When you buy Sensation tickets you’re not just in for your everyday, run of the mill dance show or performance. Sensation is an interactive event with DJs, dancers and amazing theatrical effects. Audience members are expected to wear all white, and the performance doesn’t just last for a couple of hours. Sensation audience members should prepare to dance the night away and maybe hit their favourite diner for breakfast when the sun comes up.
How it All Began
Sensation is a phenomenon that started in the Netherlands as a simple concept dreamed up by Eric Keijer and Duncan Stutterheim. Keijer and Stutterheim wondered what would happen if they turned the enormous Amsterdam Arena into the world’s biggest nightclub. Somehow the idea of an all white dress code became a part of the show, making the concept even more unique; and Sensation was born.
Sensation is an ideal event for people who love dance music, club life, night-life and the atmosphere of raves and parties. Musicians, partiers and dancers are all part of every audience. Audiences should expect to take in amazing DJ performances and breathtaking acrobatics and dance performances.
Sensation incorporates technology better than many live shows. Set designers fill venue ceilings with colourful, illuminated LED balls that move with the music. Acrobats fly through the air suspended from the ceiling; all this alongside flame throwers, fireworks, explosions and performers wearing costumes so intricate and dazzling, it’s hard to look away.
The Sensation Tour plays exclusively in the largest arenas and stadiums of the world. Critics have named it the “World’s Leading Dance Event.” Event coordinators strive to create a feeling of cross-cultural togetherness and blissful euphoria at every event. They also strive to make sure every Sensation show takes place in the largest venue possible.
Ever Growing, Ever Changing
By 2017, Sensation had become an integral part of Amsterdam’s arts community for over 18 years. However, the show’s creators decided to start something new in Amsterdam, naming the 2017 show The Final Edition. However, though they planned to start something new in Amsterdam, they plan to continue the same Sensation formula throughout the other venues of the world.
As of 2017, The Sensation Tour Schedule included over 35 countries and was attracting literally millions of visitors every year. Sensation’s creators and event coordinators strive to use the power of music and dance to encourage visitors to connect on a deeper and more human level. In addition, they alter each performance to show respect for the trends and cultural norms of the fans attending the show at that venue. Perhaps this is why the show always attracts the top DJs and musical talent.
In addition to the legendary Mr. White, (one of the most important parts of every sensation show), and the Sensation dance and acrobatic performance team; expect to take in amazing performances by artists like YAX.X, Steve Angellow, Tom Staar, HiRAPARD, James and Ryan Marciano, Yellow Claw, Fedde le Grand, Axwell and Ingrosso, Hardwell and many more.
