In just two weeks we will be able to watch Armin van Buuren with his Armin Only Embrace World Tour in Jakarta. We sat down with promoters in a media interview to talk about preparation. Dany Setiawan as founder of Euphorics Events and Yudha Budhisurya as Managing Director of Livescape Indonesia answered the curiosity from media about Armin Only Embrace World Tour.
Speaking about concept of the show, Armin van Buuren has three concepts. First concept is Armin van Buuren himself that regularly play in festivals or clubs all around the world. Second concept is A State of Trance, where the show serves as extended event from his regular radio show. Third concept is Armin Only where this is Armin’s solo show.
“In this show, Armin will play tracks from his album, in this case Embrace. With supports from featuring artists from his album, Armin will play for 4 hours,” said Yudha. In his final set, he will play vinyl set for one hour. In total, Armin will play for 5 hours.
Approximately 17 artists will support Armin in this tour. There are Eric Vloeimans, Mr. Probz, Angel Taylor, and many more. These artists came from various genres, from Jazz to Pop. From Trance to Rock. All will blend for the show.
The preparation itself only waits for Armin Only team to arrive with logistics. “We just prepare for the execution of the show,” said Dany. So far, there is no obstacle in preparation phase. ALDA Events as the owner of Armin Only brand really cooperate and considerate with promoters. Few adjustments were made to meet the standards for Armin Only team and they really accommodate to it.
The tickets already sold almost 80% and still counting. “Judging by the enthusiast, probably the ticket will be sold out before the event,” said Dany. The buyers not only from Indonesia, but also Malaysia, Thailand, Japan, even from Netherland. “We were quite surprise with the response!” said Yudha.
This show is combination between dance music with theatre. “This is not a festival. This is a show!” exclaimed Dany. It will be spectacular and will bring new experience to everyone who see it. We can expect the variety performance from Armin. “Each show you won’t hear the same set. Armin always prepare different set for different show,” said Dany.
The gate will be open at 1900 WIB. For the first two hours, people will be warm-up with Club Embrace concept. During this time, people can buy merchandise or F&B. On 2100 WIB, Armin will start play until finish.
Compare to previous Armin Only shows, Mirage and Intense, the concept for Embrace will be different. “Each tour series is an improvement. After Mirage and Intense, we can say that Armin Only Embrace World Tour is the peak of development and improvement. Indonesia very lucky to host the show,” said Yudha.
The album itself embrace the variety of music. Just like the name of the album, Armin incorporated many music genres and experiment with new sounds. It reflects in this tour. Armin wants to embrace everybody under one roof, music. “As a promoter, we want to ask everybody to unite. After all the conflict due to political situations in our country, we want to give them a break. Let music unite us once again,” said Dany.
