Watch Martin Garrix’s fateful fall and recovery in the return of ‘The Martin Garrix Show’
The Martin Garrix Show has returned for its fourth season, and the 13-minute episode recaps Martin Garrix‘s EDC Las Vegas performance and takes listeners on the journey of how he injured his ankle in Las Vegas that same week.
The producer starts the episode by returning to EDC for his sixth year, and REZZ makes a cameo when she asks Garrix if he still gets nervous before big performances like EDC (he does). Garrix proceeds to perform at Wet Republic and Omnia until he takes the fateful fall that resulted in the producer canceling his upcoming shows. Viewers can see behind-the-scenes footage from the hospital and watch the producer recuperate wheelchair-bound in his home in Amsterdam while he waits to get his MRI.
In his home, Garrix tells the full story of the fall. It occurred when he was performing at Omnia during his 10th day in Las Vegas, and because he is smaller, he always utilizes a riser so that he looks taller for the crowd. When landing after a jump off of the DJ booth, his foot landed on the edge of the riser, causing his ankle to snap as he fell into a glass wall behind the booth. After taking a break in the green room immediately after the fall, Garrix returned to the booth to finish out his set against his team’s will before heading to the hospital.
