Livestreamed online through several various platforms, the show also accumulated over 4.8 million viewers from all across the globe.
With many artists, dancers, acrobats, trampolinists, and drummers joining the stage as well, it is clear how above and beyond Armin van Buuren went upon putting together this massive event. According to the trance mastermind:
“I’m still shaking from all this. This show, this crowd… It was absolutely phenomenal. I’m a bit bummed out that it has gone by so quickly, but I enjoyed this so, so much. I’d like to thank everyone for their support and all of their hard work, my fans of course and also Alda, 250K, DLP, Armada and Corrino Media Group. ‘The Best of Armin Only’ isn’t just my ultimate highlight. It’s ours!”
