A Look At The Making Of Krewella’s Volcano

Besides the music, one of the best things at an EDM concert is that you can count on a fantastic light show. Krewella has taken its live set to the next level with its superstructure dubbed “the volcano,” featuring the first use of “reflection mapping” technology to date.

Krewella is bringing the 30 foot by 18 foot volcano on its headline tour in support of its debut studio album, Get Wet. The trek kicked off last week in Austin and includes more than 50 stops before wrapping in Chicago Nov. 16.

Created by V Squared Labs, the volcano features reflection mapped crystal structures that are equipped with LED video and/or LED tape.  

“My team at V Squared Labs and I are always pushing the envelope with existing technology to generate new forms of experiential visual art,” V Squared Labs founder Vello Virkhaus said. “The Volcano is our next experimental design integrating lighting, reflection mapping and sculptural form. We are very excited to bring the audience along on this amazing musical and visual journey.”
