Paul van Dyk is one of the leading legends in Trance, for decades his name was up in neon lights performing at iconic nightclubs and festivals. Recently, he announced his new VENTURE X live event concept which launches in North America this February 2023.
He famously feeds off his fans and the crowd, conducting in unison like the famous maestro he became to be. Shifting gears in a different direction with new elements and craft that were itchy to be unleashed. An entirely new context, focusing on embracing the unexpected. VENTURE X is an exciting new concept where the master DJ and curator sources from the finest trance, progressive house, and techno music available and brings it all together during one incredible evening. Completely unique in sight and sound, once entering VENTURE X the mind and body will turn into a force of nature like none other. This is the mission behind Paul van Dyk.
“VENTURE X allows me to explore the width of what electronic music means to me, not just what people expect me to play. It allows me the space to play what I think people should really know, feel, and be exposed to. People know me for trance but there is so much more. VENTURE X allows me to do this as a musical concept because I won’t play 130 BPM straight through but rather a wider musical experience. With most DJ sets I find you either have techno but missing the progressive sequence that takes you on a journey or you have a progressive sound that’s missing the punch. For me, that’s what it’s about, the drive, the push, the pull, and the memories that you create.” - Paul van Dyk
