The Episode 750 of  A State of Trance was struck by a tragedy which was an accident involving German trance stalwart Paul van Dyk . As a number of fans gathered at the official kick off event for the radio show and millions of worldwide fans listened in for yet another historic episode , much to everyone’s bewilderment, Paul van Dyk fell 20 odd feet from the stage during his set.

Since 2001, Armin van Buuren’s radio show ASOT or ‘A State of Trance’ has been running ever so well with close to 40 million listeners , spread over 84 countries around the world. The show features on more than 100 radio stations worldwide and gives its listeners some of the best music from a range of genres. On February 27, A State of Trance 750 kicked off in the Dutch town of Utrecht. However , mid way through the set by Paul van Dyk, he accidentally fell of the stage. Armin van Buuren confirmed the same in an official statement soon after, where he stated that Paul had been shifted to the hospital and that he would keep the fans posted on his condition.

Van Dyk who has been reported to have sustained a head injury was immediately airlifted to a nearby hospital where he is currently receiving treatment . Soon after the fall, the music stopped and Armin announced to the fans that out of respect for the Trance legend Paul, the main stage would be closed and his originally planned vinyl set would be cancelled too. However, the other stages would continue to run as planned.

Support for Paul has been pouring in from Trance music fans and fellow musicians from around the world on Social media. Let us all hope for the best and the speedy recovery of the musician we all love. Get well soon Paul van Dyk.
