Last weekend's Tomorrowland livestream was a smash hit unlike anything ever done before, revolutionising the digital festival space, the 3D technology along with the DJ performances made for something truly unforgettable, We Rave You writes about the Belgium dance music fest. Over a massive one million people bought tickets, for each DJ to record their set they were placed in a studio behind a green screen and managed to perform just like they would to a real crowd, to get all of the different angles up to 38 cameras were used. The cream at the top was the new formula for compensating artists - based on ticket sales and views of their individual sets. Bigger artists got a flat fee as well, Billboard reports (behind a paywall).
