Above & Beyond Group Therapy 250 | Common Ground Tour | Photo Gallery

Every 50 weeks Above & Beyond holds Group Therapy. A beautiful experience that brings people from all over the world together for a night of uninhibited connecting. September 16th and 17th was no exception.

Twenty-Five thousand people came together to dance, sing along and cry to the amazing-ness that is Group Therapy.  As Luttrell, Yotto, Oliver Smith, Genix and Sunny Lax took our vitals, it was Above and Beyond with their signature sound and Seven Lions with his explosive feels that delivered a unparalleled therapy session and made it okay to let go and cry those deep happy tears.

Relive the experience through the lens of Fresh Music Freaks and if you haven’t seen it yet… watch the video of one of the most epic nights ever in trance music.

The new album, the follow up to 2015’s Grammy nominated “We Are All We Need”, will feature latest single “My Own Hymn” feat Zoë Johnston, as well as recently released fan favourite “Tightrope”. “My Own Hymn” received a rapturous response when Jono, Tony and Paavo dropped it at The Gorge, which was organised in celebration of 250 episodes of Above & Beyond’s hugely popular Group Therapy radio show, their 700th radio show overall.
The ABGT250 milestone event saw an all-star line up of artists from A&B’s Anjunabeats and Anjunadeep labels take to the stage, including Seven Lions and Jason Ross, Yotto, Luttrell, Genix & Sunny Lax, Oliver Smith, Moon Boots, Eli & Fur, 16 Bit Lolitas and Jody Wisternoff and James Grant.

“ABGT250 felt like the perfect occasion to tell everyone about our new album and The Gorge was the ideal location to host our first Group Therapy Weekender – we’re already plotting our return and want to say a special thank you to all the fans who created such a special atmosphere at ABGT250.” – Above & Beyond
