Multiply Opening Party of July 2015
Performing in Ibiza is not the same as hosting an event. These are two totally different responsibilities that Martin Garrix carried behind his back that first Friday of July 2015. In addition, that year the competition was very high, and not only with the rest of the clubs on the island. On the stage of Ushuaïa Ibiza Beach Hotel, he was accompanied by some of the most outstanding artists of the electronic star system: David Guetta, Hardwell, Armin Van Buuren, Axwell & Ingrosso, and Avicii.
The expectations were huge, especially when his 2014 performance had received excellent reviews - everyone wanted to see what the 19-year-old was capable of! Before Martin took the stage, Oliver Heldens, Chocolate Puma, Justin Mylo, and Lucas & Steve heated up the atmosphere. With a totally dedicated audience, Martin Garrix brought out his best repertoire to finish off the job, performing a set that was unmatched for the rest of the mortals. It was the proof everyone expected: Martin Garrix was here to stay.

Multiply Opening Party of July 2016
In 2016, Martin Garrix ended the famous saying that sequels were never good. Despite his age, he was used to debunking myths, and faced the 2016 season at the Ushuaïa Ibiza Beach Hotel as the great triumph of his career, rising to the top. To achieve this, his opening party had to raise the bar from his last show in 2015. It was Martin Garrix himself who pushed for more and encouraging our rising expectations to keep up.
Martin's international impact was more than evident. The surroundings of Ushuaïa Ibiza Beach Hotel were flooded with clubbers, thousands of people were entering the premises in an orderly manner and did not stop dancing to the sets of Aeroplane, Snavs, Lucky Charmes and Justin Mylo. When Martin Garrix came on stage, the night was set, the lights went on and the rest is history.
Martin Garrix Opening Party of 2017
Here we are, 3rd year of Martin Garrix´s Ibizan adventure. The question remains, how far can he go with his shows? Was this his plateau? The artist went one step further, and the 2017 Ibizan season became a major challenge. In addition to his residence in Ushuaïa Ibiza, Martin took care of Monday night at the new super club Hï Ibiza with its Multiply concept. If managing one event in Ibiza is hard, pulling off two is a titanic feat. But his exuberating youth proved it could handle anything put in front of it.
Crowned as the best DJ in the world, Garrix started the opening party of 2017 without the support of the Multiply concept, but with a technological deployment and production never seen before on the island. Justin Mylo, Estaw, The Him, A-Trak, and Zedd braved the crowd until Martin Garrix took over the mixer providing a comprehensive session from start to finish.
