Garrix to sell his own currency at ADE

Martin Garrix is selling his own banknotes - the Garrix 10 - at this year’s Amsterdam Dance Event, in aid of the SOS Children’s Villages and War Child charities

Garrix to sell his own currency at ADE

Attendees of this week’s Amsterdam Dance Event will be able to head to an ATM and withdraw cash. That doesn’t really sound like news, I know. But this cash will have Martin Garrix’s face on it.

The producer is selling the ‘Garrix 10’ notes in aid of the SOS Children’s Villages and War Child charities. Each note will set you back €10 and can be spent… absolutely nowhere. But you will be able to withdraw it from a number of special ATMs set up around Amsterdam, which sounds like fun, doesn't it?

Why would you want to spend it anyway? As a press release declares, the notes are “a true collector’s item”. So, if you get one, you can feel the warm glow of being confirmed a true collector. And giving your actual money to charity, of course.

As well as featuring a banknote-style illustration of Garrix’s face, the notes will also carry a list (in very small font) of every song he has released to date, and well as other imagery that will only be visible under UV light.

“The charity note is not just a symbol of Martin Garrix's musical journey but also a powerful statement of his commitment to making a difference through his music”, adds the press release.

The notes will be available during ADE from special ATMs at Art’Otel, Niewendijk 47, Madame Tussauds, Groene Paleis Rokin 65, Andaz Hotel, Reguliersbreestraat 35, Club Air and RAI Amsterdam. Any leftover notes will be sold online after ADE finishes. 

Garrix will also be performing at RAI Amsterdam on Friday and Saturday night.
