Biography

Sensation is an indoor dance-event which originated in the Netherlands and organized by ID&T. The original event, which ran exclusively in the Amsterdam ArenA for a period of five years until 2005, is now located throughout Poland, Spain, Chile, Germany, Belgium, Hungary, Czech Republic, Latvia, Russia, Denmark, Lithuania, Portugal and Brazil.

In 2008, it was announced that for the first time Sensation would be held on New Year’s Eve in Melbourne, Australia, as well as in Barcelona, Spain.

In 2000 and 2001, it was made up of one edition, just called Sensation, but it has now been split up into two editions: Sensation Black and Sensation White. This was done to differentiate the music and feeling more than would have been possible if it were one event. Sensation Black focuses more on ‘darker’ music, like Hardstyle and Hardcore, whereas Sensation White focuses more on House and Trance. Every year, Sensation also releases two doublediscs (Black and White) and two singles they call the Anthem.

Note: The names of both events have been changed: Sensation (formerly Sensation White), and BLACK (formerly Sensation Black).

The first edition of Sensation, in 2000, did not sell out. The media announced that it was sold out in order to boost interest in the event, which eventually attracted 20,000 people. In this first edition, the DJs only used one side of the Amsterdam Arena as the stage. Later editions have the stage in the middle.
