KYGO – STOLE THE SHOW | STAY @ 2015 Nobel Peace Prize Concert In 360 VR Video
I have always been a big fan of electronic music, a music genera that has transformed into a 6 billion dollar industry market in the recent years. Norwegian producer Kygo is one of my all time favorite artists in the recent years, someone who display truly his own sound and originality. Kygo started playing the piano at age six, and begin producing his own music with Logic and a MIDI keyboard at 15 years old.
This 360 video features Kygo performing his hit song “Stole The Show”, featuring Parson James, as well as his performance with Maty Noyes of their new single “Stay” at the 2015 Novel Peace Prize Concert. By looking at the crowds in this 360 video, the well-suited Nobel Peace scholar audiences definitely does not seem anything like his TomorrowWorld crowds.

Kygo became the first electronic dance musician to play at the Nobel Peace Prize Concert at Telenor Arena on Dec. 11, performing alongside fellow Norwegian artists a-ha and Aurora to honor the National Dialogue Quartet from Tunisia and their work for democracy.
Kygo hit one billion streams on Spotify faster than any other musician on the planet in just little over a year. He did it without writing a song or releasing an album. Ranked by Billboard Magazine as the ‘the next EDM superstar’, Kyrre Gørvell-Dahll, a.k.a KYGO, has gone from bedroom producer to one of the most hyped electronic artists on the planet in unprecedented time.

With a hotly anticipated album scheduled for 2015, plus a new live show experienced due to be unveiled at Ultra Music Festival, this is only the beginning for this 24 year old Norwegian prodigy.

“Kygo is a Norwegian world sensation that we are looking forward to seeing at Telenor Arena in December,” says Olav Njølstad, director of the Norwegian Nobel Institute. “Considering the hit catalogue he already has produced, I’m happy that the Nobel Peace Prize Concerts new format allows each artist time for additional songs.”
