A State Of Trance fans, rejoice: ASOT1000 Festival is officially moving forward in 2021.

In celebration of the landmark 1,000th episode of the historic A State Of Trance radio show, the world's biggest trance festival is set to make its grand return in Utrecht for twin concerts in late September 2021. The highly anticipated news was announced on the episode live today by trance music legend Armin van Buuren.

The unprecedented two-show run for the ASOT 1000 celebration will kick off on September 3rd with a concert that pays tribute to 20 years of A State of Trance with special guest appearances, according to a press release issued by organizers. The second show, slated for September 4th, is being promoted as more of a familiar festival experience in line with previous ASOT events due to its underlying "Turn the World Into a Dancefloor" theme.
