Nowadays one is difficult to be surprised when it comes to the popularity of electronic music around the world. But you know it has gotten big when it finds its spot in major event such as the Olympic Games in 2004, or more recently – The 2016 UEFA European Championship.
Undoubtedly the most popular French DJ – David Guetta, had the honor to be responsible for this year’s edition anthem – “This One is For You”, which he performed during the opening ceremony.
Just a day before the big final, the 2011 #1 DJ in the world announced that an orchestral version of the track will be premiered just before the last kick off Euro 2016 whistle.
Performing alongside more than 600 dancers, performers and musicians from the Paris Fire Brigade, the French Republican Guard and the Choir of Radio France, as well as live vocals by Swedish star Zara Larsson, did not stop fans to express mixed feelings across social media.
Whether or not what we saw is something that impressed us, it is a valid justification of the importance and influence of electronic music in today’s world.
