Among the many aspects presented at Coachella 2016, the Despacio Soundsystem had to be one of the most unique and legendary offerings. For people in search of the best sound quality and environment for dance music, it just doesn't get much better.
Despacio is eight 11.5-feet-tall pillars that make up the immersive soundsystem developed by LCD Soundsystem frontman James Murphy, David and Stephen Dewaele of 2manydjs and sound engineer John Klett. In an interview with Wired UK back in 2013, David Dewaele of 2manydjs said, “with most gigs, people are turned toward the DJs looking at what you are doing. It becomes a performance. With Despacio, the sound is the star. In Manchester, people didn’t want to take pictures with the DJs, but with the stacks.”
Now a 360-video has surfaced, giving us the full scope of what Despacio was like at Coachella. Check out the video above.
