With his global appeal and unique sound, Garrix has received countless awards and recognition from fans and music industry insiders worldwide. Having been named the number one DJ in the world by DJ Mag not just once, but three times, as well as numerous appearances on Billboard’s Hot 100, and winning several music industry awards, Garrix has solidified himself as one of dance music’s freshest and in-demand talents.
Also headlining Friday is multi-platinum hip-hop artist and “dapper rapper” G-Eazy. Since arriving on the hip-hop scene, he’s established himself as a hit maker.
