It’s that time of the year again, when the world packs their bags and head to the magical island of Ibiza. The ASOT crew is no different, as Armin van Buuren & team will head to Ibiza to launch this summer’s residency at Ushuaïa.
Starting June 26th and going through the 11th of September, every Thursday Ushuaïa will play host to Armin & Friends for A State of Trance Thursdays. If you’re going to Ibiza this summer, make sure you leave a Thursday night open in your schedule to catch what’s going down at Ushuaïa.
Stay tuned for full lineups as summer inches closer to reality.
