Armin Van Buuren Has Academy in a Trance: South Holland DJ and producer Armin van Buuren performs at the Academy on Thursday, at a show hosted by Dreamstate. The trance artist is promoting his eighth studio album — this year’s A State of Trance Forever.
Back in 2014, Daniel Kohn wrote for us: “He has brought trance and progressive house into the mainstream and is one of the most recognizable names and faces in the genre. The 37-year-old has been named the No. 1 DJ in the world by genre bible DJ Magazine five times, including four years in a row from 2007 to 2010 and again in 2012. Touring behind his latest collection, Intense, Van Buuren’s new show will see the DJ at his most theatrical, with acrobats, dancers and, yes, pyro. Van Buuren is one of the few DJs who has built up enough capital with his rabid fan base that he’ll be able to spin for more than five hours.”
See for yourself on Thursday.
Armin Van Buuren Has Academy in a Trance: The event takes place at 10 p.m. on Thursday, November 18 at the Academy.
