A State of Trance, Armin van Buuren’s highly respected brand, is officially heading to the United Kingdom for London’s biggest trance festival to date. A State of Trance will take place at the iconic Dockyards in the capital, London. Close to thirty trance heavyweights are slated to perform across 3 outdoor stages, most notably the festival will see performances by head honcho Armin van Buuren as well as Cosmic Gate, Gareth Emery and Vini Vici. With just six weeks to go, anticipation is growing ever bigger among artists and fans alike, as is reflected in the scarce amount of available tickets left.
Armin van Buuren has set out on a celebratory string of events across the globe honouring his mighty A State of Trance brand’s 20th anniversary. Having kicked off in Van Buuren’s native Holland in early March, where 55.000 visitors converged, the show continues with an enormous event in London. A State of Trance will be the largest trance event to take place in London’s history with an expected audience of 20.000 fans.
A State of Trance London will play host to a selection of trance music’s hottest acts as well as the odd stray into different genres. For Gareth Emery, inarguably one of the UK’s biggest trance exports, the show will be a home game. Emery just recently featured on Armin van Buuren’s album Feel Again with the track Forever & Always. Cosmic Gate, who were also featured on Feel Again and collaborated with Van Buuren on the A State of Trance 2023 anthem REFLEXION are set to perform as well. On a slightly different tip, MORTEN will make his first appearance at A State of Trance. The Danish DJ and producer shot to stardom through his extensive collaborations with David Guetta and his refreshing take on dance music. Last but not least, the man of the hour, Armin van Buuren will be leaving his mark on the city of London with a spectacular performance to celebrate his iconic brand’s 20th anniversary.
Additional noteworthy mentions on the line-up include Vini Vici, who’s release Great Spirit cemented their position as one of trance music’s most promising acts. In a similar fashion, ARGY’s recent Afterlife hit Pantheon also makes use of tribal vocals. Veteran cross-over DJ ARGY, has been around for over two decades, earning his stripes from Berghain’s Panorama Bar to Ibiza residencies at DC-10 and Amnesia. On the other end of the spectrum, Pretty Pink will be showcasing her signature deep house and nu-disco. The German DJ rose through the ranks to become one of the leading voices in her niche and one of Europe’s brightest acts.
