DJ Mag #1 DJ Armin Van Buuren @ Marquee

Thursday, October 25, 2012

At the recent DJ Mag Awards show in Amsterdam, Armin van Buuren was awarded for number one DJ in the critically acclaimed DJ Mag Top 100 poll. It’s the very first time in the history of the poll that a DJ has reclaimed the number one position. And now the #1 DJ returns to Marquee Nightclub in Las Vegas on Saturday, October 27.

Armin claimed back the number one spot from David Guetta, who was voted #1 last year. Dance Music for me is all about sharing. I'd like to share my passion for this kind of music and to get so much recognition from the fans is simply amazing. Even the words ‘thank you’ don't express my gratitude. I'm overwhelmed... I'd like to dedicate this award to my family and fans. Without you I would be nowhere," said Armin. Hot off a busy summer season that included his own weekly night in Ibiza’s Privilege, Armin is now fully focussing on the celebration of the 600th episode of his radio show A State of Trance.
