Throwback to Armin Only – Mirage, Beirut

It all started in 2005 when Armin van Buuren held the first ever ‘Armin Only’ show in The Netherlands under the title of “Armin Only – The Next Level”. In the past few years, Armin Only has evolved beyond a solo-show concept and into a full-fledged dance music experience.

From “Armin Only – The Next Level” to “The Second Edition”, “Imagine” to “Mirage” and “Intense” to “Embrace”, growing every year, expanding the travel map, extending the lineups of joining artists, increasing the capacities, enhancing the experience and most importantly, connecting the people for one cause, the love for Trance.

On January 22, 2011 – Beirut was the next stop for ‘Armin Only – Mirage’. The level of excitement was huge, people from all over the Middle East flew to Lebanon for this particular reason – Beirut was the center that day.

The moment you step into the gigantic venue of BIEL with its full capacity, you would be dazzled by the huge LED screens installed. The ambient lights give you a feeling of nostalgia. Fans waiting impatiently for Armin to take the stage, they start screaming… Armin .. Armin .. Armin – what a moment. The show starts and the screens unleash their power, the light show filling the whole venue and the music? So pure! A full 8-hours set by Armin van Buuren himself accompanied by a big roster of artists and dancers. The production was huge and flawless. Probably one of the best events that Beirut witness, if not THE best.

Now, Armin takes ‘Armin Only’ to a whole new level with his next show – ‘The Best Of Armin Only’ in May 2017 – The Netherlands.  The show is set to be iconic in the Trance history and to quote Armin ” … the most monumental and seductive show ever made”. Join us and Armin in The Netherlands to celebrate 20 years of Armin van Buuren and Trance. Final tickets sold via
