When asked by one of his fans, five-time No. 1 DJ in DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs poll, Armin van Buuren has described Paul van Dyk’s fall and subsequent hospitalization as the toughest challenge of his career. The German Grammy Award winner Paul van Dyk had taken a serious fall at the “A State of Trance 750” stage in Utrecht, Holland, where he apparently misstepped and plummeted from the stage.
In an interview with asQme, Armin van Buuren continued he did not go on to play his exclusive vinyl only set in front of thousands of fans who had purchased a ticket for the event. The DJ explained canceling at that time was the most difficult decision he has ever had to make. While he was then apprehensive of Paul van Dyk’s recovery, he was now relieved at the news of van Dyk’s recovery and his plans of setting electronic music shows on fire.
