Armin Van Burren took his “A State of Trance” expedition to Madison Square Garden NY for the night. On March 30th 2013 the Garden’s arena filled with thousands of EDM lovers for a spectacular show with some of the world’s best DJ’s and talents, part of the world tour that celebrates the 600th episode of the Dutch DJ’s A State of Trance radio show.
What is A State of Trance? The New York show is a part of the ‘A State of Trance 600 – The Expedition’ world tour. In February, March and April, Armin celebrates the 600th episode of his A State of Trance radio show with a world tour bigger than he’s ever done before. The radio show, broadcast through more than 62 radio stations in 52 countries worldwide, has an average amount of 20 million listeners each week. Since the announcement in October, the Dutch DJ has revealed 11 dates and cities in which ‘The Expedition’ tour will take place. 7 of the editions will be broadcast live, interacting with and uniting millions of listeners from all across the globe, through multi-digital techniques.

Being the No. 1 DJ in the world comes with a certain level of confidence. For Armin van Buuren, it’s that self-assurance that keeps all the gears — the weekly radio show with millions of listeners worldwide, the countless DJ gigs, the top-level stage productions and artist albums — in motion.
“I don’t try to be someone I’m not — I’ve always followed my heart and trance has always been my main sound,” a fresh-faced van Buuren told HuffPost Entertainment in the first of his many Saturday afternoon interviews at a posh New York nightclub. Later that night, the 36-year-old DJ would headline Madison Square Garden, where he, Ferry Corsten and Markus Schulz, W&W and Alex M.O.R.P.H. brought A State of Trance 600 to thousands of eager ravers. (The “600” means the show had reached its 600th episode. It’s a weekly program, so do the math.)

“At this point in my life, it seems like the less harder I try, the more easy it gets,” he said. “I’m Armin van Buuren, and this is who I am.”
