The biggest trance festival in the world, A State of Trance (ASOT) has officially revealed the date for its eagerly awaited ASOT 950 festival. The trendsetting brand has become iconic in the industry as a purveyor of the finest trance on offer. Set to take place on 15th February 2020, ASOT festival is primed to return in phenomenal style, as trance fans around the globe prepare to descend on the Jaarbeurs once again. This edition marks the penultimate step in the Road To 1000 series, as ASOT counts down to the celebration of its 1000th episode.
Brand new for 2020, ASOT will offer Weekend Experience Tickets, where fans will be able to attend the Pre-Party in Amsterdam on 14 February as well at the main festival in Utrecht the following day. Fans are now able to have the ultimate ASOT experience and party two days in a row, making ASOT 950 the most exciting edition of the festival yet.
For the first time ever Armin van Buuren himself will perform a special show opening, and access will be exclusively granted to Loyalty and Early Bird ticket holders. Expectations are exceedingly high, and the set is anticipated to be a monumental show that will be the perfect kick-off for the main festival in Utrecht, as well as one of the main highlights of the weekend. The theme for ASOT 950 is yet to be revealed, but fans can expect plenty of huge announcements in the coming months.
Last year ASOT broke records as 35,000 trance enthusiasts descended on the Jaarbeurs as Armin van Buuren celebrated ASOT 900 in style. Performers included British trance trio Above & Beyond, dynamic duo Cosmic Gate and psy-trance icons Vini Vici plus many more artists across several stages. Each stage explored a different realm of the trance genre, offering performances that catered to the taste of every fan. Having captivated crowds last year with an all-star selection of artists, expectations are incredibly high ahead of this year’s edition of ASOT Utrecht.
Travel package buyers last year were able to experience the incredible pre-party which was held aboard the Ocean Diva boat. Lucky attendees witnessed exceptional performances from trance icons while sailing around Amsterdam and enjoying the sights. The atmosphere on the boat was electric, and speculation is already rife about ASOT 950’s Amsterdam pre-party, as the exact location and time are yet to be announced. As always, fans can expect a huge show that will provide the perfect warm up for the festival the following day.
Having built a reputation as the world’s leading trance brand, ASOT continues to expand its influence globally. The weekly radio show, hosted by Armin van Buuren and Ruben de Ronde, has become iconic within the electronic music industry as a platform for the greatest past, present and future trance anthems. Further cementing its position as one of the most prolific brands in the world, ASOT Festival increases its influence every single year, expanding and surpassing expectations with every edition.
Tickets for ASOT 950 will go on sale on 12 September, but those who subscribe between 5-12 September will get early access to discounted Early Bird and Weekend Experience tickets. Travel & hotel packages will also go on sale, which offer fans the opportunity to have the full ASOT experience. These packages also include access to the special pre-party on 14th February and transfers for both nights. Tickets are expected to sell quickly, with last year’s edition of ASOT Festival having sold out six weeks in advance.
