Amidst autumn of 2013, dance music’s trends and activity can be highlighted by Hardwell at the helm of all aritsts, and Sensation making its round across the states following the close of festival season. Before the aforementioned artist had his current anthemic arsenal and before the all white event had reached American soil, the two became one in 2011 at Innerspace, Denmark. Revisit Hardwell’s style at time when he was only skyrocketing towards the superstar status he’s reached today and wake up with one of his throwback Sensation sets from across the Atlantic.
Editors’ Note Warning: The tracklist (found below the break) will evoke severe nostalgia.
As Sensation continues on its US tour, the iconic brand will first make a stop in Las Vegas before heading to Miami, Florida. The first ever ‘Ocean of White’ event in one of dance music’s largest markets, Sensation’s lineup features talent appropriate for such a milestone. On Saturday, October 12th, Sensation resident Mr. White, Nic Fanciulli, Prok & Fitch, MC Gee and the Sensation-staple and production powerhouse Fedde Le Grand will descend on Miami’s Biscayne Boulevard along with thousands of fans in a literal “Ocean of White.”
Walking in to Oakland’s Oracle Arena for Sensation Ocean of White felt like arriving at an underwater gala: the guests were clad in white, the air buzzed with a light chatter, and the blue-tinted room was overrun with elegant, ocean-oriented decorations. Gargantuan jellyfish circled the room, while LED panels projected seaweed prints across the walls. There was a sense of sophistication evident in the design, from the spiral staircase surrounding the stage, to the double catwalks extending outwards from the massive centerpiece.
On September 14th at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, California, Sensation will be kicking off its first-ever US tour. Making additional stops in Las Vegas, Miami and Brooklyn, the tour will be hosted by Fedde Le Grand, Nic Fanciulli, Sébastien Léger, Michael Woods, Prok & Fitch, Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano, and Sensation residents Mr. White and McGee. Tickets are still on sale but we’ve also got a pair of tickets for each show to give away.

Over the weekend Sensation debuted its newest party theme, Into The Wild, at Amsterdam Arena. A menagerie of alabaster tribal elements, the event hosted 15,000 dance music faithfuls for a night that only the iconic Sensation brand could provide. Enlisted to curate the soundtrack to the debut event, Nicky Romero performed an hour and twenty minute set, rising above his illness while he performed his personal catalog of smash hits. Playing a set right in line with the same over-the-top and larger-than-life style that Sensation brings to its production, Romero’s set is a peak time pleasure — one that is jam-packed with some of the biggest tunes EDM has to offer.
After bringing the globally renowned Sensation to North America for the first time last October with Innerspace Brooklyn, and following with an event in Canada, ID&T returns to bring their all-white party to the United States with an expansive tour.

With stops in San Francisco, Las Vegas, Miami, and New York, ticket sales for the next round of Sensation parties will begin on Friday, June 14th at 10am local times. Jump below the break for tour dates, venues, and the corresponding ticket information.
Launched in 2000 by ID&T, the Sensation brand has grown to become the largest global dance music event in the world – to date over 80 Sensation events have been held worldwide. Last year marked the first time the iconic event would touch down on American soil, selling out in minutes and transforming Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn in a sea of white for two days in late October. This fall Sensation returns for an extended US tour, bringing its alabaster aesthetics to a much larger American audience as it invades San Francisco, New York, Las Vegas and Miami.
