Watch the best DJ on the planet this month in Abu Dhabi

Armin Van Buuren, named the best DJ in the world for the last four years by DJ Magazine, brings his Midas touch to Yas Island on Thursday, June 30.

Born on Christmas Day 1976, the Dutch trance king gave up a career in law to follow in the footsteps of his hero, French electronica pioneer Jean Michel Jarre.

He became a regular fixture on both the UK and Ibiza circuits, as well as teaming up with fellow big-hitters like Tiesto and Ferry Corsten for single releases.

As well as remixing for The Killers, Faithless and Dido, Armin has released four studio albums and has hosted his hugely popular weekly radio show A State of Trance for the last decade.

Tickets for the DJ’s Flash Forum show (21+ only) cost from Dhs250 to Dhs470. Book at
