Celebrate light under one of nature’s most breathtaking spectacles, set to an energizing beat by DJ Champion.

One day on Mars

A “road trip” to the Red Planet Join our expedition to Mars and enjoy a thrilling immersive experience. You’ll dive into the depths of seemingly bottomless canyons and brave the violent winds that sweep across the Red Planet’s icy dunes. Set to music by Dumas, One Day on Mars will take you to a world that mankind could well visit in just a few decades in our ongoing search for life.
