Superstar Alok Unveils His Stunning New Stage Concept At Untold Festival in Romania, Designed by Lightning Guru Alexander Hesse
Brazilian DJ and producer Alok, currently holding the #4 spot on DJ Mag’s prestigious Top 100 DJs chart, took the stage at Untold Festival in Romania this past weekend to debut his stunning new live performance concept. Created in partnership with lighting, 3D animation, and video maestro Alexander Hesse, who was the mastermind behind Swedish House Mafia’s most recent tour production, Alok’s new show left jaws on the ground with its cutting-edge fusion of multidimensional visual storytelling. Most notable during his high-energy set was the presence of a new DJ booth, which was crafted of two massive hands.
Always one for symbolism, the hands represented the universe’s energy channeling through the stage so Alok can pass it along to his audience, all live while he’s performing. The energetic transfer was more than successful, with Alok’s signature sound accompanied by larger-than-life, colorful, and emotive production for a truly immersive experience that just took his live shows to the next level and then some. Check out photos and videos from Untold here to see yourself what we are talking about, and keep an eye out for tour dates to see Alok live.
“Visual experiences at shows are as equally important as music these days. While DJs always channel their energy only through music, I wanted to find a way to take my performances to the next level and communicate better with the crowd using light, video, and 3D animation. Alex is one of the best specialists out there, so we sat down and came up with a concept of an entire show that also includes a new DJ booth, made of two big hands representing the energy of the Universe channeling through the stage, which I can pass along to the audience in front of me. The result was out of this world, so I’m already confident I’ll soon collaborate with more visual art experts.” – Alok
With a strong resume full of remixes and collaborations with artists such as The Rolling Stones to Zara Larsson, from Jason Derulo to Tove Lo, and more, Brazilian Alok has gained an immense international following and is currently having his global breakout moment.

In 2021, he was named the 4th Best DJ in the world, according to the prestigious DJ Mag Top 100 DJ Poll. In 2019, Alok was nominated for the International Dance Music Awards for his hit remix of the Meduza single “Piece of Your Heart,” and he also worked with global pop sensation Dua Lipa for the official remix of her hit single “Physical.” Recently he also collaborated with Grammy-award pop sensation John Legend on “In My Mind” and with renegade vocalist John Martin on “Wherever You Go” and lended his talents to remix Ed Sheeran’s “Shivers.” The sky is the limit for the Brazilian superstar.
