David Guetta NYE Livestream

The UAE’s favourite superstar DJ rings in the New Year with an innovative livestreamed performance from the Louvre Abu Dhabi.

When High Scream’s Romain Pissenem heard about David Guetta’s plan of producing a New Year’s Eve livestream from the Louvre Abi Dhabi, he was neither surprised, nor disappointed. “As soon as David’s team told me about the project, I thought ‘nothing could make more sense than this’,” he reminisced.

The world-renowned DJ is fast becoming the UAE’s favourite artist, with a string of high-profile performances in the country, including a breath-taking livestream from the helipad of the Burj Al Arab [TPMEA #29]. He also has a history with the Louvre, after performing a New Year’s Eve show from the Paris museum last year.

“After the Louvre in Paris and the Burj Al Arab, it was the perfect time to do it again in Abu Dhabi,” Pissenem said. “It was a different challenge to Paris, but I love Abu Dhabi – it’s a very authentic place and, culturally speaking, it has a lot to offer.”
