Armin van Buuren extends contract with Radio 538

Hilversum, April 30th, 2014 – Armin van Buuren will be on Radio 538 with his weekly show, A State of Trance, for at least two more years. During King’s Day (a major Dutch holiday and celebration), the DJ signed a new contract shortly before his performance in Breda.

Dance music has had enormous developments over the last several years and is now larger than ever.  Radio 538 has always connected with the most popular DJs in the scene, and the company is proud to extend its collaboration with one of the most successful DJs in the world.

Since 2011 the successful DJ has had his A State Of Trance program broadcast on Radio 538 every Friday night from 11PM to 1AM. He has signed a new contract cementing his weekly show through 2016.

‘Armin is not only one of the best club DJs in the world, but he’s also a fantastic radio DJ! How he brings his passion for dance music across to our listeners is a joy to listen to every week.’ - Dave Minneboo, Program Director Radio 538

‘Radio 538 has given me complete freedom to fill my show with the newest and greatest trance, electro, and progressive house, every Friday night.  Because I play a lot in other countries, I’ve got my finger on the pulse of new releases and the biggest hits on the floor. It gives me a lot of confidence that Radio 538 once again wants to continue with the concept, and it motivates me to go even further with it!’ – Armin van Buuren
