Last year, the 250th and New Year’s live editions of Corsten’s Countdown spiked Twitter trends, premiered new anthems and transfixed music lovers around the globe. Today, electronic music maven Ferry Corsten reveals the first details of his third extended spectacular. Putting Summer 2013 into high gear, on June 2nd, Ferry moves the action to Europe. He’ll once again provide another track-packed 8-hour epic Corsten’s Countdown transmission sensation! Ireland’s national broadcaster, RTÉ will be hosting the Corsten’s Countdown Summer Special, which will beam out from their Dublin-based studios and be carried around the world.
On announcing the show, Ferry said: “I’m really excited to start my first ever Corsten’s Countdown summer edition. There is nothing more exciting than hearing your favourite summer tunes while gearing up for this hot and steamy season”
So #CCSUMMER, let’s go!
Taking over the SiriusXM airwaves for 8hrs at a time, previous live editions of Corsten’s Countdown have drawn listenerships numbered up in the 100s of 1000s. Most recently, through its thrilling, feature packed action (and often fan-guided musical content), the 2012 New Year’s broadcast trended 3 times on Twitter.
Now, much more is in store! The Summer Special edition of Corsten’s Countdown will be packed to the nines with the hottest tracks, drop-ins from surprise guests, ticket giveaways, track and remix premieres, live interviews (with DJs calling in from around the world) and, of course, in the last hour, the Countdown itself. You name it, #CCSUMMER is going to have it, so put a mark in your calendar for June 2nd now!
