He also added to his set list fan-favourites to create a loud atmosphere such as Drake’s “Hotline Bling”, Disclosure’s “Latch” & Major Lazer’s “Lean On”.
The set started off with an instrumental intro of “Tremor”, subsequently followed by many more of Martin Garrix’ track’s such as “Helicopter”, “Dragon” and “Don’t Look Down” to name a few. Overall, clearly showing his versatility as a producer by being able to play so many of his own tracks. Towards the end of the set, he played a few of his tracks from his new record label, STMPD records. These include “Oops” and “Now That I’ve Found You”.
The last track of the night was his new collaboration with vocalist Bebe Rexha “Name of Love”. This showed off a praised and fresher Martin Garrix sound & style and was topped off with a massive fireworks show.
