Armin Van Buuren Breaks Spotify Record

The Dutch legend trails One Direction on Spotify's playlist chart

The king of trance has done it again - Armin Van Buuren now has the second most streamed artist playlist on Spotify, trailing closely behind pop sensation One Direction.  His A State of Trance playlist on Spotify just breached the 200,000 followers mark, making him the first EDM act to reach this epic milestone. The playlist includes tracks from trance veterans like Above & Beyond but also rising producers like Shogun and Andrew Rayel, and of course many tracks from the Dutch legend himself.

Armin is no stranger to success at this caliber. His popular anthem, “This Is What It Feels Like,” was certified platinum seven times and was nominated for the 2013 Best Dance Recording Grammy Award. His latest album, Anthems, has done incredibly well and includes 20 of his tracks, which were each voted on by his fans. Earlier this year, he held Armin Only, a tour that ran from May through October. He played 20 shows in 19 cities, all of which sold out. If you missed the chance to see him perform this year, you’ve got a few more opportunities before 2015 hits. Head to his website to see if he’s playing in a city near you.

Another day, another milestone. Congratulations Armin!
