The Record-Breaking New 360° Experience Taking Over America’s Planetariums Thrills Audiences Nationwide.

Audiences across the nation are rushing to book their seats for James Hood’s Mesmerica 360! With over 500,000 tickets sold, the show has broken box office records in over 40 North American cities — the fastest-selling fulldome/planetarium music show in history.


Delivered in stunning 360° to create a unique immersive experience suitable for families and date nights alike; Mesmerica has something for everyone. The show is designed specifically to promote deep relaxation in audiences, weaving together musical soundscapes with visually-hypnotic animated 3D art curated from artists around the world. 

The inspiration of award-winning musician and composer James Hood, the show was nominated for the Producers Guild of America’s first-ever Innovation award in 2020 and in the same year, winner of the c3: Future Vision Award from the Center of Conscious Creativity which recognises an artist’s contribution to a better future through arts and media.


James Hood says of the show’s success: 

The power of immersive music and art is like no other art form, it has the ability to create unique moods and brain states, and we’re so thrilled and honored to be able to showcase this full-dome presentation in such wonderful venues.” 


The 360° projection show offers a rich audio-visual journey and as a seated show, it makes for a hugely accessible experience for all, designed to transcend time in a relaxing environment while simultaneously engaging the senses. The lush mix of soundscape and art is a combination that has audiences coming to experience it time and again with 30% of visitors having seen the show twice or more:
