This year, Summerburst will be home to some of the best DJ’s in the world including the world’s number one DJ, Martin Garrix. Spread out across three stages, the lineup includes a wide variety of artists from all areas of the scene. Here are my must-see artists from each stage.
Two-time number one DJ in the world Martin Garrix will be returning to the Summerburst Main Stage this year for an unforgettable performance. The 22-year-old Dutch DJ, producer, and founder of STMPD RCRDS will close out the festival on Friday night with a set filled with original and unreleased tracks. Known for his chart-topping single Animals and numerous collaborations with big and up and coming artists, Garrix regularly brings out special guests during his performances. So Sweden might be in for a treat! Check out his latest track with Loopers below.
