so this past Saturday i traveled to Den Bosch to experience the amazing-ness that was ASOT550 and when i say this was the best goddamn event i have EVER BEEN TO IN MY LIFE, im not kidding. from the MUSIC to the set up to the people. i have never been so overwhelmed by the LOVE felt within the international trance family.
Before this event I posted on the ASOT550 Den Bosch wall that i was looking for my TranceFamilyUSA and within days i received a message from a girl who was going from California! She added me to a group on facebook that was called “International Federation of Supremely Fit Intelligent Beautiful Trancers” haha aka, TranceFamilyUSA. The group was made up of 30 fellow trancers from all over the USA who were planning on going to Den Bosch. We ALL met up at Amsterdam Centraal Station and I spent all weekend with these AMAZING people, drinking, laughing and enjoying lonnnng conversations about trance:)
We all hopped on the RAVE TRAIN the next day and traveled to Den Bosch with speakers on the train blasting nothing but trance! Went to the ASOT550 pre-party hosted by AM.FM and soon enough all walked into ASOT together. We all wore these light up blue lanyards and were the ONLY ones at the entire event with them so even when we split up tp go to different stages we always found each other in the crowds again because of these lanyards!
I will post pictures of this whole event soon enough but for now I’ll leave my tumblr with this one….it sums up the entire night and was taken by a fellow trancefamilyUSA member.
During Armin’s set we met a couple of Dutch people who noticed my American flag. They asked me why i had it and i told them of course that it was because i traveled from California all for the sake of TRANCE. they were so impressed by us and our group, a guy in the group looked at me and said I can’t let you leave this event without doing this… he put me on his shoulders and i stretched out my American flag over the sea of 40.000 people.
I cannot tell you how many people stared and applauded when they saw me waving our flag to Armin’s set. I have never felt so patriotic and so happy to be representing TranceFamilyUSA. Soon after I was interviewed by the PINK MICROPHONE! aka the shoutout microphone, so any of you listening to the sets from that night look out for the shoutout i gave to my TranceFamily from California :)
Best night of my life, thus far. Hands down.
IN TRANCE WE TRUST.
