Trance lovers wouldn't have missed out on the special date which was 15th March 2013 as the Trance God himself, Armin Van Buuren brought A State Of Trance (ASOT) to Kuala Lumpur! Held at Sepang International Circuit, an amazing turnout of 30,000 trance lovers gathered to rave at this epic show! and Yes I SAID 30,000!!

ASOT was held the day before Future Music Festival Asia (FMFA) where there would be plenty of artistes partying out with crazy fans from all around the region. So, there were plenty of carnival rides, games, food and a festival itself on the day ASOT was held

Courtesy of Don Chan from Manoah Consultancy & Asahi Malaysia, I was given the privilege to get VIP & Media passes to ASOT and FMFA. That means, Free flow of beer for me, VIP Zones & Cabanas for me, awesome backstage and up front stage access for me, I get to meet the artistes and way more!

I headed over to ASOT at about 6pm where Ben Gold was currently spinning on the stage. I managed to try out all the awesome games and booths around the festival area. and yeah, a lot of dancing and partying the whole night long! 

Here are some of the pictures that night!
