Martin Garrix announces ADE headline show at Heineken Music Hall
Event takes place at one of Amsterdam’s biggest venues on October 15
Part of the legendary Amsterdam Dance Event festival schedule
There’s no bigger date in the discerning clubber’s diary than the legendary Amsterdam Dance Event, and no bigger venue during the festival than the gargantuan Heineken Music Hall. On October 15 this year, Martin Garrix will headline the venue for his own very special ADE party.
Garrix’s platinum-selling breakthrough hit ‘Animals’ has now amassed a staggering 700 million plays across Spotify and YouTube alone, making it one of the biggest hits of recent years and catapulting him into the major leagues. Rising to #4 in the DJ Mag Top 100 last year and featuring in both Billboard’s ’21 Under 21′ and Forbes’ ’30 Under 30′ lists, he has rapidly become one of the hottest properties in music. His co-production with Avicii ‘Waiting For Love’ has already clocked up 45 million plays in under two months, with a much-talked about 360-degree video receiving huge hype online.
Garrix’s acclaimed BBC Essential Mix dropped last autumn, and he recently collaborated with megastars Ed Sheeran, David Guetta, Tiësto (‘The Only Way Is Up’) and Usher (‘Don’t Look Down’) for tracks for his forthcoming album. Clearly, he’s an artist with more than dancefloor success on his mind, and it all points to an extremely exciting future for the young Dutchman.
His Multiply parties at Ibiza’s Ushuaïa and his residency at Las Vegas’ Omnia have cemented his reputation as a talented selector, and his ADE show will be no different. The lineup will be announced in the coming weeks.
With other upcoming dates including Tomorrowland, Sziget, Don’t Let Daddy Know, Creamfields, SW4 and Lollapalooza, he’ll be on fine form by the time ADE comes around.
