The eight-day Belsonic Festival roared to a close last night in with French DJ David Guetta headlining the final night.

The audience were treated to a balmy evening as the sun went down — and with no rain.

Since 2000, Guetta has written, produced and sung numerous hits, both solo and with other acts. Living up to his reputation, Guetta delivered many of the hits came from his current album — One Love — but of course Love Don’t Let Me Go, Heroes and Walking Away also featured.

The set was a runaway success and Guetta was obviously having as much fun as the crowd who literally bounced the night away. Several times Guetta turned the spotlight onto the audience for a chorus line and the stage was illuminated by a spectacular light show. This was an evening of fabulous noise with an electric atmosphere.

Guetta delivered in a big way with a lot of enthusiasm and a lot of energy.

This was an amazing set that will certainly be talked about for weeks to come.

You're a highly practical person who doesn't like building castles in the air. Stop disparaging fantasies. They can take you to incredible heights. The prospect of fulfilling your potential should appeal to an ambitious person like you. Fortunately, friends will be very supportive. Ask for help whenever you get stuck in a tight corner.More
