been sold out in a week.
This year's End Show on the Main Stage on 16th August, will be hosted by Martin Garrix, who is
currently number four on the Top 100 DJs list. This year's end show will be even more spectacular and
exciting full of fireworks, pyrotechnic and other special effects and a magnificent laser show. Added to the
Main Stage program, Gogol Bordello will come back this year with a super crazy show, making the
whole crowd dance together.

1970s-style funk" that they will prove at the Island of Freedom. Tyler, The Creator will also have a
