CAN 2019, Cairo Egypt
Partnership with LEAP Creative Studio and BLINK Experience
A first in the world of ceremonies, we installed three pyramids on the field of play, the highest being more than 50 feet tall. These elements and the entire field of play were accompanied by a full video mapping setup to project amazing content and create a complete and elaborate scene. We present the history of Egypt and also how the country is actively combining tradition with modernity. More than 500 performers and technicians were part of this incredible experience for which we were named “Best Ceremony of the Year 2019” by the spectators.

From the first brainstorming meeting of this collaboration, Julien’s proposal to Imagine Dragons was to create a unique setup of 40 movable flames all over the soccer field. Perfectly synchronized with the drumming section of their famous hit RADIOACTIVE, this sequence created a viral success on social media. What better way than fire to showcase Dragons and keep a high-energy performance.
