping up and down higher than anyone else in the venue. @Telykast is a great example of why getting to shows early can be such a great way to discover new talent and artists.
One of the most captivating artists of the entire evening was @Blossum.dj. With her bubbly personality and pink hair, her smile and style makes her stand out and you would not expect her to drop a beat as hard as she does! There is such a positive energy she creates, it makes for an experience you can’t help but walk away from in a better mood. If you were in the crowd and you weren’t smiling and jumping up and down by this point in the night, you might need to go get your pulse checked. The pink lighting and visuals combined with her bright pink hair, make this female DJ stand out in a line up of male artists.
