Above & Beyond Group Therapy 500 is coming, but Paavo, Jono e Tony have even more surprises in store

Preparations are underway for the double appointment of 15 and 16 October at the Bank Of California Stadium in Los Angeles to celebrate the 500 episodes of the radio show that in the last 10 years has further expanded the musical horizons of Paavo, Jono and Tony: Group Therapy 500, already sold out for several months, will see the participation of Olan, Alpha 9, Mat Zo, Grum, Andrew Bayer and of course Above & Beyond. During Sunday 16 October, day two of ABGT500 weekend, instead, the classic appointment with the Anjunadeep Open Air event at Christmas Tree Lane Park, Los Angeles with line up yet to be announced.

But it will be a long weekend of celebrations in California, starting with Andrew Bayer’s show celebrating his return with the album “Duality” with an event on Friday 14 October at the Los Angeles Academy with Naz, Olan and Fatum; On the same day, the Los Angeles Exchange will be the location for the official Anjunadeep Pre-Party and again at the Exchange, on October 15th, the unmissable After Party of the ABGT 500 will be held with Mat Zo, Synrise, Oliver Smith plus other artists yet to be announced.

ABGT500 represents the most important milestone of the radioshow that has changed the face of trance and progressive in recent years, but this event is surrounded by a series of other events, before and after, that Above & Beyond have given to their fans and fans of music made in Anjunabeats and Anjunabeats to celebrate the return of live music after two difficult years.

This is the case of Group Therapy Weekender London at The Dockyards on 10 and 11 September last, which saw the participation of over 40 artists: an incredible success, also inherited from the two-day event held every year, in summer, from 2017, at The Gorge Amphitheater, WS, USA.

Above & Beyond have therefore decided to further expand the experience of the Group Therapy Weekender with the announcement of the event on the other side of the world: the next 16, 17 and 18 December in fact, at the Yarra Valley Estate, Victoria, will will hold Group Therapy Weekender Australia:


Australia was the destination of the ABGT150 celebrations, in Sydney, in 2015, but Paavo, Jono and Tony are keen to always keep the Group Therapy flag high even so far from home: because home is where there is family, and family it’s Anjunafamily !
