Musician and DJ David Guetta will headline the Euro 2016 opening ceremony. Swedish singer Zara Larsson will also be part of the ceremony.
Guetta’s song “This One’s For You” is the official song of Euro 2016:
The opening ceremony will take place just before kickoff of the opening match between France and Romania. Both the ceremony and match will take place at Stade de France in Saint-Denis, France. The performance is expected to have more than 600 people.
UEFA described the opening ceremony in a statement:
“Drawing inspiration from icons of French popular culture, the event will include around 150 can-can dancers and an acrobatic demonstration by the French Air Force will fly over the stadium, performing the Patrouille de France ahead of the national anthems – which will be played by the French Republican Guard and the Choir School of Radio France.”
Billboard describes Guetta’s style as a combination of “Daft Punk’s sleek house music with a pinch of electroclash’s punch.” His work includes a collaboration with Black Eyed Peas “”I Gotta Feeling.”
He has collaborated with artists like Lil’ Wayne, Kid Cudi, Chris Brown and Rihanna.
The night before the start of Euro 2016, Guetta performed in front of the Eiffel Tower. Watch the full concert here:
