Armin van Buuren & Ferry Corsten announced that they would be celebrating A State of Trance’s (ASOT) monumental 1000th episode with a special b2b vinyl set on Thursday, Oct. 15 from 20.00 to 22.00 (CEST).  

The set will be performed in a special COVID-19 proof setting and streamed live via ASOT’s Twitch, YouTube, and VK channels, providing fans the opportunity to tune in and watch two of trance’s most seminal artists take a trip down memory lane. 

Armin van Buuren recently asked fans to vote for their favorite featured record of all time on the radio show via ASOT 1000 voting, which is scheduled to come to a monumental close the night of the live-stream.  

Celebration the milestone number of 1000 episodes means looking back as well, and I feel that the best way to do so is to play some vinyl again. I couldn’t think of anyone better to do this with than Ferry; it’s a great honor and I’m really excited for this to happen next week Thursday!”

Armin and I go way, way back. We went from frequently playing the same events in the late ‘90s to collaborating on several tracks over the course of the past twenty years. We were long due for a back-2-back set that takes us right back to the amazing moments we shared, especially since I started my residency at his A State Of Trance radio show earlier this year. And it only feels right to do it in a way that pays homage to those early days of our shared history: with vinyl!”
