Mark Zuckerberg David Guetta Punta del Este Uruguay

The Prince & The DJ: Global mixmasters Zuckerberg and Guetta both celebrate summer in Punta del Este

Susana Gimenez, Jean Claude Van Damme, Pamela Anderson, the Wayans Brothers… there was a time when summer vacations in Punta del Este only attracted celebrities who were a.) completely irrelevant to anyone outside of Argentina, b.) a few decades past their prime or c.) celebrities entre comillas.

All that changed yesterday with the arrival of two bona fide celebrities who have touched the lives of millions worldwide: Mark Zuckerberg and David Guetta. The Facebook Co-Founder and the world’s number one House DJ both arrived in Uruguay yesterday for Punta del Este vacations and gigs, respectively.

After ringing in the New Year in Florianopolis, Zuckerberg arrived Monday with his girlfriend, Priscilla Chan, seven friends and an entourage including chefs, assistants and bodyguards. According to El Pais’ Viviana Ruggiero, the group is renting the local home of a US executive. Prior to arrival, the home was furnished and cleaned according to their specifications.

Global DJ and top producer David Guetta also touched down yesterday in advance of tonight’s sold out show at El Jaguel. The 44-year old Frenchman and two-time Grammy winner is touring to promote his current release, Nothing But The Beat. A crowd of 20,000 are expected to watch him close out the Movistar Free Music series which began with BA performances by Jane’s Addiction, Interpol and Inspiral Carpets. Most importantly, Movistar is donating half of tonight’s proceeds to an orphanage in nearby Maldonado. (Full Story in Spanish)
