Garrix has been nominated as the Euro 2020 official music artist for this tournament. He will write the song for football and perform the UEFA Euro 2020 football theme song in the event. He is famous for an array of electronic pop hits such as “Don’t Look Down” (featuring Usher), “In the Name of Love” (featuring Bebe Rexha), “Scared to be Lonely” (collaborated with Dua Lipa). He has worked together with some famous artists and singers in the music industry, such as David Guetta and Tiesto.
It is a perfect way to celebrate the opening session of the game with an official football theme song. It isn’t the first time for an EDM artist to perform for the Euro tournament. Before Garrix, David Guetta was taking this position, wrote the official football theme song and performed during the Euro 2016 closing ceremony. “UEFA EURO 2020 will be a month of celebration across Europe, and there is no better person to get the party started than Garrix,” said Guy-Laurent Epstein, the director of marketing at UEFA.

Next summer’s tournament will take the fans closer to the action than ever before, and I really hope that my song will make everyone in Europe feel like they are part of it,” said Martin Garrix. To produce a football theme song for such a huge event is really a great milestone for a victorious artist in his career.
Garrix is inspired by Tiesto’s performance at the opening ceremony for the Olympic Games in 2004, and now, he got the chance to shine and shine in the Euro 2020’ stage. Don’t forget to mark down your calendars for spring 2020! Another singer will be participating as a collaboration in this football theme song.
