    It's amazing he could get such a nuanced point across without talking about lizards, bird-flu aka the air sickness and Armins tattered health.

    At least PVD spoke. Some choose to stay in silent that the problems will simply go away but I think they are just making it worse for them and just torturing themselves. You can tell that the signs of tiredness or boredom starts to show when producers simply quit, or start to produce something they never would. Right now all the fans in the Trance scene are being fed a fantasy.

    J Paul van Dyk was awarded over $12 million from concert organizers over a 2016 near-death stage fall that left him with long-lasting brain injuries.During a 2016 set in the Netherlands, Dyk performed at the “A State of Trance” festival where he horribly fell through the stage. He suffered substantial injuries, including a brain injury and damage to his spine.



    Also further to the quote above, it needs to be further fixed.

    https://edm.com/news/paul-van-dyk-blast-alda-not-asot-ade-interview

    In the article about the interview during the Amsterdam Dance Event about my accident at A State of Trance 750 in Utrecht, reference is made to my “disappointment in A State of Trance’s reaction to the accident”.

    While the quote about “these guys” is correct, it must be clarified that what I said was not about A State of Trance - which is a festival and event brand - but about the producers of the event - ALDA.

    These are two different entities and it is important to be clear that I have no problem with A State of Trance (or Armin [van Buuren]) because they did not do anything wrong and were not responsible for what happened. I also did not make any statement about cutting ties with ASOT.

    I still remember this as the day of yesterday!
    As I was in the Mainstage dancing to PvD.... I was looking at the stage when he fell through that hole.
    The moment after I saw people running around the DJ booth and I knew there was trouble.

    So immediately I checked a website where you can check the emergancy calls.
    And I saw that the air ambulance was called to the Jaarbeurs I felt the worst.
    I was so happy when I heard that Paul would be able to return to what he loves most: Making trance and touring (although not as much as before the accident)

    When I saw the interview that nobody contacted him to ask how his condition is I felt anger.
    How on earth could they do this?

    So I am happy that they now solved the issue

    The music scene often reflect the state of the world/society and where humanity is heading towards. You'll noticed that all the best works are in the underground but there is so much cheesy commercial shit that it's all fake. Not sure why I am the only one that can see this. A lot of backstabbing/shady deals and questionable things that happen behind closed doors but you won't see that on TV because it's bad for press.
