Concert Report: DJ Martin Garrix (CFE Arena)

It's been awhile since I attended an event at CFE Arena but who could pass up seeing the Number 1 DJ in the world!
Located on the campus of the University of Central Florida, the show was free to UCF students as part of their Homecoming weekend! The early crowd is pictured above watching the preshow and they really limited the number of students allowed down on the floor.
And then at 8:45PM loud screams went up as these symbols appeared on the screen. The symbols for the Number 1 DJ in the world.....
Martin Garrix (NL)
As far as I could get; just too packed! 
Opening with one of his early hits "Virus".
He was quite animated up there, chatting with the crowd & jumping on the tables!
Laser explosion!
Packed to the rafters!
Well, actually not. The lower bowl of the stands were pretty full but the upper deck much less so.  I would estimate the crowd at about 5,000.  Not too shabby!
During the show he would run through his catalogue of hits.
EDM of course and the crowd sang the words to a lot of the songs!
Lights please!

Coming over to say hello! 
Basically it was an all-EDM show with a generation attending that grew up with the genre. I love EDM and really enjoyed it and you could tell that a good time was had by all!
