A State of Trance To Make West Coast Debut
The highly popular trance festival comes to the San Francisco Bay Area

Last year, Insomniac Events announced the acquisition of ALDA Events, a Dutch events company known for producing some of the biggest multi-day festivals in Europe. The partnership between these two companies meant that Insomniac could push their events in the European continent and vice-versa.

One of the more prominent festivals ALDA produces is A State of Trance, the trance-focused event created by Armin van Buuren, named after his popular radio show. The festival has been featured prominently at Ultra Music Festival in Miami, however, an independent event in the Western United States has never materialized…until now.

Thanks to the partnership between both companies, it was announced during A State of Trance 900 in Utrecht that the beloved festival would be coming to the San Francisco Bay Area this summer.

The full announcement was made by Armin van Buuren earlier this week. In a video posted to social media, the trance legend revealed that A State of Trance 900 would take place June 29, 2019 at the Oakland Coliseum.
