Corsten’s Countdown announces 8 hour live broadcast for New Year’s

Global electronic dance music DJ, producer and artist Ferry Corsten announces an eight-hour live worldwide broadcast on Saturday December 29th 2012, to celebrate the New Year’s Special episode of Corsten’s Countdown (Twitter hashtag #CC2012), Corsten’s weekly radio show. The eight-hour broadcast runs from 16:00 to 24:00 Dutch time and will be simulcast via Corsten’s Countdown partner radio stations worldwide, on its website and live from the official Ferry Corsten app.

In the weeks leading up to the CC2012 broadcast, people can send in the tracks they would like to hear on the show and share their favourite moments and New Year’s resolutions on People can be updated on their latest requests and stories by following Corsten’s Countdown on Twitter (@ferrycorstencc) and/or by downloading the Ferry Corsten app, now available for iPhone and after New Year’s also available for Android users.

In advance of the previous live broadcast for CC250 (Corsten’s Countdown episode #250) earlier this year, Corsten received tens-of-thousands of song requests prior to that show, trended on Twitter and was one of the top 10 listened to shows during its live broadcast. Top DJs, such as Armin van Buuren, Nicky Romero, Paul van Dyk and Markus Schulz called in to be part of the show, and singer Betsie Larkin performed live.

Corsten’s Countdown New Year’s Special #CC2012 aims to be just as exciting if not even more so. On Saturday, December 29th, 2012, the interactive website www.CorstensCountdown will be launched and fans can listen, vote and experience the Corsten’s Countdown event from anywhere in the world. People on the road or not behind a computer can download the Official Ferry Corsten app and listen and vote from their mobile devices as well.

Ferry Corsten, “I am super excited to be doing this eight-hour broadcast again with SiriusXM and all of our radio partners. It’s great that this special event can be heard all over the world. Our last Corsten’s Countdown special in April was a great experience. I was overwhelmed at listeners’ participation during the show.  I can’t wait to unite global EDM fans again for a full eight hours, just two days before New Year’s Eve. This special will truly be a countdown to remember!”
