Just when you thought it couldn¡¯t get any better (after yesterday¡¯s announcement of Afrojack and Marvin Priest), Breakout Under 18s Music Festival has done it again with the addition of worlds #1DJ Armin Van Buuren to the line-up.
Not only does this news completely changes the way Under-18 events are delivered in Australia, it also seriously raises the bar in the years to come. Unfortunately for Melbourne punters, Armin Van Buuren will only be appearing at the Sydney leg of the Breakout Festival due to availability issues.
