The world’s leading Sensation will come to the Wiener Stadthalle, Vienna. Sensation will present their mind-blowing new show ‘The Ocean of White’, which premiered at the Amsterdam Arena on the 5th of July 2008. The concept of such a unique event was conceived by ID&T, the number one event organiser in the Netherlands. Sensation has now become the flagship event on ID&T’s calendar, celebrating it’s 10th edition this year, and the company is very proud and excited to be coming to Austria in 2009. Duncan Stutterheim, CEO and founder; ‘The Austrians are well known for their party spirit, and we are very happy to finally bring Sensation to Austria.’
Sensation’s inaugural event was held in Amsterdam back in 2000, and this multimedia spectacle now sells 40,000 tickets each year to visitors from across the globe within hours. Innovative staging techniques, lightshows and lasers, video projections and live cameras, not to mention the fact that every single reveller is dressed head-to-toe in white, all help to create an atmosphere that makes Sensation the phenomenon it is. The spectator genuinely becomes part of the strange and alluring dream world, and the only way to fully appreciate the surreal ambience of the event is to experience it first-hand – along with many thousands of others at the Wiener Stadthalle!
Nine years after the world’s leading Sensation debuted in the Amsterdam ArenA, other cities across Europe and the world have discovered the unforgettable experience that is Sensation. In 2007, the event was staged in seven European countries, from Belgium and Germany to Poland and the Czech Republic, and was held in 12 countries worldwide in 2008, including Chile and Australia, to include for the first time in 2009, along with 18 other countries – Vienna, Austria.

It has been an ‘On the Road’ year for Sebastian Ingrosso, 2007 seeing him touring the world – after a slew of releases in 2005 and 2006, as well as the Swedish House Mafia take-over of the Miami scene and of Amnesia’s main stage in Ibiza. Sebastian, already a Sensation resident, has impressed the crowds at Sensation Germany NYE and now will win over the audience immediately.
With “Nobody Likes The Records That I Play” the entire world took notice of Tocadisco alias Roman Böer. He surely has to be considered as one of the top electronics acts around at the moment. Learning by doing is certainly this man’s motto, and within an extremely short period of time the studio wizard taught himself how to record and produce tracks, including his highly acclaimed album ‘Solo’, which featured hits such as Better Begin, Street Girls and Morumbi. But it is the interaction with the audience and the buzz of playing live that really gets Tocadisco excited, and he plans to bring this contagious enthusiasm to Hungary.
