Armin van Buuren no. 1 DJ in the DJ Mag Top 100 again!

The votes have been counted and the results are in. The DJ Mag Top 100 list of 2010 is officially announced. And it has some good news in it. For the 4th year running, Armin van Buuren is the number 1 DJ, and thus prolongs his title as ‘Most popular DJ in the world’! As the first DJ in the history of the DJ Mag, the Dutch DJ is now the number 1 DJ for 4 years in a Row

Armin van Buuren (born in Leiden, Netherlands on 25 December 1976) is a Dutch trance producer and DJ. In 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010 he was voted number one in DJ Magazine's annual top 100 list of the most popular DJs. Since 2001 van Buuren has hosted a weekly radio show called A State of Trance and claims to have over 30 million weekly listeners in more than 40 countries, which would make it the most listened radio show in the world. His 2008 studio album, Imagine, entered the Dutch album chart at #1, a first for a dance artist in Dutch music history.
Armin has had a great year so far, not only releasing his A State of Trance 2010 compilation, but also reaching the milestone of his fourth artist album, ‘Mirage’. Fans best be prepared for the Armin Only 2010 – Mirage worldtour, with shows in at least 15 cities across 5 different continents and the kick off in the sold-out Jaarbeurs venue in Utrecht on November 13th! Armin would love to thank you all for the continuous support and for casting your vote in the DJ Mag.

Armin:” What music does to people has always been a passion for me. It’s there to comfort you when you’re sad, or to make you scream when you’re happy. And that fact grew to a passion. It brings me to do what I do today. Last Wednesday in London, I received the award for most popular global DJ for the fourth time in a row from DJ Magazine. And it makes me happy. Very, very happy. To get so much back from the crowd by simply doing something I love is one of the greatest gifts in life. I’m the happiest man on earth, not only because I won a wonderful award, but because I can share my passion. With you. So once again… thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you…”
