What Are You Doing New Year's Eve?

Got no plans yet for New Year’s Eve? Well, thanks to a new contest from KLM, here’s an option that could change all of that. How about spending the holiday in NYC with Dutch superstar DJ Armin Van Buuren?

Armin Van Buuren is having what might best be described as the hottest moment of his 15-year career behind the turntables. Even a basic list of recent successes reads like a lifetime of work, and the landmarks just keep coming. Aside from his radio show, "A State of Trance," broadcasting to over 40 FM stations as well as satellite and internet radio, and having more than 20 million listeners every week, Van Buuren’s podcast gets more than 50,000 downloads per week.

Not only that, he has reached the number one position in the critically acclaimed DJ Mag’s Top 100 poll five times, and the music video for his single "In and Out of Love" featuring Sharon den Adel has received more than 125 million views, making it one of the most viewed videos on YouTube. But that’s not all.

This year saw the release of A Year in the Life of Armin Van Buuren, a documentary that takes a closer look at the person behind the Dutch DJ. From crowds chanting his name, people taking pictures of him everywhere and his life constantly on the move to racing from one club to the next to being knighted by the Queen of his home country, The Netherlands, this documentary captures it all.
