Trance icon Armin van Buuren is nothing short of a phenomenon. His weekly A State Of Trance radio show is currently broadcast on stations in over 26 different countries to around 20 million listeners and he regularly headlines the biggest clubs and electronic music festivals in the world.
While other DJs have moved away from trance in recent years, van Buuren has remained true to his roots - always pushing the genre forward and supporting new talent.
His recent celebrations of ASOT’s 600th episode have seen the DJ play huge gigs everywhere from Miami to Mexico City, Moscow, Mumbai, Guatemala and beyond. And with the recent release of his new album Intense, plus a summer schedule packed with huge headline sets, things are showing no sign of slowing down.
