A state of Trance

Dutch Trance worldwide

A state of Trance is the world’s most popular Dance Radio Show. It can be received in 87 countries throught 100 radiostations, attracting about 37 million listeners. Trance music is a worldwide phenomenon, exported by Dutch DJ’s like Tiësto and Armin van Buuren, who is also the host of the radioshow called ASOT.  To celebrate the 900th episode, ASOT turned the main hall in the Utrecht Jaarbeurs into a steaming trance club. Ampco Flashlight was selected to supply lighting, rigging and motion for ASOT900.

Some numbers

12 trailers with lights & rigging brought in some two kilometers of truss, 280 electric chainhoists, a lot of moving lights and 26 CyberHoist II chainhoists. The results were astonishing, and we are already looking forward to ASOT1000!
