The world’s number one DJ, Martin Garrix, headlines Ultra SA this weekend. The super sexy Dutch producer and musician has become an industry heavyweight at just 20 years old. We got to know more about the EDM star ahead of his performance.

What was your first gig?

Back in 2010, I threw a party in my hometown of Amstelveen, in the Netherlands. I asked all my friends to come and they invited their friends, and before I knew it there were like 400 people there! It was really fun.

What’s the first album you ever bought? 

I don’t recall an album, but the first single I bought was ‘Blue’ by Eiffel 65.

Favourite collaboration?

I love all the collaborations I’ve done so far, but right now I would have to say ‘In The Name Of Love’ with Bebe Rexha.

Who would you like to work with in the future?

I want to hit the studio with Pharrell Williams.

How do you feel about fashion?

I only started caring about clothing a year or two ago, but now I love shopping! I wear things that I think are dope and follow brands I like on social media to keep up with their new collections.

How do you get festival-ready?

Before hitting a festival stage, I always spend a quiet moment relaxing in my dressing room to prepare myself for the set.

What are your travel essentials?

My laptop, headphones and iPhone.
