Taking Armin to New York

KLM has teamed up with one of the best DJs in the world: Armin van Buuren. Over the last few weeks we have been running a competition to highlight the Armin Only Intense World Tour. Participants in the competition asked to upload photos of their favourite New York hangouts to the competition website.

The winner, Alexandra, won an all-in trip to the Armin Only Intense Show in New York for her original photo, including a meeting with Armin himself.

Just making sure everything is secured before the aircraft takes off for New York at 17:15 hours.
