Like him or loathe him (and I can hear several DJs shuddering at the mention of his name) David Guetta will be playing a packed show in Marbella tonight.
Some may complain that the Frenchman represents everything that’s wrong with European Dance Music, and his shows have no spontaneity, but you can’t deny that Guetta is the biggest and most commercially successful DJ on the planet right now, as his multi-million selling records and remixes with the great and the good of R&B including Kellly Rowland, Rihianna and Nikki Minaj prove.
This is the second time that Guetta has played San Pedro’s municipal stadium, and if last year’s concert is anything to go by, you can expect traffic chaos as over 15,000 people try and get to the venue down the single lane access road and a spectacular light and sound set.
And it’s going to be loud. Last year I could hear the bass booming from up on the Istan road, and there have already been Social Media posts that neighbourhood windows have been shaking.
Whatever your views, Guetta’s gig is a hell of a way to kick off August in Marbella!
Estadio Municipal San Pedro, 8pm
