We are in Japan. Great weather. What’s so special about this festival? Everything! Akie: So Fuji Rock is I think pretty much the biggest festival in Japan for music, as you can see it’s up in the mountains there’s a lot of nature very kind of different from the urban Tokyo style and it’s usually very much kind of a
rock/alternative kind of lineup so big acts that would play here would be big
rock bands for example and it’s very rare that an artist like Martin plays on
the green stage which is the biggest stage outside. Martijn: Yo guys is Martin Garrix and I’m about to go on stage at Fuji Rock and I’m so excited. No idea what to expected but they say the
crowd used to the weather like this. You want to go early? Martijn: I’m down.
Okay let’s start the show early then! Okay boys we’re gonna start early, I’m going to walk up to the stage and to the change-over. Gabe: F*cking crushing it, that was a really good one, that was seriously a good one. Martijn: It was so good to be back in Japan. My first Fuji Rock ever,
the rain didn’t stop anybody from going crazy. I’m having pizza right now, amazing! My ankle actually looks really, really good.
I don’t think I’ve ever seen it, of course before that injury but this thin, this
less swollen. So this is good. I woke up like this, it’s like what the f*ck. And then this morning in the
group chat it was like “Oh it was the earthquake last night. Oh that’s what I felt. Watse: It was pretty far away but it was still like 6.1 on the Richter scale. This took like ten minutes to make, I like that idea. It’s very simple and rough, but all the
AREA 21 stuff is like: Bloop! Maejor: Everything okay bro?
Martijn: Yeah did you like the idea I sent you? Maejor: It’s fire!
Martijn: Could be cool, I just sent you the instrumental so you can just vibe with it. Problem is with hot pizza I want to eat
it real quick but then I always burn my mouth so yeah. Verstappen has won!
Louis: Big shoutout to Verstappen! Martijn: Maxi! Aischa: Okay, Rolling Stone came out with the
editorial of your Fuji Rock performance last night and they’re calling it
legendary performance that will live on be spoken up for the years to come. Louis: Did you sleep well Martijn?
Martijn: Wonderful. I couldn’t fall asleep til 11:00 in the
morning, no idea why and how. I watched Salvatore Ganacci’s set on Tomorrowland, it was kind of funny. It’s hard to put me in one genre. What I like to do is combine different genres. And now I’m going to make it 3D. No! Where?
Louis: Around the corner. Aischa: What is it?
Axolotls is my favorite animal, do they sell them here? Steven: Those ugly creatures? Martijn: Hey, take it easy! So we’re in this crazy museum / art exhibition and we’re doing a meet-and-greet with the fans. I don’t think I’ve ever done a meet-and-greet at a cooler place. So sick! I put everything I have inside of me
into the music that I make and I’m grateful you guys enjoy it, so thank you
for being part of my journey and letting me being part of your journey. I love you Japan, with the bottom of my heart. It’s very inspiring.
I can’t wait to be back! Thank you guys. Three days in Tokyo, what an amazing three days and I can’t wait to go to sleep to get some rest. Tokyo is over. I slept horrible this three days, I kept waking up. Maybe also because it’s like 25 degree Celsius
in my room. I’m ready! My two purchases from Tokyo. Peace out!
