DJ Eric Prydz from Sweden can compose a hit song, release a music/workout video that gets 40 million views, and be named the world’s 46th greatest DJ by DJ Magazine. But what he can not do is bring himself to board a plane.
Some may remember an incident in August 2008 when a panic attack at the airport forced promoters to cancel his world tour through Australia, New Zealand and Malta. Since then he has been working out of the UK.
House fans of the world, or at least in North America, can celebrate however. He has been booked to headline the cross country Identity Festival taking place this summer. Other major acts will include Wolfgang Gartner, Hardwell, Madeon, Excision, Porter Robinson, Nero and Paul van Dyk.
Eric Prdz’s three disc compilation Eric Prdyz Presents will be coming out just before the tour starts. It features some unreleased tracks and his most popular songs.
Heights can be scary. It only takes one crash for a plane trip to go horribly wrong. But he probably has those chill pills. Find out when he is going to to be in your town here: http://idfestival.com/SHARE
