It takes little to recognize that Armin van Buuren is one of the world’s biggest DJs and producers in electronic music for over twenty years. His life-long dedication to the scene has earned him a Grammy® nomination for ‘This Is What It Feels Like’ (feat. Trevor Guthrie), saw him release global hit singles such as ‘Another You’, ‘I Need You’, ‘I Need You’, ‘Sunny Days’, ‘Sex, Love & Water, ‘Therapy’ and ‘Blah Blah Blah’, and helped him claim the number one spot in the annual DJ Mag Top 100 DJs poll for an unprecedented five times, contributing to the sixteen consecutive top 5 spots to date (the most recent being a #3 in the DJ Mag Top 100 DJs poll of 2017).
His two-hour radio show, A State of Trance (ASOT), is broadcast weekly from his own radio studio in the Armada HQ to over 40 million listeners in more than 80 countries, as well as online via audio and video live stream on YouTube and Facebook. It shows the magnitude of ASOT, which has grown from a small radio show into a complete dance music brand, with stages and events all over the world.
Armin van Buuren has launched several ‘Armin Only’ world tours throughout the years, including the ones based on his albums (‘Imagine’ in 2008, ‘Mirage’ in 2010, and ‘Intense’ in 2013). His most recent world tour, ‘Armin Only Embrace’, is directly tied to the ‘Embrace’ album, his sixth and latest artist album. In 2017, Armin van Buuren played his biggest solo shows to date: ‘The Best Of Armin Only’ in the Amsterdam ArenA, the Netherlands on May 12th and May 13th.
