Armin van Buuren: Putting The World In A State Of Trance

Music

2012 marked Armin van Buuren’s return to the number one position on the DJ Mag Top 100, but it seems that in 2013 Armin van Buuren will be pushing the boundaries of electronic music even further.

Only the second electronic music act to headline New York’s legendary Madison Square Garden, Armin van Buuren furthered trance’s position in America by putting New York City’s “Trance Family” in “A State Of Trance.”

A State Of Trance, of course, is Armin van Buuren’s radio show — which, by the way, receives over 20 million listeners. In celebration of the 600th episode of A State Of Trance, Armin van Buuren brought his radio show on the road to a series of locations across the globe.

On Saturday, March 30, A State Of Trance 600 landed in New York City, bringing along New World Punx — the new explosive collaboration between legends Ferry Corsten and Markus Schulz, up-and-comers W&W and Alex M.O.R.P.H.

Madison Square Garden hosted 13,500 revelers that evening, but millions from around the world tuned in via the live broadcast of the event on A State Of Trance.

Prior to the groundbreaking show Elite Daily caught up with Armin van Buuren for a brief interview about the A State of Trance 600 world tour, maintaining his integrity as the popularity of trance music grows, the connecting and healing power of dance music, and his emphasis on staying humble in the face of his line of successes — which now includes a sold-out show at Madison Square Garden.

The DJ/Producer also clarified a question posed by many trance fans regarding A State of Trance and his warm-up sets, explaining that A State of Trance is comprised of “the best of trance and progressive,” and that his warm-up sets skew towards the progressive end of the spectrum.
