As Garrix told us, his interest in music was piqued during the big games a decade ago: “It was 2004 and I was watching TV with my parents, who mentioned that a famous Dutch DJ would perform at the Olympics, so we watched it together. It was the first time I ever saw a DJ performing and when I watched how Tiësto was DJing, I just thought it was the coolest thing and wanted to do it myself!”

Garrix’s day in the life clip follows him all around the Big Apple, including a few trips on the subway. “I love New York! I had such an amazing time shooting the video during my first headlining US tour,” he says.
