For dance music fans who’ve heard of Cercle, the production company is known to record artists and DJs delivering rare sets around the world. The most recent episode featured ZHU in the Japanese Alps giving a one-of-a-kind set to a select lucky few fans. It seems that Coke Studios Sessions is the mainstream equivalent. They’ve streamed 100 concerts over 60 days, partnering with Katy Perry, DJ Khaled, Bebe Rexha, Miguel, the cast of Hamilton, and Steve Aoki. Now they’ve partnered with EDM superstar Kaskade to deliver an exclusive two-and-a-half-hour set on the famous skywalk overlooking the Grand Canyon.

Grand Canyon West’s The Skywalk is a horseshoe-like platform that extends seventy feet over the edge of one of the natural wonders of the world: the Grand Canyon. The tourist attraction in northwestern Arizona is not for the faint of heart as it has a see-through glass floor and towers an astounding 4,000 feet above the Grand Canyon floor. The attraction is located about two hours from Laughlin, Nevada and more than four hours from downtown Phoenix. However, the Skywalk is currently closed to the public because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The event took place last Thursday evening when Kaskade became the first DJ to perform a sunset set with lights and aerial camera shots, all live-streamed along a horseshoe-shaped see-through bridge 70 feet beyond the Grand Canyon’s edge. Kaskade’s performance was live-streamed on YouTube and through The Be App, a new live-streaming app for artists.
Thankfully, fans have managed to record the performance and upload it to YouTube in increments. Yet, given the corporate culture of Coca Cola, the set is being flagged left and right before being taken down due to copyright infringement. So fans would do well to watch the recording as soon as possible.
