The AIR 2015 event will be the first aerial entertainment show of its kind to rely on drone technology
The world’s first drone circus is to be held in the Netherlands, where aerial robots equipped with lasers and projectors will spin in dizzying dances across the Amsterdam Arena.
The AIR 2015 show is scheduled to take place this year with hundreds of drones lined up to fill the venue. The event is being developed in conjunction with the Royal Netherlands Air Force, although a date has not yet been set.
“In this high energy and explosive show, drones will take centre stage to bring a collaboration and fusion of music, video, projections and special effects. AIR allows you to experience a variety of ballet and battles, races and lasers, circus, illusions and most of all magic from hundreds of drones,” said the event’s promoter Fjuze in a statement on the site announcing the AIR2015 show.
Fjuze is not the first to the idea of using drones as a display team. Disney is working on replacing its more traditional means of live entertainment such as giant puppets and fireworks with drone displays, including a mesh of drones covered in lights simulating an aerial display.
