While Amsterdam Dance Event would normally rage through the city this week, Martin Garrix is coming to his fans in a different way this year. PostNL has decided to put him in the limelight with his own stamp that also contains a hidden surprise. Anyone who buys the stamps and downloads a special app will get to experience a virtual performance from the DJ/producer.
Have you always dreamed of a Martin Garrix performance in your living room? This is your chance!
The stamp has kept up with the current technology with a free interactive app that gives access to photos, info and a very special Garrix addition; by scanning the stamp with the app you will get an exclusive, private AR (augmented reality) performance by Martin Garrix himself. Because the DJ/producer and his booth merge with the camera of the phone, the viewer can enjoy the performance everywhere; at home, outside on the beach or even on top of a mountain.
The connection between Garrix and stamps is not a strange one. Because of his father’s stamp auction house, he got in touch with the industry from an early age, and eventually even decided to put a reference to stamps in the name of his label STMPD RCRDS.
Martin Garrix: ‘’From an early age I’ve had stamps around me due to my dad’s company. Therefore, when starting my label, we even chose a name that refers to stamps: STMPD RCRDS. It is very special to be on a stamp myself now and I am super happy with the end result.’’
The Martin Garrix stamp sheet has 5 identical stamps and is available here from today on. The validity period of the stamps is indefinite.
