Live Acts

"I have an extra. For those who don't know: Live means playing keyboards and everything LIVE. Thank you." -Piet Bervoets, 09-06-2012

That's right! One of Rank 1's outstanding features is their infamous live act in which they take about half an hour to an hour to treat ravers to a selection of their own tracks (or favorite Classics) played on keyboards and improvising track arrangements LIVE (on the spot!). They rocked Trance Energy with a live show no less than four times, even though the last time was more of a surprise gimmick than a specifically planned live performance like at the 2005, 2002 and 2000 editions. They dominated Sensation 2001, dressed in white, alongside the 30.000 something ravers in the Amsterdam ArenA. Well over a decade since then however, they haven't lost the touch one bit, with one of their longest live performances ever having taken place in the United States: Their Dreamstate SoCal Live performance of November 2017 contained X tracks and lasted over XX minutes! Over here you can find many of their live acts: [http://www.mixcloud.com/Rank1Fan/playlists/rank-1-live-acts/] Be sure to check out the whole list! Also, at the bottom of this page you will find two cool fan reworks of the unreleased, live performed collaboration with Marco V!
