In 2013, Dutch DJ Martijn Garritsen aka Martin Garrix (@martingarrix) was just another face in the crowd. He had arrived in Miami to enjoy a weekend of tunes with his friends at the annual electronic music festival Ultra. But soon after, his breakout hit “Animals” lit up the electronic dance world, charting in more than a dozen countries. The then-17-year-old Martin suddenly became a hot commodity at concerts all over the globe. (For proof just check out his photos, where he’s often seen standing in front of massive stage designs composed of colorful lasers and strobing lights.) Twelve months after attending Ultra as a fan, Martin found himself back in Miami, this time on the main stage, performing for the crowd he was once standing in. “There were so many people from different countries around the world,” he says. “There was one moment where everybody put their flags up in the air. There were [people] from India, people from Australia, people from the U.S. It was insane.” Photo by @martingarrix
