Celebrating 15 years of ASOT with their most iconic moments

From the epic first episode of ASOT to Gaia’s world premiere at ASOT Miami, check out these 15 memorable moments from ASOT episodes and events.

Over the past 15 years, A State Of Trance has produced hundreds of memorable episodes and has become a major platform.

What started as an obsession for radio has turned into a weekly highlight for more than 33 million listeners, broadcasting to over 100 FM stations and fans from over 84 countries.

The “milestones” of A State of Trance were also celebrated with dozens of shows around the world. The live-streams of these shows have millions of viewers and a lot of interactions. This all together makes A State of Trance the biggest trance-community of the world.

As we look forward to the 15th year anniversary celebration this Saturday at Utrecht, check out these 15 memorable moments in ASOT history.
