Armin van Buuren Rules Top Facebook Live Videos Chart With Untold Festival Broadcast


The DJ/producer’s seven-plus-hour set was split into two separate Facebook Live uploads, the first of which leads the August 2019 tally.

Armin van Buuren returns to No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Facebook Live Videos chart, reigning on the August 2019-dated list with a live performance video from Romania’s Untold Festival.

The chart, the latest of which recaps August 2019 activity, is a monthly look at the widest-reaching and most-reacted-to videos posted by musicians on Facebook Live, as tracked by media analytics company Shareablee. Rankings are determined by a formula that blends reactions, comments, shares and first-seven-days views.

“Proud to be here for Untold’s fifth anniversary, let’s make it a night to remember!” van Buuren captioned the Aug. 2 post, which chronicled over five hours of his seven-and-a-half-hour set at the Romanian dance festival.

What happened to the other two-ish hours of the performance? Fear not; they were featured in a second Facebook Live video, which just so happens to come in at No. 9 on the August 2019 list.

The DJ/producer’s five-hour video reaches No. 1 as the overall leader in two of four chart metrics: comments (30,000) and shares (7,000), according to Shareablee. The video was also reacted to 22,000 times and was watched 535,000 times in its first seven days.

The most-reacted-to video on the August 2019 list comes Alicia Keys. Her 40-minute Aug. 25 upload of a live performance received 36,000 reactions and was also highly viewed, with 557,000 clicks, enough to debut at No. 2 on Top Facebook Live Videos.

The most-watched clip, meanwhile, is the No. 4 video, an Aug. 7 post from La Septima Banda. The upload, which was watched 684,000 times in its first seven days, showed the band performing for nine-year-old Valentin, who has leukemia.
