Armin Van Buuren has been named number one in the prestigious DJ Top 100 poll twice in a row, in 2007 and 2008– voted for by over 350,000 people across the world, as an indication of his prolific output over the more than 10 years he’s been dj’ing and producing. Being the official World’s Most Popular DJ is just one of his many achievements, but the driving force behind his success is an overriding passion for dance music.
Even a basic list of recent successes reads like a lifetime of work: he was awarded with the prestigious Buma Cultuur Pop Award in 2008. This was followed by being voted as the Best Trance Artist in the Beatport Music Awards, judged on the musician’s artistic achievements, and national and international success. Next to that, Armin was awarded for Best European DJ at the 2009 IDMA Awards, along with 3 other Awards including best video. It is evident that Armin van Buuren has become one of the Decade’s most influential dance music acts.
And now you can catch him live at GLOW @ FUR Nightclub in Washington DC, on Saturday, October 17. Visit Wantickets and purchase your tickets now. Armin’s previous DC show, sold out a week before the event, so do not miss out! This is definitely the best dc nightlife event for the weekend of October 17th, and the biggest club event that Saturday. Armin loves DC and he’s not shy telling everyone about his “home away from home”. “Glow is one of the most established brands in the global clubbing industry. Like Dj’s, clubs too got to re-invent themselves and evolve constantly to keep their fans happy. That’s why Glow has such a huge following and DJ’s keep coming back. I’ve been playing glow at least 3 times per year since 2001 and it’s always one of my best nights of the tour. I’ve NEVER had a bad night. This is how you should run a night!” says Armin van Buuren.
