To celebrate SFX Entertainment’s IPO yesterday, Afrojack joined CEO Robert Sillerman and other SFX members in ringing the closing bell of NASDAQ stock exchange in New York’s Times Square. He is the first DJ to ever ring the iconic bell. This honor also comes as part of a big week for the Dutch producer/DJ, who was the second DJ ever to be honored with participating in the handprint ceremony at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood earlier this week.
Speaking on ringing the closing bell, Afrojack said,
“It’s incredible to see how far this scene has come, from being fairly underground just five years ago, to being a billion dollar business today. It’s great to work with SFX and I wish them lots of luck with their venture.”
Afrojack will top this week off with release of his newest single, “The Spark,” tomorrow. Stream it below.
