Trance doesn’t get any bigger in Malaysia than at the return of Future Music Festival Asia (FMFA) this March 2013 for the simple fact that Armin van f*cking Buuren is set to curate the 600th iteration of his legendary A State of Trance (ASOT600). A first for South East Asia, Malaysia is currently the only country in this region to have been picked as one of the 6 cities visited by ASOT600.
Last year they gathered more than 25,000 music fans for what was the first proper internationally renowned music festival in Malaysia, Future Music Festival Asia 2013 will one-up that achievement by spanning the festival across 2 days on 15 and 16 March 2013. Fans will be offered choices to purchase single-day passes or a two-day weekend pass (personally we’re going for both). ASOT600 will take up the first day of the FMFA weekend, promising a lineup of big dance names handpicked by Armin himself.
As it was with this year’s FMFA, expect international acts to share the stage with regional and local names. JUICE heard some names being thrown around, and yes, we can confirm some of them. However we can only reveal the full ticketing details and lineup this 6 November when Livescape Asia and Future Entertainment Australia hold their press conference. Watch this space!
