Yesterday, Martin Garrix become the headliner of Djakarta Warehouse Project (DWP) virtual festival. He open the set with Animals + Poison intro as he walk to the stage and shout, “Whats up Djakarta Warehouse Project! My name is Martin Garrix & I miss you guys”. After 1 hour of energetic music, he end the set with In The Name Of Love and said “Thank you so much for tuning in, thank you so much for listening, and see you guys really soon. Love you!” As usual, Martin Garrix bring his contagious energy on stage even though this was a virtual livestream and not the normal DWP as usual due to pandemic. Not to mention the visual for DWP Virtual Festival was so pretty and comparable to Tomorrowland digital festival. For those of you who hasn’t watch the set, you can watch it in the video below.
Since there were so many people trying to access the livestream when it’s near his time to perform, the festival experience technical difficulties. More than 22 thousands people rushed to watch Martin Garrix’s livestream. His performance in Garuda V stage was the talk of the town with so many praise from fans and people alike that #DWPV and Martin Garrix was trending for 8 and 6 hours in Indonesia, respectively (data from getdaytrends.com).
In DWP 2016 interview, Martin Garrix said he’s happy to perform in Indonesia because the audience is so dope and give him good energy. Martin Garrix himself has Indonesian blood since his grandfather is from Indonesia. Moreover, Indonesia is one of Martin Garrix’s biggest fanbase with more than 1 million of his Instagram followers come from Indonesia. I hope that after the pandemic is over and it’s safe to tour again Martijn will really come to Indonesia and perform in person.
