Did you know that when you come to the Pacific Coliseum for an EDM event or a concert that you’re actually standing on a sub-floor that is place on top of ice? That ice is what the Vancouver Giants play on during hockey season. Most people think that the ice is removed and put back in between events, but that would actually take a lot more work!
Check out this cool time lapse to see how the job’s done.
Intense is an apt way to describe Armin van Buuren’s “Armin Only: Intense” show Saturday night at the Pacific Coliseum. The Dutch DJ played a 5-hour set to a sold out crowd with an amazing spectacle of dancers, acrobats, trampoline performers, confetti cannons, pyrotechnics and an ever-changing video wall.
Van Buuren is an internationally acclaimed DJ who has been a fixture in the EDM scene since the mid 90’s, known for his style of progressive and uplifting trance. He is also the host of a weekly radio show, A State of Trance and has earned the top spot in DJ Magazine’s Top 100 5 times.
In a set ranging from classics to new material, van Buuren delivered a high-energy show from start to finish. The packed house of 6,500 went crazy when hometown singer, Trevor Guthrie hit the stage to perform the Grammy Award Nominated and Juno winning single, “This Is What It Feels Like”.
Produced to perfection, Armin van Buuren’s “Armin Only: Intense” show was an unforgettable, world-class EDM experience. The fans sang, danced and jumped in unison with hands waving in the air for a night of music truly not to be missed.
