Anjunafans: get ready to party! Today, Above & Beyond will celebrate the 400th episode of their weekly radio show, Trance Around the World, in Beirut, Lebanon. In typical fashion, the British legends are putting on a hell of a show. The 8-hour trance extravaganza will feature performances from Gareth Emery, Kyau & Albert, Mat Zo, and Jaytech, as well as a 2-hour set from Above & Beyond themselves. For complete info and set times, click past the break.
You can listen to the show by visiting TATW400.com. In addition to the live stream, the web site offers some pretty cool features, including pictures, video, and an interactive map that allows you to see Tweets from all over the world in real time. If you want your message displayed (and potentially read by Tony, Paavo, and Jono during the broadcast), make sure to tweet with the hashtag #TATW400. This isn’t just a gimmick — during the show’s 350th anniversary at the Hollywood Palladium, #TATW350 became the highest-trending topic on Twitter.
On a sentimental note, it’s moments like these allow the entire EDM family across the world to come together and celebrate the music we love. Dance music moves people across cultures, time zones, and generations — and TATW is proof. There’s something genuinely touching about a radio show that connects people all over the planet. Above & Beyond’s performance at EDC 2011 remains this editor’s fondest EDM memory. Everyone here at the Dancing Astronaut team wishes them the very best on this special occasion, and we can’t wait to listen in.
