Armin receives honorary citizen pin by city of Leiden!

Tonight, Armin received a very special something from the city of Leiden, his hometown. The mayor, Henri Lenferink, has given him the Leiden honorary citizen pin! The pin is granted to Armin for being an excellent ambassador for Leiden, making an outstanding contribution to the city and its inhabitants, as well as its image.

The major and aldermen praise Armin for his commitment in getting the Glazen Huis to Leiden in 2011 and for his free Queensday party each year, which attracts thousands of people from outside the city. Leiden is also the place where Armin started his career in music, playing the local discotheque of Nexus, while studying for his Law degree at Leiden University.

We’d like to congratulate Armin with this incredible honour!
