Swedish DJ Avicii has been touring non-stop. He just wrapped up a much talked about performance at Ultra Music Festival where he debuted his new album and DJ’d with the likes of David Guetta, Calvin Harris and Tiesto. sat down with Avicii to find out what it’s like to be on the road so much and how he keeps each set unique.

“We’re going through a lot of changes right now. We’ve been going so hard these past couple of years,” he said.

Avicii explained that one of the reasons he keeps on the road is to help even out production costs. He currently travels with a giant 3D projected head which he DJ’s from.

“The head is a big huge ordeal to travel around with. In order for that to be productive you need to really tour a lot,” he explained. “We’re focusing a lot on materials and creative stage designs. That’s what we’re figuring out right now.”

As his audience increases and he plays larger venues, his set design is something he always keeps in mind.

“It obviously means a lot especially now that the crowds are getting so much bigger,” he said. “Everything is going from nightclubs to theaters to arenas to stadiums.”

Avicii is very conscious of his increasing fan base and wants to keep his performance as memorable as possible.

“It’s just getting bigger and bigger and you have to figure out ways to keep the performance big and not take over because it’s about the music too,” he said. “It should just accompany the music in the best way possible.”
