During his visit, he also released the official video of his latest track BIBA, composed together with Indian musician Pritam. BIBA has become a youth anthem in India since its release.
“India is so special to me. This is my third time here (in India) and I love it even more each time I come back,” Marshmello said in an interview with Indian Express.
Here are a few interesting moments and high times from Marshmello’s Tour de India.
2-minute silence at Pune, Vh1 Supersonic music festival for Pulwama Martyrs

Before playing his foot-tapping numbers here, American electronic music producer and DJ Marshmello observed a two-minute silence for the 44 CRPF Jawans who were martyred in the Pulwama terrorist attack on 14th February, 2018. Indian tricolour projected in the background, DJ Marshmello said: “Two minutes silence for the Indian soldiers who lost their lives in a terrorist attack.” Marshmello also expressed his grief on twitter.
Marshmello Went Bollywood
Fans at Vh1 Supersonic music festival saw some major surprise bombs by the DJ. He played songs like Coca Cola from a recent Bollywood movie. It’s been a trend that all international DJs, from DJ Snake to Alan Walker, touring India play Bollywood songs. Earlier in 2016, at the Sunburn Festival, Marshmello payed a tribute to Shah Rukh Khan and surprised the audience by playing ‘Chaiyya Chaiyya’ during his show. During his Mumbai tour, he left the crowd going crazy when he casually played ‘Kala Chashma’.
