Only two weeks ago at the DJ Mag Top 100 Awards in Amsterdam, Dutch DJ, producer and musician, Martin Garrix was crowned the World’s #1 DJ. At 20 years old, he is the youngest DJ to ever hold the top spot.

So when he returned to India for a ground-breaking charity event, with a purpose – to educate Indian children, the response was phenomenal. Over 40,000 Indian fans showed up on November 10 at the Mahalaxmi Racecourse to support him in his endeavor and see him perform. Before he hit the stage, Martin Garrix joined Shailendra Singh, the organizer of this event, in presenting a donation check to Matthew Spacie, Founder of the NGO Magic Bus. 

“It just shows you how grounded Martijn is,” says Shailendra Singh, Jt MD of Percept and Inceptor of Sunburn. “Even after becoming world #1, he agreed to take time from his schedule to come to India and donate his performance for children’s education. He didn’t hesitate to say ‘yes, let’s do this!’ He’s accomplished so much, but this shows you what’s important to him.” 

“We couldn’t be more thankful to Martin Garrix and Shailendra,” said Matthew Spacie, “Through this donation, we will be able to support 10,000 children in communities all across India, in our program. This is the kind of support that is helping to ensure that 99% of our children stay in school and continue on a path to livelihood.”

200 Magic Bus children were present to celebrate the donation handover, and felicitate Martin Garrix and Shailendra Singh.

“We wanted Martin to be able to really feel the impact that he is making for these 10,000 children,” says Shailendra Singh. “The Magic Bus children got to thank him, and Martin got to witness how his one act, can change the lives of so many.”

As a result of the event that took place on Nov 10 at Mahalaxmi Racecourse, Mumbai, 10,000 underprivileged Indian children will be educated on the 10 year Magic Bus programme
