1. Greenworld Festival, Tenerife – Spain: 

Playing in front of 8000 people on my home island of Tenerife was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. I started my career here, so for me, it’s always special to play at home!!

2. Amnesia Ibiza presents: Club Colmito w/ The Martinez Brothers – Chile
This gig was during my visit to Chile in January as part of my South American Tour, Club Colmito was insane! The crowd was amazing and had so much energy across the entire event!

3. Pacha Barcelona (Warm Up Marco Carola), Barcelona – Spain 
I played the night before NYE and warmed up for Music On boss Marco Carola. Pacha never disappoints!
A great atmosphere and crowd, and one of my favourite nights from 2017.

4. Amnesia Milano – Italy 
Amnesia Milano is one of my favourite clubs to play in Italy, and my experiences keep getting better and better year after year. I love the club, the crowd and the vibes inside!

5. Soultech Festival – Mexico 
This show was also my first time in Mexico, and Soultech Festival was mind-blowing. I played early in the morning while the sun was rising and you could really feel the warmth of the crowd. A truly unforgettable experience!!
6. Local 29 –  Malaga – Spain 
Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words, and this one speaks for itself. Super vibes at Local 29!!
