An anniversary is a special occasion. TRANCE NATION’S 15TH ANNIVERSARY celebration however will include more than simply VIP tickets, contests, special visuals and entertainment.

Trance Nation is proud to announce that PAUL VAN DYK, known to his fa…ns as ‘PvD’, will perform an EXCLUSIVE TWO-HOUR SET! Having grown up in former communist East Berlin, this Grammy-nominated Trance pioneer not only twice graced the #1 spot in the DJ Mag Top100 poll, earning several nominations and awards, but also is a self-proclaimed philanthropist. His political and social involvement also earned him an award from the city of Berlin for his dedication and assistance in helping disadvantaged youths.

JAN JOHNSTON, the successful UK-based female vocalist, is well known for her collaborations not only with PvD, Paul Oakenfold, Cosmic Gate, and Tenishia, but also with multiple artists on the Trance Nation line-up. For this reason, she will be performing LIVE on the 25th of January, an announcement sure to be ‘music to the ears’ of her fans.

Next up is introduce SIMON PATTERSON, a name that carries a long list of consecutive #1 hits on Beatport. His DJ sets are of the same stature, combining hi-energy tracks with innovative visuals, surely worth his weight in gold.
