Armin van Buuren describes the origin of "Armin Only" as stemming from his desire to play longer sets and to control the overall mood and atmosphere of the night. He says by doing this, he could be more creative and thus show a more diverse side of himself. The trance icon has now released the epic three-hour show that was 'The Best Of Armin Only' which premiered at the Johan Cruijff ArenA in Amsterdam.

The three-hour performance takes the viewer on a journey through Armin's 20-year career. If you are looking for a trip down memory lane look no further. You can feel the love and connection he has with his fans. It jumps off the screen. From the video description: 

"Two years ago, everything just came together at the Johan Cruijff Arena in Amsterdam. The artists I’ve worked with, my sweet fans and my wonderful family, friends, and colleagues were all there for a unique show that means the world to me, both personally and as a career milestone. As a thank you for all of your amazing, undying support, I’d like to share with you the amazing journey that was ‘The Best Of Armin Only’."
