Martin Garrix takes the mainstage of Sziget Festival by storm
What a whirlwind of a year it’s been for the young Martin Garrix already! After having to have intensive surgery on his leg, the superstar has come back in full force proving that it will take more than an injury to keep him down. Kicking off his crazy tour schedule in the last few weeks, Garrix has offered fans an exciting new setlist on the ANIMA Tour, and a new stage production to go with it all. Starting in July and carrying on through to the end of August, the tour takes him all around Europe, America and Japan and features 14 full ANIMA shows (not all dates on the tour feature the full ANIMA production), and one of those was for the mainstage of Sziget Festival in Hungary.
Although Martin Garrix is one of the typical acts to see on a festival’s mainstage lineup, he took the time this year to explore the other stages (most notably not playing the iconic mainstage of Tomorrowland this year, instead sticking to his self-curated STMPD stage) but now the powerhouse is back on the big stage to take the festival crowds by storm.
Featuring some Martin Garrix staples, the tracklist included legendary tracks such as ‘Gold Skies’, ‘Animals’ and ‘High On Life’ – which was the beautiful closer for the set – and also featured remixes of Garrix tracks from DubVision, DallasK and Madison Mars to mix things up. Putting the spotlight on his self-founded record label STMPD, the setlist featured a lot of STMPD released/soon to be released records and shone light upon smaller artists. If the incredible set wasn’t enough, Garrix surprised the huge crowd by inviting Macklemore himself to perform the live edit of smash hit ‘Summer Days’ and unsurprisingly the crowd went crazy for it.
