Stormzy EE 5G Launch


Just looking back to a very cool Live event that I had the opportunity to be a part of and wanted to share on this Blog. My good friends at Formidable Media Live streamed the launch of 5G for EE and I got the opportunity to film Stormzy from a boat on the Thames infront of Tower Bridge in London. The video was originally Live streamed and a complete surprise to the passing public, below is a highlights video edited later. Check it out:

Fans in attendance and those tuning in online saw history in the making as the Glastonbury 2019 headliner’s performance became the first event of its kind to be live streamed over EE’s new 5G network, which was hosted by Radio DJ, Clara Amfo.

Using the latest 5G and remote production technology, EE broadcast the event on Facebook, Twitter & YouTube to thousands of fans across the UK.

To accompany the show, a 5G-powered performance was created in collaboration with Stormzy to celebrate the six cities that EE has connected with 5G. Over 200 state-of-the-art LED lights were affixed to the stage, with beams of light projected 1,000ft in front of the Tower Bridge. The 5G-powered display, which was connected via EE’s 5G network, supported the powerful lyrics and music of Stomzy’s bespoke set.

Fans in each of the other five launch cities were treated to the best seat in the house via a 360-degree VR experience at stores in Cardiff, Edinburgh, Belfast, Birmingham and Manchester. Guests attending the in-store events were invited to use VR headsets to watch the performance in 360 degrees from the front row, just metres away from where Stormzy was performing on the floating stage in London.

Stormzy kept the crowd rapt with this one-off show, set against the iconic backdrop of London’s Tower Bridge. First things first he set the evening’s tone, rising up on stage as night fell to an overwhelming ovation from the buoyant crowd, which included competition winners from across the UK.

I was also brought in on the event to film the after-party on the boat which was a great experience and a really exciting atmosphere. Looking forward to doing more live streaming events in future.
