Paléo presents a digital creation at CES in Las Vegas

From 8 to 11 January 2019, Paléo Festival Nyon will unveil its innovative participatory digital project at the CES in Las Vegas. This is the first time a music festival has presented a project at one of the world's leading trade shows dedicated to technological innovation. The interface was developed in collaboration with a Zurich video game design bureau for the 2019 Festival.

An experience of collective multimedia sharing

Driven by a constant desire to innovate and surprise its Festival-goers, Paléo will unveil its creation at the beginning of January in the Pavilion organized by Présence Suisse at CES in Las Vegas. This is the first time that a music festival presents a project at one of the most important trade fairs dedicated to technological innovation in consumer electronics.

The Las Vegas event will be a unique opportunity for the Festival to exhibit and test an interactive experience that will allow spectators to be the creators of a life-size digital work. The latter will evolve in real time on the screens of the 2019 Festival. The interface was developed in collaboration with the Zurich-based video game design office Fusion Robots, representatives of a booming digital arts industry in Switzerland.

Paleo and technological innovation

Paléo is positioned as a major player on the technology market in the field of music festivals. It was one of the first to test the blockchain system on a sample of 10,000 tickets. It has also developed a specific tool for festival management and security (SEM), as well as a platform for managing video rights and interviews (Mease). Both have been successfully used for several years by other Swiss and European festivals. Paléo is delighted today to present an innovative way of using technology, serving both art and the way festival-goers experience the event.

Please note

The project can be discovered at the Swiss Pavilion, Eureka Park, Sands Expo and Convention Center, G Hall at CES in Las Vegas.

The 44th edition of the Paléo Festival Nyon will be held from 23 to 28 July 2019 and will host a Village du Monde decked out in the colours of Quebec. The line-up will be unveiled on Tuesday 26 March and tickets will go on sale at midday on Wednesday 3 April 2019.
