GIANLUCA VACCHI 29th July & 12th August @ BCM MALLORCA
Entrepreneur; social media star; DJ; producer; Gianluca Vacchi is a man who triumphs
whatever he puts his hands to. His athletic, hedonistic, daredevil playboy antics on social
media made him a star whose charisma people were naturally drawn to, and after amassing
an enormous following he decided to follow his dreams in music. Having made his passion
and commitment for music clear by announcing the launch of his DJ and production career,
he has quickly become a major force in the music industry — and he’s only just getting
Heir to a huge packaging and processing company, Gianluca’s hedonistic, fun-loving antics
have made him a huge star on social media in recent years, with over 11 million Instagram
followers glued to his fantasy lifestyle. Describing himself as a ‘global entertainer’, he began
working in the family business at 25 and after 20 years of excelling in business, he decided to
make a change. “At 45 I realised that the world didn’t have anything to give me anymore. I’m
not interested in accumulating money at all any more, I’m only interested in what’s moving
my curiosity.” That’s when the real fun started.
Whether he’s performing a dance routine to one of his favourite tracks, hanging out with his
celebrity friends, showing off his impressive physique and love of tattoos, looking sharp in
his flamboyant outfits or performing outlandish feats on one of incredible collection of
motorbikes, there’s never a dull moment in his life. His positive, fun-loving attitude and
natural charisma have made him a huge force on social media, and his pursuit of his passions
means that music was an inevitable path for him to follow. Especially after being invited to
feature in the huge music video for the massive hit “Mi Gente” by his good friends J Balvin
and Willy William.
Partnering with Spinnin’ Records — the world’s biggest dance music label — he brought the
mighty “Trump-It” and “Viento”, showing a real talent for choosing the right collaborators
and creating anthemic tracks with memorable hooks together. His flair and electric
personality were perfectly personified in these first two singles, making them the musical
embodiment of the fun-loving vibe that he stands for. With over 40 million plays for these
first two efforts, it’s clear that he’s heading for very big things indeed.
Now signed to the massive Universal Latin-America — one of the most successful artist
rosters in the history of Latin-American music — his status as a recording artist is being
catapulted into the stratosphere. Many exciting collaborations are planned with his highprofile
celebrity and musician friends, with his first single for the label, ‘LOVE’, featuring
Latino star Sebastian Yatra and production from “Despacito” hitmakers, Andres Torres &
Mauricio Rengifo. With the release of “Sigamos Bailando”last year, in collaboration with
Latin pop superstars Luis Fonsi and Yandel, he is being recognized globally as one to watch.
His VIBRA summer residency at Ibiza’s prestigious Amnesia in 2018 made him part of the
island’s illustrious history by bringing Ibiza its first ever electro-Latin party. Featuring live acts
and DJs spinning alongside Vacchi himself, the events were packed with spectacular
production, dancers, pyrotechnics and more. It was just another exciting step in Vacchi’s
incredible empire-building in dance music.
His DJ career has been rapidly building, with gigs
everywhere from the Amsterdam Dance Event to Dubai, and tours of South American and
Europe. The start of 2019 marks another highlight for him: his own residency in Las Vegas.
