Over the last 15 years, Sensation has proven to be a golden formula. Although the concept has hardly changed over time, the musical direction shifted significantly. At first the emphasis was primarily on trance music, but in 2007 that changed to house. Much to the regret of trance fans, the organisation felt it was a strategic move: trance was on its way out and Sensation was keeping up with the musical trends.
Organiser ID&T feels that Sensation is much more about the music than the concept. Set, acts, light, sound and show: Sensation is a feast for all senses. In a football stadium transformed into a spectacular dance hall, 40,000 visitors dressed in white dance the night away to the beats of the best DJs in the world. Every major dance artist has graced the stage of Sensation: David Guetta, Carl Cox and Martin Solveig, as well as Dutch superstars Tiësto, Armin van Buuren, Hardwell, Afrojack and Martin Garrix.
