A State of Trance (often abbreviated as ASOT) is the title of a weekly radio show (every Saturday at 20:00 (CET)) hosted by prominent trance DJ and producer Armin van Buuren. First airing in March 1999 on ID&T Radio (the predecessor of Slam!FM), the show takes the format of a three hour mix in which he plays new trance music, both promotional and commercially released. Selected tracks are announced during the show in order to help promote new artists and releases. Its radio-show/website combination has proven popular internationally, as fans—while listening to the radio-show—will converse in the website chat-rooms and forums, such as Digitally Imported, during the broadcast. The success of the show has also spawned to include several dance events around the world.

A release of 4-CD unmixed compilations of "A State of Trance Classics" has occurred annually since 2003:

  • A State of Trance Classics (2003)
  • A State of Trance Classics Vol. 2 (2004)
  • A State of Trance Classics Vol. 3 (2005)
  • A State of Trance Classics Vol. 4 (2006)
  • A State of Trance Classics Vol. 5 (2007)
  • A State of Trance Classics Vol. 6 (2008)
  • A State of Trance Classics Vol. 7 (2009)

  • A State of Trance Classics Vol. 9 (2011)
  • A State of Trance Classics Vol. 10 (2012)
  • A State of Trance Classics Vol. 11 (2013)

These consist of unedited, full length tracks, in either the original or most popular mix, and state that they are from "uncompressed masters". Despite being called "Classics", the criteria for inclusion weighs heavily towards the difficulty of finding uncompressed digital copies of tracks and as such relatively recent tracks which were vinyl-only or on small record labels have featured.
