Last Sensation in Amsterdam

With 18 years of great memories, exciting performances, state-of-the-art production, and many thousands of all-white outfits, ID&T's Sensation Amsterdam meets a bitter-sweet end.

The Sensation parties are a huge affair. Dance fans congregate, often in all-white clothes to match the popular Sensation White theme, to groove to house in all its many forms while fire spews from some giant, rotating stage – or maybe giant jellyfish floated through the air, or women spun from hanging circles. It was a very extravagant affair, and a very successful one as well, but after July 8, 2017, it will be time to move on.

“Since 2000, Sensation has been one of the pillars of ID&T. We had the idea to transform the ArenA into the biggest club in the world,” ID&T Founder Duncan Stutterheim is quoted in a press release. “That was a success. With the theme White we have also always celebrated life, not only in our own country but globally. Our dream to have everyone dance in white has come true. I do understand, however, that present-day ID&T has to take a new step. And that begins with saying goodbye to Sensation in our own country. On July 8 I will take leave of Sensation with an enormously good feeling, but at the same time I’m also curious about what will be next.’

The last Sensation comes to Amsterdam Arena and will adhere to “The Final” theme. Performers include the ever-present Mr. White, Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano, Hardwell, Axwell & Ingrosso, and the DJ with the most Sensation performances to his name, Fedde Le Grand. The latter will perform a special megamix of greatest hits from Sensations' throughout the years. Fans will also be wow-ed by one secret headliner and a send-off set from a big group of Dutch DJs all going back-to-back in finale.

While the Sensation brand will continue to exist abroad, this does certainly mark the end of a certain era. Tickets for the last Sensation Amsterdam are on sale now, and fans are encouraged to head over to Sensation online for full travel package details.
