V.I.P: VERY IMPORTANT PARTY
Trance King, Armin van Buuren, has announced he will be headline the biggest and best New Year's Eve party in NYC, Joonbug.com's NYE extravaganza at Pier 36! No bond is stronger than that of the Trance
Fam circle and Armin is sure to deliver a galvanizing performance.
Van Buuren made the official announcement at LAVO NYC while spinning for DJ Mag’s Top 100 Party. The crowd went wild further proving that this is truly going to be one hell of an epic NYE. Van Buuren needs
little introduction after being voted #1 DJ on DJ Mag’s Top 100 poll five times total including four years in a row from 2007-2010 and yet again in 2012.
Producing music for over 14-years, the Dutch trance sensation has been hosting his weekly radio show A State Of Trance (ASOT) since 2001, which has won ‘Best Mix Radio Show’ at the Miami Winter Music
Conference 5 years in a row which is broadcasted on a massive 40 FM stations as well as satellite and internet radio, with over 25 million listeners a week. His third solo album, "Imagine" soared the Dutch
album Top 100 chart to # 1, a first for a dance producer in the history of Dutch music to accomplish. Armin has headlined at major music festivals including Ultra, EDC New York, and toured across the
globe for his ASOT 500 shows and will embark on another ASOT 600 tour within the next year, with a stop in NYC as well!
Nothing short of a dedicated trance lover, van Buuren isn’t confined by a single genre, saying “What makes trance work so well is that it doesn’t stick to one style, and can incorporate electro, minimal, whatever it likes.”
Fans will be blown away by this momentous and phenomenal event to hit NYC in years and there's no better way to spend a New Year's Eve than amidst the progressive and trance sounds of Mr. Armin van Buuren.
