A STATE OF TRANCE (ASOT 950)
ASOT takes place every year usually in early to mid February. The ASOT 950 that i've raved took place on 15 February 2020.
The nearest airport is Amsterdam Schiphol Airport which is only 30 minutes from the festival. From there, you can take either a Train or Taxi (Uber or ViaVan) to take you to your accommodation, or to Utrecht Central if you are going directly to the festival. Then, from Utrecht Central, you can go by foot to the festival as it is only a 20 minutes walking distance. For the Early Bird combo package holders, ASOT offers a special Shuttle Service from the hotel to the festival venue! However, after the end of the festival, trains may be out of service until the early morning hours and the availability of taxis may be limited. So make sure to pre-book your return transportation.
ASOT is located in Utrecht, Netherlands. The festival though takes place at the indoor area of Jaarbeurs, while the pre-party of the festival (the day before) takes place at different locations in Amsterdam each year.
FACILITIES & AMENTITIES
ASOT provides a huge Food Court just before the entrance to the stages, and Bar Stands at the sides of each stage.
It also provides a huge number of Lockers which are password protected that you will be given at the time of payment at the Lockers Desk or online. Unfortunately, it does not provide a Lost & Found Area, however in case you lose any of your personal belongings, you can send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Lastly, ASOT provides a Merchandise Stand with a variety of products including t-shirts, hoodies, caps, flags etc.
ASOT does not provide a campsite, however it provides an official accommodation package as a combination with the festival tickets. You can still though, book separately your accommodation on your own.
ASOT is the ultimate trance experience by far. It consists of 5 different stages, where you can listen to some of the best trance music, from Progressive to Psy-Trance, there is a stage for each type of trance raver! And the best trance lineup you will ever see at a festival! It was my first time seeing Armin Van Buuren 3 times at the same festival, playing 3 different unique set at each stage! I will definitely rave ASOT 1000 which is also the last one!
