Armin van Buuren Hits Over 50 million Fans with 1000th Episode of A State Of Trance Radio Show

Armin van Buuren has made history with the broadcast of his 1000th episode of his A State Of Trance radio show. During the historic, five-hour-long episode, which reached over 50 million fans from 121 different countries together with the seven-day-long countdown stream, the five-time DJ in the world launched the official anthem for ASOT 1000 (reach divided over 100 radio staions, YouTube, Twitch, Facebook and VK livestreams). He also unveiled the top 50 of the fan-voted ASOT Top 1000 and even revealed his plans for a full-blown ASOT 1000 weekend taking place in September this year, all throughout a special, five-hour-long milestone episode fans will remember for a long time to come.

The ASOT 1000 anthem

With a nod of acknowledgement to the previous ASOT anthems, Armin van Buuren’s official hymn for ASOT 1000 echoes the all-encompassing message that has been at the heart of A State Of Trance from the off. From the mesmerizing piano tones in the heart-stirring breakdown to the gated synths and melodies that radiate nothing but pure and uplifting emotion, this record does exactly what Armin van Buuren envisioned since he started with the show in 2001: to ‘Turn The World Into A Dancefloor’.

The A State Of Trance Top 1000

After kicking off the milestone episode of A State Of Trance with the official anthem, Armin van Buuren also counted down from number 50 to number 1 of the A State Of Trance Top 1000, a list of the most popular ASOT-played records of all time based on the votes of the show’s fan base. The honor of becoming number one in the A State Of Trance Top 1000 befell to Armin van Buuren’s 2005 single ‘Shivers’. Susana, the vocalist whose voice takes center stage on the globally beloved classic, was invited into the show to celebrate this special moment.
