With 800+ million streams across 20+ releases and remixes, David Guetta & Morten continue to dominate the music scene, not forgetting David as the 4th most streamed artist on Spotify. Guetta is fresh off of a legendary run, with over two billion streams combined for the smash hit ‘Baby Don’t Hurt Me’, featuring pop megastars Anne-Marie and Coi Leray, and streaming monster ‘I’m Good (Blue)’, which hit #1 on the UK Singles chart as well as in 15 other territories including Australia, Denmark, Switzerland, Norway and Finland.
Over the past three years, the world-renowned superstar DJ & producer has teamed up with Danish phenomenon MORTEN to create a brand-new dance music culture by unleashing their pioneering ‘Future Rave’ sound. Emerging from their desire to play something new in their sets, the inventive genre reflects their vision on the future of electronic dance music: fresh and innovative. Both David & MORTEN are heavily inspired by the underground, and they have made it their trademark to bring sounds and formats from the underground and present it to the masses. With Future Rave, the duo is bringing the best elements of both the EDM and underground scenes together, while keeping the cutting-edge sound ever-evolving. Future Rave builds bridges between the energy and the hooks of EDM, the futuristic sounds of techno and the emotion of trance and (future) house.

This season, following an iconic show at the Brooklyn Mirage in May, the Future Rave excitement returns to Ibiza for a series of highly anticipated events.
