"India is a magical place. The energy that I get from the country and the fans creatively inspires me. Music can change lives," he said.
Grammy award winning DJ and producer, David Guetta will be performing in India in January, 2017, for a good cause — he wants to raise funds for underprivileged children here.
The superstar, often dubbed as the “Grandfather of EDM” has performed in India multiple times since 2012. The upcoming charity performance has been christened #Guetta4Good and it will take place in Bengaluru on January 12. The proceeds from ticket sales will benefit Magic Bus, an NGO that works for children living in poverty, through education and social experiences.
Talking about his performance, Guetta in a statement said, “India is a magical place. The energy that I get from the country and the fans creatively inspires me. Music can change lives.”

Sunburn’s CEO Karan Singh elaborated on the sentiment noting, “The idea of using music as a medium to raise funds to support our children is one that has connected with the youth of India and am sure we will see an overwhelming response for David’s performance come January.” Guetta has been performing and making music since the 80s but has found mainstream success with his 2009 album, One Love.
Magic Bus has chapters across the world with the one in India operating in 22 states and working with 4,00,000 children in the country.
