A State of Trance
By Day

Welcome to the very first edition of A State Of Trance By Day, the ultimate behind the scenes experience for everyone with a soft spot for electronic music. Let us take you on a ride, become part of the ASOT family and get excited about the professional side of music and events. You may even find yourself wanting to change your career after today or improve the way you’re doing your own thing already. A State of Trance By Day is here for you to help you find your destination!

A State of Trance is a music industry conference unlike any other you may have visited before. Workshops and lectures by keynote speakers cover topics such as music production, stage design, mental health, AI challenges and opportunities. There is no need to travel from one session to the other as all sessions take place in the Room Mate Bruno Hotel, which is located in Rotterdam’s trendy Kop van Zuid area.

Electronic music is a way of life, but also a way of making a living. We are a community of co-creation that includes producers, DJs, designers, stage builders, videographers, marketeers and many other professionals and we wholeheartedly invite you to become part of it.

Taking place on Friday the 23rd and Saturday 24th of February.

Room Mate Bruno Hotel, Rotterdam.

Hope to see you there, Team A State of Trance!
