On June 21, Florian Picasso, the famous electronic dance music artist performed an exclusive live stream set honoring his Vietnamese heritage. The performance was viewed by over 1 million people worldwide and reached over 2 million viewers, many of whom were in Vietnam.
Paying tribute to his home country, Florian teamed up with a VR company to perform the first half of his set on the river banks of the Mekong and the second half of his set in the city of Saigon. While performing, the artist received thousands of comments on the live stream marking three years since his last performance there.
In 2017, Picasso attracted 80,000 attendees on New Year’s Eve as a solo headlining artist.
“When I play in Vietnam it feels extra special and the connection I have with the crowd there is really the best on earth for me. One of my biggest regrets is to not be there more often and I want to change that from now on!“– Florian Picasso
In addition, the artist has other live streams planned, one of which will highlight his Picasso heritage and will take place at the Picasso Villa La Californie in Cannes at the end of July. More information will follow soon.
Picasso is no stage name for Florian Picasso. The internationally acclaimed DJ and producer was adopted from Vietnam into Pablo Picasso’s family by Pablo’s granddaughter, but still strongly embraces his origins. He has collaborated with artists that include: Martin Garrix, Nicky Romero, and most recently with Gashi and Ally Brook on the track, “Like You Do.” For more information on the artist, please visit his official Facebook page at the following link: Florian Picasso – Facebook Page.
