EXCLUSIVE: Martin Garrix to play Dubai New Year



Martin Garrix, one of the world’s most in demand DJs, is set to play at Meydan for New Year, ShortList can exclusively confirm. The Dutch DJ and producer will light up the skyline with a gig dubbed ‘Martin Garrix Dance Eve’ for 10,000 people at Meydan Racecourse – giving you a stunning backdrop of the fireworks at Burj Khalifa.

Dodging the usual New Year traffic blackspots, the event has 8,000 parking spaces. What’s more, Meydan will host a food and drinks village for the event, so people can recharge their batteries throughout the party, which kicks off at 6pm and lasts until 3am.

Garrix is best known for his debut single “Animals”, which was 2013’s sound of the summer, reaching number one in the UK and Belgium, and going double platinum in the US. But far from being his biggest achievement, this only served as a springboard for the young producer. Under the guidance of Spinnin’ Records, who have launched many successful EDM careers, the 19-year-old has a string of accolades to his name. As one of the youngest influencers on the electronic scene, he was in Billboard’s prestigious ’21 under 21’, as well as Forbes’ ’30 under 30’. Although Garrix and Spinnin’ Records have recently parted ways, his reputation is now big enough to give him his pick of labels.
