David Guetta beats up the Great Wall


If you define a period of time by a genre of music, then electronic dance music is definitely right now. Dance numbers are dominating the charts worldwide. It seems the whole world is dancing. Well now dance fever has come to China in the shadow of the Great Wall, as one of the biggest DJs in the world makes his debut in the country.

The sun is shining and the beats are pumping...all staged at one of the seven wonders of the world. A parade of top djs from home and abroad ensure the party attracts a diverse crowd of revellers.

And there's a stage for everyone. And as night falls the party really gets going as two-time Grammy Award winner David Guetta takes to the stage.

David said, "What's up China? Are you guys ready to party? one more time, are you guys ready to party!?"

And the world famous dj doesn't disappoint, spinning hit after hit.

He said, "Look around, people from different countries and ages all gathered together here to enjoy the same music and there's David Guetta! It's a once in a lifetime experience!"

This is the biggest event of its kind to date at the great wall and organizers hope its success will continue next year.

DJ Spark said, "This is only the beginning. We are planning to make this festival an annual event. We want to show that there's not only rock n' roll or pop music here in China, we also have electronic dance music!"

There's nothing but the beat here at the foot of the Great Wall, what an awe-inspiring party! I can actually feel the energy ripple through this crowd of over 10 thousand people who are lucky enough to be here. It's so much more than just a festival; it's a lifestyle, and a clear sign that the scene in Beijing continues to grow in stature and diversity.
