A State of Trance 500 dates and cities announced!

Wonderful news for the true trance addict! As Armin van Buurens radioshow ‘A State of Trance’ (ASOT) celebrates its 500th broadcast, Alda Events launches a big party the 9th of April. The most popular danceminded radioshow worldwide exists for ten years now and has grown to over 10 million listeners in 26 countries weekly.  Obviously this milestone needs a celebration and a small one would not do justice to the success. That is why the huge Brabanthallen in Dutch city Den Bosch will be put to use for the largest trance event worldwide!

Armin: “I am very proud and happy with the 500th edition of the show. The way trance sounds today differs from ten years ago, but it has preserved the same feeling. Trance has evolved over the years.  Nowadays trance is influenced by other styles like techno, minimal and techhouse.  It is nice to have experienced this development and we will celebrate trance in the biggest way possible! Since we make ASOT the fans, we felt they should be able to give their input on the line-up. For a period of one month, our listeners were given the opportunity to suggest DJ’s for the five events of ASOT. The result is a program with a wide range in variety of artists, not only specialized in pure trance but also progressive, tech-trance and uplifting trance. And off course the classic sound will not be left out! All live registrations of the five editions are to be viewed on special internet channels.”

Line-up

People regularly listening to ASOT know Armin is well informed on the latest releases in trance and trance related styles. For his radioshow Armin keeps a close eye on new developments. Therefore he is one of the first to know about promising DJ’s and live-acts that deserve attention in Holland. So even though the line-up of ASOT is a secret for the time being, it does not come as a surprise some very talented artists will be on stage next to known headliners.

ASOT500 World Tour

After last years successful tour of the 450th edition, for 2011 an even larger world tour is scheduled. This time literally based on the magic number ‘5’. Within five weeks, five cities on five continents are visited by ASOT. Those who are not able to travel the world do not have to miss out on anything as all five of the editions will be broadcast live on air.

These editions have been scheduled and confirmed:

19-3: South-Africa (Johannesburg)
26-3: United States (Miami)
2-4: Argentina (Buenos Aires)
