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!

Bij Ampco - Flashligt deel genomen aan de Allen & Heath seminar SQ. Seminar werd gegeven door Fred Thomas. We zijn hartelijk ontvangen en in korte tijd door Fred door de SQ heen geleid.

Erg veel geleerd, en onder de indruk van de SQ serie. Er stonden voor de deelnemers een SQ klaar om tijdens het seminar direct alles uit te proberen, aan het einde nog tijd om zelf de mixer uit te proberen.

Hartelijk dank aan Ampco en Fred.

Ik kom graag nog eens terug!
