Good Friday and the first night of Passover too place last night in Philly but all the religions in the world couldn’t stop trance fans from packing into the Theater of the Living Arts to see DJ Ferry Corsten.
Corsten, who hails from Amsterdam, is credited with creating the sound known as Dutch Trance in the 1990’s.
The show, Corsten’s first in Philadelphia in the last seven years was presented by Mass EDMC, NV Concepts, and Steez Promo, and opened with support from local DJs Jeff Heart and David Vaux.
Playing on decks situated between two large digital screens, Corsten’s set kicked off around midnight to a roar of cheers.
From that point it was like a 2 hour work-out for the dancing TLA patrons, the smoke cannons on stage, and Corsten’s smile. His constant grin was a testament to how much the man enjoys thrilling crowds and whipping them into a trance.
The crowd enjoyed it every bit as much as the DJ.
