Reaching the 500th episode of your weekly radio show is quite a milestone. Ferry Corsten teamed up with Dancefoundation for an 8-hour marathon broadcast to celebrate Corsten’s Countdown 500 in true, interactive style.
Corsten’s Countdown is renowned for showcasing the latest releases and future hits from across the electronic dance music spectrum including trance, house and progressive. Every week Ferry personally selects and presents the freshest dance music to his listeners. Following the climactic close of each show Ferry encourages listeners to vote for their favorite aired tune. The three tracks to receive the most votes are scheduled for a re-run in the following week’s Corsten’s Countdown Top 3.
On January 21st, 2017 we broadcasted live from Club Annabel in Ferry’s hometown of Rotterdam, The Netherlands. For eight hours Ferry played tracks that were requested by listeners upfront, plus personal highlights of the past 10 years of hosting the radio show. The track list was updated in real-time on the interactive corstenscountdown.com website, that also featured social media messages by fans from all over the world. Fans could easily mark their favorite tracks and were asked to submit their personal Top 3 during the 7th hour of the broadcast. These submissions combined resulted in the ultimate Corsten’s Countdown Top 10, as played in the final hour.
Dancefoundation was responsible for the complete radio production, co-hosting, streaming and website. Sinnergy took care of the video stream. Check the videos below!
