Electronic Dance Music has inspired some of the most incredible visual displays known to man. It is funny to think that only 10 years ago large stage productions were not a thing in the world of dance music. It was commonly just a DJ behind the decks and a few light displays. Of course that is a generalization – there have always been some artists thinking outside of the box in terms of their EDM visuals.

In 2007 though things became much different when Daft Punk played their Alive 2007 tour and changed the universe of EDM Visuals entirely. This forced producers to get more original with the performance as music alone was unfortunately not going to cover it anymore. Now in current day we have some of the most creative artists working as VJs for top acts, and artists are taking advantage of new technology such as 3D mapping.

We have compiled a list of the most jaw dropping EDM visuals of all time. We focused much more on the visual art and not so much stage design.
