Armin van Buuren has announced A State of Trance (ASOT) festival 2021.
Last year, live on the 5-hour long, 1000th episode of van Buuren's ASOT radio show, the trance icon announced that ASOT 1000 would be taking place in 2021, and for the first and only time, would extend to a two-show celebration weekender.
The first show will take place on Saturday 3rd September, at ASOT's usual home of Jaarbeurs in Utrecht, before a second performance on the 4th September. Each show will take place under the same umbrella theme, Turn the World Into a Dancefloor, with Saturday's showcase paying tribute to twenty years of ASOT, and Sunday's event "looking forward" to ASOT's future.
ASOT 1000 follows on from the huge 2019 edition of the festival, which sold out in six weeks in advance and saw 35,000 fans descend on the city, and last year's ASOT 950: Let The Music Guide You.
In order to gain access to the exclusive fan pre-sale that starts on 28th January at 1PM CET, register before midnight on the 27th January via https://festival.astateoftrance.com/register. Regular tickets go on sale on the 30th January at 1PM CET.
Earlier this month, Armin van Buuren revealed the top 1000 A State of Trance (ASOT) tracks list ahead of the 1000th episode of the namesake radio show, which the Dutch DJ and producer hosts alongside Ruben de Ronde. As fans would expect from such an expansive selection, there are familiar faces, genre icons and curveballs aplenty. M.I.K.E., Paul van Dyk, Ferry Corsten (who holds a monthly residency on the ASOT show), BT, Above & Beyond, BT, Rank 1, London Grammar, Cass & Slide, Bedrock, Sasha and 16 Bit Lolitas all feature.
