On January 22nd 2011, the people of Lebanon united in peace and love at the seminal music event in the country’s history: Armin Only Mirage! 18.000 people gathered together for a night of unrelenting highlights. People from the whole Middle East region, Egypt, Dubai, Jordan, Paris and farther away such as London, Canada and even Australia gathered side by side with the Lebanese fans to celebrate the biggest ever music event in the Middle East.
The 9 hour DJ set by Armin van Buuren featured glittering star appearances by Sophie Ellis Bextor, Susana, Christian Burns, Nadia Ali, Ana Criado, Cathy Burton, Benno de Goeij, a full orchestra and Eller van Buuren’s rockband Bagga Bownz.
Mix FM, Lebanon’s Number 1 Hit Radio Station, worked for over 4 months to make sure every detail was perfectly covered and executed the largest campaign ever in the Middle East for a concert. Roger Saad, CEO: ‘I wanna thank everyone involved for giving Lebanon the most amazing night to remember for years to come. Thank you to the people of Lebanon and the region, for attending in their thousands. Their love for life and strength of spirit made this event the biggest event for the Middle East and gave the world a chance to see what Lebanon and its people are truly made of!’
