3DM: Everything You Need To Know About 3-D Concert Technology

So you’ve never heard of 3DM? Believe me when I say that you’re missing out. It’s the coolest thing to happen to electronic dance concerts since the invention of the glowstick and I’m here to tell you all about it.

What exactly is 3DM?

3DM is the use of 3-D technology to create a completely immersive experience for the audience. The purpose of this strategy is to simultaneously combine auditory stimulation with visual stimulation to allow the audience to escape into a different world. Sound terrifying? Well it’s not. Don’t fear the 3-D. Embrace it because it’s the future of the concert-going experience.

How does it work?

A 3-D concert-going experience isn’t easy to create but nothing that is this freakin’ cool ever is. The venue in use is equipped with multiple large LED screens surrounding the audience. These screens then project different lights all around and into the audience to make the crowd feel like they are not only listening to, but also experiencing the music.

Do you still have to wear the glasses?

3DM Glasses

Yes, you still have to wear the glasses but there’s good news! Remember the flimsy 3-D glasses with one red and one blue eye that never fit your head correctly? Well they aren’t those glasses. The new glasses that are typically used are polarized and plastic. This makes them not only more functional, but also more fashionable. I thought I looked amazing in the old paper glasses so I can’t imagine how awesome I’ll look in the new ones.

Where can I find a 3-D concert to attend?

3DM Music Festival

That’s a great question. Thank you for asking. One of the coolest new events is the 3DM Music Festival. This is the world’s first 3-D music festival and it’s blowing our minds. Unfortunately, this event just passed so you’re going to have to wait until next year. But if you’re like me and you’ve got serious FOMO then have no fear. Morgan Page, an electro house DJ, was one of the first to pioneer this technology and his 3-D tour is currently going on. Buy a ticket. Book a flight. Do whatever you have to do because I promise you it’s worth it.

There you have it. There’s everything you need to know. Now go forth and prosper. Find yourself a 3-D EDM concert to attend, let it blow your minds, and make me proud.
