Armin van Buuren has never been one to shy away from the moment. With Amsterdam Dance Event now in full swing, AVB took to the skies to make a very special announcement. With only a select few in attendance, Armin performed on a platform that was raised high in the air by a crane to announce the theme for this year’s A State of Trance 900 celebration.
Each year, Armin raises the level of the celebration higher and higher. Last year’s theme was “Be In The Moment”. This year, the theme, as you can tell, is “Lifting You Higher”. The announcement was recorded high up in the air for all to see.
Along with that announcement, AVB revealed various locations and dates for the ASOT 900 celebrations. On February 23rd, Utrecht will play host to the first ASOT. On March 3rd, the show will move to Madrid for a special night. And finally, on June 23rd, ASOT 900 will go to Kiev, Ukraine. Funny enough, Armin did not mention Ultra Miami– something to keep an eye on.
Before finishing his magical mini-set high in the sky, AVB made one final announcement. He revealed the first act to be joining him in Utrecht will be none other than Above & Beyond. A&B last played an international ASOT show back in 2011 for ASOT 500 in Den Bosch.
It’s always exciting to have big news come out. With ADE going strong, we expect more big announcements coming during the week. In the meantime, check out the video of Armin in the sky below.
