Armin wins 5 International Dance Music Awards!

Excitement in Miami rises to great heights, even before Armin van Buuren’s A State of Trance 600 show at Ultra Music Festival has kicked off. Last night, the Dutch DJ received 5 International Dance Music Awards, for ‘Best Global DJ’, ‘Best Radio Mix Show DJ’, ‘Best Producer’ and more. Armada Music, the label of which Armin is co-founder, won the prestigious award for ‘Best Global Record Label’ for the fifth year in a row, a perfect crown to its 10 year anniversary year.

The ‘Best Trance Track’ IDMA was awarded for Armin’s knock-out tune ‘J’ai Envie De Toi’, a big summerhit in 2012. The IDMA for ‘Best Radio Mix Show DJ’ makes a great compliment to the world’s number one DJ, who’s currently celebrating the 600th episode of his A State of Trance radio show with an extensive world tour. Other important IDMA’s won include ‘Best Producer’, ‘Best Global DJ’ and ‘Best Podcast’ for the official A State of Trance Podcast.

This Sunday, March 24th, Armin closes the second weekend of Ultra Music Festival with the 9th show of his A State of Trance 600 ‘The Expedition’ world tour. The entire show will be broadcast live via www.astateoftrance.com. Next week, the tour touches down in New York’s Madison Square Garden, to close down with the (sold out) grand finale in Armin’s home country the Netherlands, in Den Bosch on April 6th.
