Corsten's Countdown celebrates 500!
Iconic trance DJ Ferry Corsten started “Corsten’s Countdown” back in 2007, a weekly radio show delivering fiery tunes chosen by the man himself, which allows listeners to chime in with their votes to ultimately decide which tracks will be repeated for top three.
The “Corsten’s Countdown” radio show has been the first of its kind to encompass dance music, more specifically in the trance/progressive/house genres; A truly refreshing spin on the tired “top 40” bit normally dreaded by the underground. While we give an applaud for that feat in and of itself, there is another reason to celebrate!
After a decade of runs, this Saturday, January 21, 2017 will mark the show’s 500th airing. Corsten is set to celebrate worldwide with a live, eight-hour broadcast party from Club Annabel in his hometown of Rotterdam, Netherlands beginning 4pm CET (10am EST US). Fans will be treated to guests and special interviews during the show, with Aarmin van Buuren and Markus Schulz among those to be expected.
For those lucky enough to be in and around Rotterdam, Corsten will also be hosting an afterparty joined by Robert Nickson, Solarstone, Stoneface & Terminal, Gouryella, and Giuseppe Ottaviani to round out the grand march. The rest of us can party via an array of platforms including youtube, soundcloud, DI.FM, local FM stations where applicable, and of course corstenscountdown.com and the Ferry Corsten app.
