The playlist on my iPhone, the Car Stereo, iTunes on the computer and all the possible musical gadgets pertaining to “I” had the tunes of David Guetta’s Electronic Dance Music loaded. I had been gearing up for much awaited Eristoff Invasion Festival 2012 from past few weeks. Saturday, 10th March, 2012 – Around 8000+ fans invaded Amanora Town Park, Pune to meet Worlds #1 DJ for the very first time. The gates opened at 4:30 PM and the festival was kicked off. A very vibrant crowd with colorful head gears, glow sticks, bling geeky shades were singing to the chorus of his songs. I was not surprised to see a lot of teenagers attending this event as Guetta’s genre is House EDM.Accessoried with our entry tags, we had manged to reach just in time before Guetta’s performance. The stage was set up with mesmerizing LED visuals. The illustrative lightwork was smartly planned and it flamed in bold every time a track changed. He opened his set with “Gettin Over You” and “Titanium”. The first 30 minutes were just out of the world experience.
Disclaimer: Due to security reasons camera was not allowed and the pictures clicked were using iPhone.The crowed roared to the moon and back when Guetta was joined on stage by Hip Hop singer and songwriter AKON. They played in collaboration the next track (my most favourite) “Sexy Chick“. And I sang to my hearts’ content and danced along with the crowd. Guetta kept entertaining us with his other famous hits that included “I Gotta Feelin“, “Memories”, “Turn Me On”, “Give Me everything”, “Without You (twice)” and “When Love Takes Over“.The Two hour power pact performance ended with his new single “Crank It UP” featuring AKON. Guetta said, “This song is being played for the first time ever on this planet”. He further said, ” This is my first time in India but definitely not going to the last time”.
The crowd was seen waving cellphone lights in the air, giving this French man a warm goodbye. We headstarted towards the parking – High on music, heels in hand, walking bare feet and still singing the lyrics. I wished if I could really spin the world reverse for that performance again! Definitely, there’s no getting over..
Wish I could spin my world into reverse – Just to have you back again, there’s no getting over you..
