In the second half, and at 7 pm, Armin van Buuren took us to when the real ADE party. The lineup consisted of the man himself Armin van Buuren, Ruben de Ronde, Mark Sixma, Vini Vici, and a special B2B with Armin van Buuren & Vini Vici. This last B2B was quite short but as crazy and energetic as anyone would expect. We would love to see more of it in future lineups.
