OFFICIAL: A State Of Trance 1000 postponed in 2022

The work behind an event that has been awaited for years, continuing to stem an unprecedented pandemic is extremely difficult and certainly is it not what Armin van Buuren and his team and us could have imagined.

In fact, a sustained vaccination campaign does not seem enough in the Netherlands for outgoing premier Mark Rutte who a few minutes ago extended the restrictions on entertainment, not allowing festivals except outdoors and with maximum 750 people until September 20th. The consequence is only one, this evening: the “Celebrations Weekend” of A State Of Trance 1000 in Jaarbeurs Utrecht scheduled for the next 3 and 4 September and expected from its announcement last January, has been automatically postponed at 18 & 19 February 2022.

News that many feared and that at the moment does not find alternatives.

From the website:

“Dear ASOT fan, 

On 21 January 2021, A State Of Trance reached the epic milestone of 1000 episodes. Due to the global pandemic, we decided to celebrate this with all of you on 3+4 September 2021. Until this very day, all the signs were pointing towards this event taking place as planned. The team worked tirelessly to make this the biggest Celebration Weekend that the show, but even more importantly, our amazing trance family deserves. We’ve been in close contact with the local government in Utrecht and have developed a detailed corona-protocol on top of all the existing safety measures. We have taken numerous measures and have given our everything to safely organize this event.   

Unfortunately, the Dutch Government has extended the current measures for events in the Netherlands until mid-September. Although we are very disappointed with this decision, we are relieved to finally have clarity. Unfortunately, this also means that with a heavy heart, we must announce that the ASOT1000 Celebration Weekend in the Jaarbeurs Utrecht can no longer take place on 3 + 4 September 2021. Although the celebration of this huge milestone is delayed by one year, reaching 1000 episodes on A State Of Trance is something we cannot leave uncelebrated. Therefore, we will still celebrate ASOT1000 in 2022 with a huge celebration weekend on 18 + 19 February 2022 and write trance history together! 

All tickets for the ASOT1000 Celebration Weekend will remain valid for the new dates. If you are unable to join us in 2022, you can request a refund. All ticket buyers will receive an email with instructions. If you are not the main booker, please reach out to him/her about your tickets. 

The postponement of the event in Utrecht will not affect the ASOT1000 celebrations in Moscow and Krakow. These tour shows will proceed on 8 + 9 October as planned. If you can’t come to ASOT1000, we’ll bring ASOT1000 to you, and we plan to add more shows to the tour shortly.  

We can imagine you may still have some questions. That’s why we have composed an FAQ for you on our website: Please read through this FAQ carefully. If you can’t find your answer there, please contact us via We will respond to your email as soon as possible. 

Hang in there, trance family! We will turn the world into a dancefloor again. We hope to see you on 18 + 19 February 2022 in the Jaarbeurs Utrecht for the ASOT1000 Celebration Weekend! “
