A massive experimental effort will be devoted in the coming years to the physics of QCD at high energy density and/or high baryon density. Understanding this physics, especially out of equilibrium, is an important theoretical challenge. I will discuss how holography can help us address this challenge. Topics covered will include the far-from-equilibrium dynamics near the QCD critical point, quark matter crystals and colour superconducting phases. No prior knowledge beyond a physics undergrad degree required.
