Martin Garrix has certainly made sure to keep his name in people’s mouths this festival season. The 19-year-old DJ/producer has debuted a wealth of new tracks in the past few months, featuring collaborations with the likes of Tiësto and Alesso, and will now begin a new residency at Ushuaïa in Ibiza, Spain.
The prestigious hotel and resort will begin a weekly residency with the young talent on July 3rd that will extend through August.
“Nearly a year ago, Martin performed at Ushuaïa for the first time opening for David Guetta where thousands were in attendance for his set,” read a release. “Martin’s new night, dubbed ‘Multiply’ will feature Oliver Heldens as direct support every week, with a slew of other opening talent to be announced soon.”
The inclusion of Oliver Heldens in each installment of the residency will undoubtedly add considerable draw to the high-profile weekly. Besides that, Heldens’ influence might also serve to make each event more Ibiza friendly – as popular as Garrix is, the underground is far more alive in Ibiza than it is in major EDM hotspots like Las Vegas, so his hard-kicks-and-big-drops style may not be as well received on its own. Nonetheless, the residency will surely make for ideal testing grounds as he continues to release new material.
