MUMBAI: Grammy Award-winning DJ David Guetta wants his India tour to be special, and he is doing every bit to keep his promise. The music producer will get a grand ‘festival set’ akin to those he uses for his international gigs to entertain his Indian fans.

Guetta, who has chart-topping hits like "When love takes over", "Gettin over you" and "Sexy bitch" to his credit, will perform in New Delhi (March 9), Pune (March 10) and Bangalore (March 11) as part of the second edition of the Eristoff Invasion tour.

Weeks before his performance, a dexterous team of production designers is putting together the biggest LED set-up for his festival set.

The LED screen, with a width of 49 ft and a height of 23 ft, is said to be the biggest that the country has seen at a live concert.

It will form the backdrop of the stage design. This is one of the bigger elements that’s part of Guetta’s euphoric festival set, the same that has travelled with him to some of the most reputed international festivals such as Tomorrow Land (2010) and Ultra Music Festival (2011).

Apart from the LED backdrop, Guetta’s festival set will have an LED console and over 200 Intelligent lights as part of the stage decor.

"There is not a single element that’s part of David Guetta’s festival set internationally that we won’t be providing in the Indian experience," Dhruv Jagasia, festival director of organisers Only Much Louder, said in a press statement.

Earlier, Guetta said he is upbeat about travelling to India and performing here.

"I’m excited to finally get to play in India. I know my music has been heard and supported for many years, but until now it’s been impossible to get there. This will be a very special tour, I’m sure," Guetta had said.

The Eristoff Invasion 2012 is powered by UTV Bindass, and produced by Only Much Louder and UKNY Music.
