Armin van Buuren brings world tour to Dubai



Dutch DJ and trance producer Armin van Burren is bringing his latest world tour to Dubai. Meydan will host the epic Armin Only Embrace party on May 20.

The five-time number 1 DJ in the world will arrive in the UAE following a string of high profile DJs. The gig will close Envie Events’ massive season, having flown in Martin Garrix for New Year’s Eve and Hardwell in February – and to say thanks for an amazing few months, they’re giving away guestlist to 100 lucky people before tickets go on sale. Just subscribe here before Wednesday to be in with a chance.

The Armin Only Embrace world tour is named after van Buuren’s sixth album, Embrace, which is full of collaborations. Mr. Probz, Hardwell and Gavin DeGraw are just a few of the internationally acclaimed artists who feature. Speaking of the album, van Buuren said: “The idea was to ‘embrace’ several different instruments and sounds, and incorporate them into my sound.”

Things kick-off with two gigs on May 6 and 7 in Amsterdam, before jetting off to Poland and then Dubai. His last tour, Armin Only Intense, was huge, with 500,000 people, 35 shows and five continents. Shortly after the tour he said: “It was probably the worst decision for me to do this tour financially, but the best choice for me personally. It was the best time of my life!” And it seems that he just can’t help himself, as he promises this to be his “biggest and most extensive tour yet.”

Born in the Netherlands, the 39-year-old is synonymous with trance music, hosting a weekly radio show, A State of Trance, which has 20 million weekly listeners in 74 countries. Having been crowned number 1 DJ in the world by DJ Mag a whopping five times, he currently sits at number 4, behind his friends and collaborators, Hardwell and Martin Garrix.
