This past week has marked a monumental milestone in the world of trance music. Armin van Buuren’s radio show, A State of Trance has hit its 1000th episode — an achievement that deserves nothing more than massive celebration. And this historical moment received just that.
Leading up to the milestone event, ASOT broadcasted a seven-day-long countdown of the Top 1000 Trance Tunes ever! This countdown, along with the five-hour celebration on Thursday, January 21st had reached over 50 million fans across 121 different countries. During this special broadcast, Armin and his team unveiled the Top 50 Trance Tunes and the ASOT 1000 Anthem.
This episode had fans dancing the whole way through, which did exactly what Armin van Buuren envisioned since he started the radio show in 2001: to ‘Turn The World Into A Dancefloor’. Dancing wasn’t all we were doing while watching from home, we were cheering with joy when Armin announced the dates of the ASOT 1000 Celebration Weekend!
With such a huge achievement, comes an even bigger celebration. This year, we will be having a one-time-only two-show ASOT weekend! The weekend will kick off on Friday, September 3rd with a show that pays tribute to twenty years of A State Of Trance. The second show on Saturday, September 4th is a more “usual” celebration of ASOT in line with the previous milestone celebrations and is meant to have fans looking forward to all that’s still to come for A State Of Trance.
