Source: World-Famous DJ Afrojack Coming to Vietnam in June

According to an industry source, Dutch DJ Afrojack, #7 on Forbes’ 2013 ‘The World’s Highest Paid DJs List’ and #9 on DJMag’s “Top 100 DJs” will be playing a massive show in Saigon this June. He would be one of the highest profile DJ to ever play Vietnam.

Afrojack quickly made a name for himself with a slew of hard-hitting underground releases, before exploding on the music scene in 2011 with the release of ‘Take Over Control’ – an instant worldwide club and chart hit which reached platinum status in the US.

In 2011, he co-wrote and produced 'Give Me Everything' for Pitbull and Ne-Yo, which to this day has sold more than 8 million copies worldwide and rich #1 in the US Billboard Hot 100 Charts.

In 2012, Afrojack headlined both EDC (Electric Daisy Carnival) NY and Las Vegas to over 300,000 people, as well as UMF (Ultra Music Festival) in Miami, and Tomorrowland (in Belgium).

The official announcement regarding DJ Afrojack coming to Vietnam has been confirmed by the organizers of the event. However, there are rumors that he will come to Ho Chi Minh City for a music festival in the beginning of June which promises to be the country’s biggest EDM festival of the year.
