These three events perfectly represent the international character of the radioshow. During these nights, of course Armin van Buuren will be dj’ing, but he will also encourage some of his colleagues to play there.

The 400th show, during all three events, will be live broadcasted through 40 worldwide FM radiostations. For this special occasion, all free to follow on www.astateoftrance.com

Armin van Buuren: “In the meantime, it’s become a tradition to yearly celebrate this with a big party and broadcast it across the globe. The 400th episode and 8th birthday of A State of Trance will be bigger and more spectacular than ever before. The party starts in Germany on April 16th, where the radioshow has just been picked up by Sunshine Live, then moves on to UK on April 17th and will eventually see the great final in the Netherlands on April 18th. Trance is something which is greatly sought after and has just as big a status and fan base as any other style within today’s music. To celebrate this, I asked the listeners about their DJ heroes, of which most of them are able to spin a set at one of the three locations. Of course, all the sets will be broadcasted as much as possible through the radio and internet stations. Since radio is still for free, the entrance fee will again be kept as low as possible to give as many people as possible the opportunity to be a part of this.“
