9 Jan 2020

Armin Van Buuren, born Armin Jozef Jacobus Daniël van Buuren, is an illustrious Dutch DJ who discovered a passion for music mixing and trance at the age of 14. After graduating high school in 1995, Van Buuren decided to study Law at Leiden University and only DJ'd as a side job; a lifestyle that the celebrity kept up for four years until he met Dave Lewis, who opened international doors for him as a performer. Soon after, the Dutch DJ dropped out of university and pursued a career in music full-time, which lead him to host a popular radio show, A State of Trance, in 2001. The show attracted 40 million listeners from 84 countries and gave Van Buuren a platform of followers. Since then, he has performed at countless festivals worldwide and released smash hits, such as 'This is What it Feels Like', which earned him a Grammy nomination.
