Above & Beyond Celebrates ABGT Like We’ve Never Seen Before

Above & Beyond (Jono, Paavo, and Tony) brought Group Therapy to Hong Kong for the first time last month to celebrate the 300th episode of their ABGT radio show.
Building on last year’s iconic 250 celebrations at the Gorge Amphitheater, Group Therapy 300 weekend saw fans from over 50 countries descend on the international hub, watched by over 500,000 people online, and millions listening via FM and Satellite radio partners. Group Therapy also aired live for the first time in China in partnership with Netease.

Saturday night saw Jono, Paavo and Tony’s broadcast ABGT300 (their 750th radio show in total) live from a sold out Asia-World Expo center. The marathon 8-hour show saw Ben Böhmer, Spencer Brown, GRUM, Andrew Bayer and Ilan Bluestone take to the stage, in addition to an immersive 2-hour headline set from Above & Beyond; transforming the arena into a neon-lit street market scene.

Above & Beyond debuted four new original productions, including ‘There’s Only You’ (feat. Zoë Johnston) and ‘Flying By Candlelight’ (feat. Marty Longstaff), taken from their forthcoming ‘Common Ground Companion EP’. Typical of the inclusive spirit of Group Therapy, this year’s Push The Button moment saw members of the China Trance community and Anjunafamily unite on stage to hit play on ‘Sun & Moon’. You can watch Above & Beyond’s headline 2 hour ABGT300 set below.

The 2-hour set is everything and more you could want from an Above & Beyond set, even without the four brand new songs. Although every time Jono, Paavo and Tony get behind the decks it a special, this set shines a bit brighter, the energy is turned up a notch and vibes are as pure as ever.
As if we weren’t already counting down the days till Decadence, now the excitement is almost unbearable. Start 2019 right, grab your tickets before prices go up!
