Relive the Moment or Listen in for the First Time
The most important parts of Thanksgiving weekend are turkey, family and Dreamstate SoCal. The epic two day all trance event returned to the NOS Events Center on November 24th and 25th for its 2017 event. The lineup included superstars like Armin van Buuren, Andrew Rayel, and Paul van Dyk to name a few. Plenty of lesser known artists and interesting side projects dotted the lineup as well. Armin’s GAIA project delivered a huge performance and Arty‘s “return to trance” alias Alpha 9 was a smash hit. Thomas Datt also created a special “Dreamstate Mix” of Marco V‘s ‘I Feel You for the event. This unparalleled weekend of trance in the United States was one to remember. And thanks to Reddit user ryan3243 there is a master thread of live sets from Dreamstate 2017 to help fans relive their favorite moments.
The Reddit Post lists all the artists from each day of the event and aims to crowdsource videos and track listings. Many of the artists uploaded official sets to SoundCloud, complete with track listings. Those sets have links in the Reddit Thread and some are even available for download. Some links, labeled “crowd video” have partial or full length videos from in the crowd perspective. This video from Facebook user “Armin van Buuren Mexico” shows the entire hour and twenty minute set from Gaia.
But the work remains incomplete. If you spot any recorded sets or crowd videos please go post them on Reddit. This effort depends on getting information from different people and your contribution can help! As of the writing of this article, only twelve recordings or crowd videos have links on the thread. But it is only three days old and the Trance Family runs deep. Check back in later to see if any new sets pop up!
