David Guetta ready to rock Valencia 22 Jun 2011
With just days to go until the F1 Rocks event in Valencia, headline act David Guetta is putting the finishing touches to his preparations. Mega producer Guetta will perform at the Spanish citys Agora (Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias) on Friday night ahead of Sundays 2011 Formula 1 Grand Prix of Europe.
A multi-award winning artist in his own right, with three chart-topping albums to his name, the Frenchman has also worked with a variety of pop and hip-hop artists such as Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna, Lil Wayne, Kylie Minogue and Madonna. Fridays event will be the first time Guetta has performed his new show in Spain - and he has promised his fans a few surprises.
I always come with my robots and theyre definitely going to be speaking to the drivers and the teams, he explained. And Im going to have a big LED 3D system, which is really crazy. I have a new show now and this will be the first time Im going to perform it in Spain so its pretty exciting.
Although the jet-set lifestyle of a top-flight music producer leaves little time for anything but making music, Guetta is a fan of fast cars and when asked to consider who hed pick to join him in the pit lane if he were a driver, it didnt take him long to select two team mates.
I would take (producer and DJ) Afrojack and (Black Eyed Peas member) Will.i.am because I know they both love fast cars, he added. Will.i.am took me in his car, which is a super-fast electric vehicle. Its like a race car. They would be two good partners definitely.
After Guettas Friday performance, the on-track action on Saturday and Sunday will be followed by the exclusive F1 Rocks The Afterparty to be held at Lumbracle Terraza, also at the Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias. Legendary DJ Seb Fontaine will provide the soundtrack at both nights.
