Dutch DJ (and one of the best in the world, if not the best) Armin van Buuren played in the celebrations of the inauguration. I've found this video really amusing. And some comments are funny. In his Twitter account, AvB seemed really happy and proud to be part of the festivities.

That was fantastic when they came up on stage! I loved it when the king was signalling the conductor to come over

Thank you for all the pictures!

I agree with you. The Netherlands can be very proud of their Queen who is just MARVELOUS. I loved her blue dress and sapphire during the inauguration. Congratulations to the new King and Queen.

Just watched the video of it! How COOL! I think I'm really going to love King WA and Queen Maxima a LOT! And I am truly seeing his personality coming through now, loving it!

The king, queen and princesses going to greet the orchestra and Armin van Buuren was decided on the day itself. The mayor said beforehand that it would not be possible since the quay side was too high and the idea was initially cancelled. On the boat he was called while he was on the boat by a lady in waiting, if he still didn't want the king at the concert. He said no, but the lady-in-waiting laughngly said 'you won't be able to pull that off'.

The mayor also said that it was the request of the king and queen that the mayor and his wife would also be present in the boat.

Those little girls are so ready for the world stage, they have such poise and charm in front of the crowds. And I got a kick out the smiling violinist watching them at the 2:40 mark when they were exiting the stage.

Apparently something went wrong during the Bolero.
You couldn't hear the set that Armin Van Buuren made through the orchestra.
clip (in dutch)

Armin Van Buuren made a set to play with the orchestra on Bolero.
And the orchestra played during his new song.

I had been wondering about that. I thought it was strange that I couldn't hear him, while he obviously was doing something. Pity.

Despite sound problems, it was a successful day for Armin van Buuren. The encounter with the royal couple was a highlight of his life. "That was a moment I will never forget," he said Wednesday at RTL Boulevard.

The DJ emphasized that it was totally unexpected. "They were to stay on the boat, because the dock was too high. Then I suddenly saw the princesses come running to the right of me." The DJ claims to have received text messages from all over the world afterwards.
