Going for golden

The news just in, is that we’re getting not one but two huge EDM artists — Martin Garrix and DJ Snake — to replace the Foo Fighters who had to pull out of Sunday’s Yasalam conert. And it’s huge news, Martin Garrix was ranked at the very top spot of DJ Mags Top 100 DJs list for three consecutive years between 2016 and 2018. Garrix is probably best known for his monster club hits “Animals”, “In the Name of Love” and “Scared to Be Lonely”. DJ Snake has manufactured beats and featured on collabs for some of the biggest acts on the EDM, dance hall and hip-hop scene. His singles “Taki-Taki”, “Loc Contigo” and “Enzo” from his most recent album demonstrate a wild range of beautifully eclectic, big noise beats. And to ensure you get the very best spectating experience, Golden Circle passes (which help you jump queues and give your priority viewing) are recommended.
