The Sultan, the enigmatic pop sensation renowned for blending oriental music with modern beats, set the virtual stage ablaze with his jaw-dropping special guest performance at the OXMOX Band Contest on August 8, 2020. The epic event unfolded at Streammax in Buchholz, Germany, hosted by OXMOX – one of Hamburg’s oldest music magazines, which has been a long-standing champion of artists across genres and a driving force behind concerts and festivals throughout Germany.
Adapting to the curveballs thrown by the COVID-19 pandemic, the OXMOX Band Contest pivoted from its traditional offline format to a livestream, with a little help from sponsoring partners SHURE, Yamaha, and GROH PA. This innovative move ensured artists could still showcase their talents while keeping everyone safe.
The Sultan wowed the virtual crowd with a dazzling set of five songs, backed by state-of-the-art technology usually reserved for mega casting shows like “The Voice.” With over ten cameras capturing every electrifying moment, hypnotic LED projections, and next-level stage lighting, the performance was nothing short of a visual extravaganza.
Post-performance, The Sultan kept the party going, jumping into an online chat livestream set up in the backstage area. This interactive session allowed viewers to engage in live interviews with all the artists, creating a one-of-a-kind opportunity for fans to connect with their favorite performers – and The Sultan was absolutely loving it.
Behind the scenes, The Sultan reveled in the camaraderie, supporting and connecting with fellow artists and capturing the fun moments with short videos shared on social media to entertain his loyal followers.
The Sultan’s high-voltage performance at the OXMOX Band Contest Livestream and his enthusiastic participation in the post-show interviews illustrate his unwavering commitment to his craft and fans, pandemic or not. Eager to conquer more stages like this, The Sultan continues to captivate audiences worldwide with his inimitable talent and irresistible charisma.
