Dec 19 2017, 1:23 pm

BSA at the VCC is the first massive show of the year, and we couldn’t ask for a better lineup! Each of these guys headlines shows and plays at festivals all around the world. We don’t even know who we’re most excited for, but we know that this will be an unbelievably epic night of music from three of the world’s top DJs.

Benny Benassi, Sander van Doorn & Arty on Saturday, February 11th at the Vancouver Convention Centre –

Benny Benassi is an Italian electro house producer/DJ best known for his hit song ‘Satisfaction’ which earned him the title ‘The Godfather of Electro’. He is signed to the powerhouse Ultra Records, and even at 44 years old he continues to pump out hits. Right now, his latest, ‘Close To Me’, is tearing up dance floors the world over. He’s currently ranked #27 on DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs List.

Hit song: Benny Benassi ft. Gary Go – Close To Me

Sander van Doorn is an extremely talented trance producer/DJ and the head of his own record label, Doorn Records. The Dutchman is at the top of his game right now. He recently released his second album, Eleve11, which featured a brilliant blend of electronic genres and multiple hits. We saw him the last time he played in Vancouver (September 23, 2011 at Celebrities Nightclub). At that show, he played a phenomenal set, and I’ve been waiting for another opportunity to see him ever since. Sander is ranked #16 on the 2011 DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs List (and has been ranked as high as #10 in 2008).

Hit song: Sander van Doorn – Koko

Arty is a young Russian DJ who has quickly established himself as one of the world’s best trance artists since being signed to Above & Beyond’s label Anjunabeats. Every song he released over the last year was hugely successful and at 22 it looks like he’s only just getting started. This will be Arty’s first performance in Vancouver, but we hope it will be the first of many. In 2011 he was ranked #25 on DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs List.

Hit song: Mat Zo & Arty – Mozart
