Wow! Tickets for The Best Of Armin Only on May 13 sold out in no time!

It is touching that the show sold out so quickly. Amazing that so many people want to celebrate this milestone of Armin Van Buuren 20 Years – The Best of Armin Only with me so eagerly.

This is the biggest my team and I have created in the past 20 years and I am really looking forward to it! We aim to make this the best show ever, and are doing everything in our power to make sure everyone will leave the Amsterdam ArenA with goose bumps.

Of course I want to give everyone the chance to be present, which is why an extra show on May 12 seemed more than fair.

Tickets are available NOW via

I hope to see you there!
