Armin van Buuren
Armin van Buuren has been named number one in the prestigious DJ MAG Top 100 poll four times in a row, from 2007 till 2010 and for the 5th time in 2012. He's the first DJ in the history of the DJ Magazine to achieve that and an indication of his prolific output over more than 14 years he's been dj'ing and producing. Being the official World's Most Popular DJ is just one of his many achievements, but the driving force behind his success is an overriding passion for dance music. 2008 began with the success that the number one DJ seems to attract; he was awarded with the prestigious Buma Cultuur Pop Award in January. ...show more

Being the official World's Most Popular DJ is just one of his many achievements, but the driving force behind his success is an overriding passion for dance music. 2008 began with the success that the number one DJ seems to attract; he was awarded with the prestigious Buma Cultuur Pop Award in January.
This was followed by being voted as the Best Trance Artist in the Beatport Music Awards in March; judged on the musician's artistic achievements, national and international success, it is evident that Armin van Buuren has become one of the decade's most influential trance acts. Even a basic list of recent successes reads like a lifetime of work: 'Best Album' for artist album 'Shivers' at both the Dutch Release Dance Awards and the prestigious Edison Awards; 'Best Compilation' for 'A State Of Trance', in 2006, claiming the 'Best European DJ' award in 2007 and 'Best Mix Radio Show' at the Miami Winter Music Conference in 2006 and 2007, for radio show 'A State Of Trance' - now broadcasting on a massive 40 FM stations as well as satellite and internet radio, with over 26 million listeners a week; a 5th year residency in Ibiza at Amnesia and over 50,000 downloads every week from podcasting high end chart-bothering positions all over the world for singles, albums and compilations , with single "Rush Hour" used as the theme tune to the UEFA European Youth Championship; the #1 entry in the Dutch album charts with his artist album 'Imagine', the #1 entry of the DVD registration of 'Armin Only ' Imagine' - the landmarks just keep coming! The 350th episode and the 7th year of the hit radio show 'A State of Trance' was celebrated in May 2008 with an eight hour live broadcast from Antwerp in Belgium to over 40 radio stations internationally. Fans were invited to a free party with a line up that had been voted for by the show's listeners; another example of the importance the DJ places on the satisfaction of his fans. Considering the popularity of the radio show the introduction of 'A State of Trance Podcast' was a natural progression.
The weekly podcasts which contain highlights and Armin's favourite tracks from the previous episode ensure that trance lovers across the world will never miss another episode! Sold-out shows for Armin Only in 2005 and 2006 created eager anticipation of the third edition, which kicked off in a sold-out Jaarbeurs in Utrecht in 2008; over 16,000 fans attended and were enthralled by the DJ's nine hour set. The theme of the night was 'Imagine', described by Armin as "the celebration of our sensations both in life and in clubland." Fans all around the world should not despair, as 'Armin Only' tour dates have also been set for Romania, Poland, Belgium and Australia; the DJ will also be touring in England, Scotland, Ibiza, Brazil, Mexico, Canada, and the USA, with expected dates in, for an example, the Czech Republic. Born in Leiden, Holland (on December 25, 1976) to a musical family, Armin indulged his passion for music from a young age. He spent all the money he earned with his paper round on records. ...show less
