Fresh off his rare back-to-back vinyl set with Armin van Buuren, veteran trance producer Ferry Corsten has announced a three-part livestream series as he celebrates 20 years in the industry. Titled Chronos, the series will find Corsten showcasing a trio of unique sets, allowing viewers to choose which journey the trance legend will take them on.
The first of these performances will take place on Friday, October 30th and will be a retrospective, featuring Corsten's early works. Fans tuned in to the broadcast will step back in time as they see the trance tastemaker reach into his extensive collection to play the music that has helped shape his career.
The second livestream will coincide with Corsten's birthday on Friday, December 4th. Viewers will have a front-row ticket to the celebration as the birthday boy spins his current favorite tracks.
