After an extraordinary 2017, which brought Marshmello to the 10th place of the DJ Mag Top 100, the helmeted DJ and producer is set to make 2018 an even bigger year for him. Mello’s amazing set at Ultra Music Festival 2018 saw multiple special guests: Slushii, G-Eazy, and Yo Gotti – just to name a few. However, the guest who undoubtedly was the most unexpected and special one goes by the name Will Smith.
After playing the first lines of “Miami”, Marshmello quickly stopped the track. But it was only to start off again, but this time bringing out Will Smith on stage. The fact of witnessing an all-time classic live at Ultra made the crowd nothing but ecstatic. After this truly surprising appearance from the Prince of Bel Air the list of special guests was still long and exciting. With the party at Bayfront Park now at full throttle, it was time for some more Hip-Hop. Yo Gotti entered the stage to rap his monumental track “Rack It Up”, which the Rapper from Memphis produced together with Nicki Minaj. Directly following up on Yo Gotti´s performance, it was time for Young Gerald. Dressed in all-white G-Eazy made the crowd bounce by performing “No Limit”. Lil Uzi Vert and Southside complemented Marhsmellos guestlist, who both made an appearance to perform their collaboration with Marshmello “Mood”.
Slushii had the honor of being the only other DJ and producer to appear during Mello’s set, joining him in celebrating their collaboration “Twinbow” live on the Mainstage.
Other than having all these amazing guests live on stage, Marshmello also did not fail to deliver a stunning set. By playing fan-favorites like “Alone” or “Silence” and by adding songs like “Sweet Nothing” or “Better Off Alone” his set was definitely one of the best of this year’s edition of Ultra.
