Martin Garrix played his first ever show in Ohio this past weekend at Prime Social Group‘s Hauntedfest. Garrix had taken a few weeks off after the Amsterdam Music Festival and the release of the DJ mag top 100. After being declared the #3 DJ, Hauntedfest was Martin’s first scheduled show  although he made a surprise stop in Chicago to hang out with Zedd the night before. With this show being his first official show he was able to blow away his audience by taking the stage with a beautiful new piano version of “Animals”. Listen below!

He first debuted this blissful VIP at ADE, although it wasn’t quite to the extent that his latest (above) has been developed. Check it out.

On Friday, October 30th, Hauntedfest took over three cities: Columbus, Dallas and Denver. I was lucky enough to attend Haunted Fest Columbus which featured one of the biggest EDM lineups the city has ever seen including sets from Martin Garrix, Snails, Cash Cash, Pierce Fulton and NGHTMRE. The costume friendly festival featured a silent disco showcasing local DJs from the Ohio Area as well as one of the coolest VIP sections.
