The chart is led by van Buuren, whose July 21 performance at the Belgian festival was streamed from his Facebook account.

Armin van Buuren lands two videos inside Billboard’s Top Facebook Live Videos chart for July 2018, including one at No. 1.

The chart, whose latest edition recaps July 2018 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.

van Buuren rules the latest ranking thanks to a live stream of his performance at Tomorrowland in Belgium. The 2018 edition of the festival was held July 20-22 and 27-29; van Buuren’s video, however, was from a July 21-dated stream.

The clip lands top honors in three of the four chart categories, leading the way in comments (36,000), shares (26,000) and views in its first seven days (1.9 million), according to Shareablee.

A stream of the DJ/producer’s July 28 performance at the festival, meanwhile, reaches the chart at No. 6.

While van Buuren’s July 21 Tomorrowland performance leads in comments, shares and views, it’s Guns N’ Roses’ July 21 video from Sweden that earns the most reactions (71,000 to van Buuren’s 61,000). The rock band, which has led the Top Facebook Live Videos chart multiple times since its inception in 2017, ranks at No. 2 with the video, which shows a live performance of “November Rain.”

Meanwhile, in addition to van Buuren’s Tomorrowland performances, three other sets from the festival reach the 10-position ranking: Tiesto (No. 3), Afrojack (No. 7) and Nicky Romero (No. 10).
