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.’
