As one of Ushuaïa Ibiza‘s most iconic residencies, David Guetta‘s BIG concept draws in a huge worldwide crowd week after week. Offering some of the most star-studded lineups during the season, the weekly residency has become one of the most talked about events on the island. Last week, David Guetta returned to Ushuaïa for the penultimate show of the residency, bringing along Robin Schulz, Feder and LOVRA to accompany him.
German star LOVRA kicked off proceedings with a performance absolutely packed with huge hits, delighting the crowd with her energetic style. Next up was French DJ Feder who provided an equally sensational performance, delivering his unique blend of deep house resulting in widespread approval amongst the audience. Robin Schulz was next up, dropping a number of classic hits as well as paying tribute to the late Avicii. Exploring the deep house and future house genres before circling back towards his own hits, Robin Schulz made light work of entertaining the crowd. Building the atmosphere to its peak, he effortlessly reacted to the crowd, delivering an unforgettable experience. Towards the end of his set, he dropped his iconic hit ‘Sugar‘, resulting in the onlooking crowd cheering and singing along.
As a murmur of excitement rippled through the crowd, David Guetta’s performance was imminent. Jumping onto the stage with palpable energy, David Guetta opened his set with his Martin Garrix and Brooks collaboration ‘Like I Do‘, accompanied by a burst of fireworks as the crowd gasped with excitement. Switching from hit to hit, Guetta treated his audience to a vast number of his most iconic tracks, including ‘Bad‘, ‘Hey Mama‘, ‘Play Hard‘, and ‘Titanium‘. His set spanned a number of decades and an array of genres, from commercial pop to progressive house, from tech house to future house. One aspect of his set that never lapsed was the relentless energy that could be felt through each and every twist and turn.
During the middle of his set, Guetta switched over to performing tracks originating from his Jack Back alias. During this interlude, an acrobat soared above the crowd attached to a cloud of balloons. The majestic moment left the audience in awe, gazing up at the sky for several minutes. The sheer beauty of the scene was truly something to behold, as the audience waved flashing sticks, resulting in a rainbow effect over the crowd. Guetta closed his set with ‘I Gotta Feeling‘ by The Black Eyed Peas before switching to his euphoric anthem ‘Without You‘. The set closed with a jaw-dropping explosion of fireworks and confetti, creating a truly magical moment.
With such mindblowing pyrotechnics and a lineup filled with some of electronic music’s finest stars, it comes as no surprise that David Guetta’s BIG residency will continue to be one of Ibiza’s most iconic parties for years to come. This year played host to a number of huge artists including The Chainsmokers, Afrojack, Alesso, Oliver Heldens, and Don Diablo. While next year’s Ushuaïa residencies are yet to be confirmed, David Guetta looks set to continue his residency for the eighth year in a row.
