Armin van Buuren announces Google+ integration to his ASOT600 shows, allows fans to videochat with him
Armin van Buuren won’t be the first DJ to perform at a sold out Madison Square Garden, but he will be the first to perform there while video chatting with his fans. The legendary trance producer has announced that during all live shows on his upcoming A State of Trance 600 ‘The Expedition’ world tour, fans will have the opportunity to attend a virtual Goolge+ hangout. These sessions will allow members of the trance family to interact with, and ask questions of, not only Armin van Buuren but also Markus Schulz, Dash Berlin, and W&W. While only select fans will have the opportunity to actually participate in chat, all will be able to watch.
“Every week, more than 20 million people tune into my show, so for these special live shows I’d like to take it one step further. Via the Google+ Hangouts, I can turn the listeners into viewers and offer them a front row seat.”
Even if you were unable to snag tickets to the show, you now have three ways to participate — radio broadcast, video broadcast, and/or Google+ hangout. Click below the jump to find out how to get involved.
You can subscribe to the hang-out sessions here, but in order to get one of the coveted chat spots, ASOT suggests you do something to stand out. Throw a party, dress accordingly, represent your country, etc. Are you up for the challenge?
