This October, European mega-festival Sensation will be heading to American shores for the first time. With over 70 wildly popular events taking place all across Europe, the brand new Barclays Center in Brooklyn will host the inaugural event in the US. When the festival was first announced, it was made clear that unlike the music experiences many Americans are accustomed to, Sensation would not be about the DJ on stage, but the entire audio and visual experience. Thus, this line-up was clearly built upon artists whom organizers can trust to provide the party experience that they are looking for, rather than booking the hottest flavor of the month.
Each night will be headlined by Fedde Le Grand, who is a Sensation veteran, performing at several of their events around the world. Both nights will also kick off with sets from Mr. White, Sensation’s signature character. After that, the nights vary a bit. Different nights will both have a performance from a New York City house legend, but with Friday hosting Dennis Ferrer and Saturday hosting Danny Tenaglia. Friday will close down with individual sets from Joris Voorn and Nic Fanciulli, while Saturday will close with 2000 and One, and Mark Knight.
While these line-ups are solid, Sensation is built more the overall experience. These events tend to be more old-school house in sound, yet extremely high tech in visual experiences. Check out each night’s complete line-up below.
Friday, October 26: Mr. White, Dennis Ferrer, Fedde le Grand, Joris Voorn, Nic Fanciulli
Saturday, October 27: Mr. White, Danny Tenaglia, Fedde el Grand, 2000 and One, Mark Knight
