In honor of A State of Trance’s 20th anniversary, the festival will be making its first-ever stop in London’s historic Dockyards on July 2. Armin van Buuren, ARGY, Ben Gold, Cosmic Gate, Gareth Emery, MORTEN, Pretty Pink, Solarstone, and Vini Vici, just to mention a few, will all be performing at this historic event, which will be the largest trance festival in the UK to date.
London Armin van Buuren’s illustrious A State of Trance brand is finally coming to London for the city’s largest trance event to date. The historic London Docklands will host A State of Trance. Nearly thirty trance superstars are scheduled to play across three outdoor stages, including festival director Armin van Buuren, Cosmic Gate, Gareth Emery, and Vini Vici. The limited number of tickets still available reflects the rising excitement among performers and spectators with just six weeks to go.
Armin van Buuren has begun a world tour to celebrate the 20th anniversary of his massive A State of Trance brand. The tour began in early March in Van Buuren’s home Holland, drawing in excess of 55,000 attendees, and will continue with a massive concert in London. With 20,000 people scheduled to attend, A State of Trance will be the biggest trance event ever held in London.
Trance-like Condition Some of the most exciting names in trance music, with the occasional foray into other styles, will perform in London. Gareth Emery, undoubtedly one of the United Kingdom’s greatest trance exporters, will be performing at home. Forever & Always, which Emery contributed to, can be found on Armin van Buuren’s latest album, Feel Again. Also performing is Cosmic Gate, who appeared on Feel Again and worked with Van Buuren on the REFLEXION theme song for A State of Trance 2023. MORTEN, on a somewhat different note, will be performing for the first time at A State of Trance. The Danish DJ and producer catapulted to fame because to his innovative perspective on dance music and his frequent work with David Guetta. Armin van Buuren, the man of the hour, will round up the festivities commemorating the 20th anniversary of his legendary label with a magnificent concert in the heart of London.
Among the other notable names on the bill is Vini Vici, whose breakthrough album Great Spirit established them as one of the genre’s most exciting newcomers. Similarly, tribal voices may be heard in ARGY’s most recent Afterlife smash song, Pantheon. After two decades in the business, veteran crossover DJ ARGY has earned residencies at DC-10 and Amnesia in Ibiza in addition to Berghain’s Panorama Bar. Pretty Pink, on the other hand, will perform the deep house and nu-disco that have become her trademarks. The German DJ has risen to prominence, becoming a prominent figure in her field and a shining star throughout Europe.
