DJ SNAKE will perform for an exceptional event in Mauritius at the Côte d’Or Stadium on Saturday 14th December 2019. The most listened to French artist in the world who has just won two awards at the Latin American Music Awards (including Song of the year with Taki Taki) will offer the Mauritian public an exceptional show never before produced.
Born of a French father and an Algerian mother, DJ Snake, whose real name is William Sami Étienne Grigahcine, was born on June 13, 1986 in Paris. He grew up in a working-class district in Ermont, then in the Val-d’Oise. It was at the age of 14 that William discovered his passion for mixing, after seeing the scene of disc jockey Curt Kille in the French film, La Haine.
DJ Snake made his passion his vocation and performed in his early days in several clubs such as Les Bains Douches in Paris. His nickname of reptile, he owes it to his background as a street artist while he produces graffiti in the streets of Paris. His career took off in 2011, after his collaboration with Lady Gaga on her album Born this way, which earned him a Grammy’s nomination in 2012. On the strength of this success, he decided to renew his duet with Lady Gaga on her album Artpop in 2013.
Dj Snake reached ultimate success in December 2013, when he unveiled “Turn down for what” in duet with Lil Jon, and after having accumulated more than 800 million views on Youtube, the track was certified as a platinum record in March 2014. After several other singles, the DJ returns in 2015, with the new summer hit “Lean On” featuring some with Major Lazer. The title is a worldwide success. In July 2016, he released his first album Encore. On July 26, 2019, he released his second album Carte Blanche, which already included major hits such as “Taki Taki” and Loco Contigo.
This event at the Stade de Côte d’Or will start from 9pm and continue until the early morning hours, opening with a selection of selected local artists who will be announced later. For any activity booking during your stay in our luxury resort, do not hesitate to contact the concierge service.
