A State of Trance meets Electronic Family

June 17, 2011

Electronic Family’s A State Of Trance stage is a celebration of the unforgettable ASOT500 continental tour earlier this year. All friends, acquaintances and relatives will be present and correct.

The ASOT stage is part of the Electronic Family festival on July 30th. The stage will see Alex M.O.R.P.H., Aly & Fila, Gabriel & Dresden, Leon Bolier, Rank 1, Setrise, Sied van Riel and Simon Patterson acting as your personal musical guides through the woods of trance for the day.

The grand finale for the A State Of Trance stage is a spectacular musical fireworks show, helmed by ASOT’s one and only Armin van Buuren. During this 1.5 hour back-to-back set, Armin will share the stage with Ferry Corsten, Markus Schulz and Gareth Emery. These four globally acknowledged DJs will switch stages for a little while to soundtrack the fireworks together.

Armin van Buuren recently did a five-week world tour with celebratory stops in Johannesburg, Miami, Buenos Aires, Den Bosch and Sydney. Electronic Family is the first trance festival in the world of this size, in which many of the A-list DJmag Top 100 DJs will be gathering around for a sunny trance tribute. The eight names that are on the ASOT stage line-up pretty much all feature in this prestigious list. The unique back-to-back act for the finale is an exciting experience for four of the world’s main trance artists.

German trance stalwart Alex M.O.R.P.H. has been floating around Armada for quite some time now. The miraculous duo Aly & Fila from Egypt are flying in from their mysterious land of pyramids and deserts. Simon Patterson, in his own country and beyond, is still is one of the most well-known trance artists around. The legendary US duo Gabriel & Dresden will be putting their solo activities to one side temporarily for a warm reunion at Electronic Family.

Without the vision of Rank 1, the Dutch trance landscape would be pretty boring. Sied van Riel has risen like a rocket over the last few years and he is definitely the next big thing in our tiny but musically well-developed country. Top producer Leon Bolier also travels by the speed of light as he comes up with banger after banger. And the new kid in the scene, Setrise, is a very promising person, the future holds great things for him.
