#ABGT 100

With the recent announcement from everyone's favorite trance powerhouse trio, Above and Beyond, happily announced on Friday, via their podcast, that they would be bringing their iconic 100th episode of Group Therapy to the Big Apple on October, 18th 2014. The 100th anniversary of the renowned podcast also marks Above and Beyond's "biggest headlining show in the United States to date", means big things for Tony, Jono and Paavo. Anjunabeat's founders are beloved by fans from far and wide, with a huge international fan base so picking the perfect venue, and city, was imperative to mark this special why New York?


The American Dream

It's simple. The mantra and idea that New York City represents the American Dream, the place where you can make it big; and that's exactly what Above and Beyond has  successfully done over the span of 10 plus years. There is no better place to host such a revolutionary anniversary of not only Group Therapy as a podcast itself, but to celebrate the works of such a celebrated group in electronic music.  To play in Madison Square Garden, which is one of the most iconic venues in music history, marks a milestone for any major musician as the concert hall has the capability to seat over 18,000 attendees and is considered to be one of New York City's most notable landmarks. Not only will this be the trio's biggest headlining US show, but the three will also be first British DJs to ever headline at MSG.

With the success of their 50th live podcast show at London's Alexandra Palace, the bar will be raised even higher for ABGT 100, with special Anjunabeats guests, new releases and more.
