Without any false modesty, the organisers call it ‘the World’s Leading Dance Event’. Take a closer look at the facts and figures and you will see why. Sensation is the largest and most successful dance party in the world, drawing 40,000 visitors each year in Amsterdam and hosting international editions in 32 countries. To organise such a mega-event takes a monumental effort.
Metres-high set pieces are inflated, hundreds of costumes are made and a 7,000 m2 dance floor is installed on the grass football field of the Amsterdam ArenA. Once the stage is ready, the fire canons, laser beams, light balls and smoke machines are installed to give visitors the party experience of a lifetime. The preparations for this mega dance party take up to a year. As soon as the gates swing open, the ArenA is ‘gone’. Every year is unique because no two editions of Sensation are the same. So make sure you don’t miss this year’s event!
“Although the preparations take a year, the event itself is set up in 6 days”
