After making an appearance in AMF 2020 with a unique DJ set, and coming in 4th position on the DJMag Top 100, Armin van Buuren is already getting ready for ASOT 1000, and this time with a special act.

The closing performance will be a special vinyl B2B with Ferry Corsten. This is not the first time both artists share the decks for a vinyl set. Last one being in October when both Trance legends did a played for ASOT 986. This happened as a celebration to closing out the A State Of Trance 1000 voting period. 

The B2B with Ferry is fitting, as he started his residency at the ASOT radio show a few months ago. The two rose to fame in the late 1990s, often playing at the same events, and have collaborated on several tracks over the past 20 years. 

Rumors are also circulating about a possible Tiësto appearance, but it’s far from being confirmed. Having Ferry, Armin, and Tiësto in ASOT1000 would be a dream coming true for trance fans. It was this trio who trail-blazed in the trance scene and elevated it to international popularity. 

What to expect

We do not know yet if there will be an ASOT 1000 celebration, and if so, under what format. No event is visible today on ASOT’S website. And seeing the COVID situation in Europe, the best thing fans can hope for is a Livestream.

The last time an ASOT celebration took place was back in February for A State of Trance 950 in Utrecht. who knew back then that the world would become what it has become today.

While we wait for more news, watch Armin’s AMF 2020 Set, his ASOT 986 b2b Set, and as a bonus, Armin’s and Ferry’s collaboration from 20 years ago.
