French producer David is delighted to be the first DJ to perform at the event and told fans to expect special guests during his performance.
He said: “Performing at the 2011 MTV EMA is a big deal for any artist; but for a DJ, it’s a first. I’ll be joined by some of my special guest collaborators. I’m excited and honoured – it’s going to be a crazy show!”
