The recording of Charlotte de Witte’s performance in Montenegro is rapidly reaching the first million viewers mark, while she received global support from a key actor on the electronic scene, BBC’s legendary music editor Pete Tong, who during an exclusive interview with the Belgian superstar, called the coast of Budva around the Mogren Fort one of the most beautiful places in the world!
Asked by Tong how she found herself on the Mogren, Charlotte said: “It was a collaboration with the EXIT Festival, which launched a concept in which they bring DJs to beautiful locations from which they stream their performances. I was lucky to have the opportunity to be the first one to perform at this beautiful location in Montenegro. We filmed at sunset and it was magical.”
Few DJs and producers on the planet have the kind of influence Pete Tong has had on the world of dance music in the past 20 years. As the editor and the voice of Europe’s leading radio station, BBC Radio 1, Pete has, mostly through the Essential Mix and Essential Selection, become a top music authority and one of the key figures in the industry over the past two decades. His exceptional work secured him the unofficial title of the global ambassador of electronic dance music.
With this Charlotte de Witte’s performance, EXIT has launched its new InfinitX project which, as the artist herself described to Pete Tong, will combine the biggest musical names with the most beautiful locations around the world in order to promote these destinations. The stream of the set filmed at the old Austro-Hungarian fortress Mogren, which offers a fantastic view of the Adriatic Sea and the coast of Budva has so far been viewed on social media and online video services by 930,000 people around the globe. The audience from all continents and over a hundred countries showed enthusiasm for Charlotte’s music and appearance, as well as the natural beauties of the location expressing a great desire to visit Montenegro.
