Sensation is finally, officially back in Southeast Asia.
As our friends in Indonesia host their first ever Sensation, this week also brings good news to party people elsewhere in the region – the Dutch-origin electronic dance extravaganza has announced its return to Thailand and expansion to Singapore. Beside the white dress code, here’s everything you need to know:
Mark your calendar, the all-white party is coming back to Bangkok for the first time since 2014 is slated for Sunday, July 29 at BITEC Bangna. Meanwhile, its first jaunt in Singapore is happening later on Saturday, September 1 at Changi Exhibition Centre. Unlike the Bangkok edition, the Singapore debut will be held outdoor.
Lineup and shows
Headliners are yet to be announced, but according to event director Eric Keijer, fans can expect “top DJs” and a brand new show – which will start going on tour next month. Google “Sensation Brazil” at the end of March for a sneak peek – featuring classic Sensation elements like light spectacles, pyrotechnics and crowd-wowing dancers.
Veteran host MC Gee, who has been the voice of the party brand for the past eight years, and Mr White, Sensation’s globetrotting resident DJ, will also be present.
Thailand: Tickets will be sold in three stages through Sensation Thailand’s website.
Early bird prices are THB2,900 (General Admission) and THB4,700 (Deluxe, with special souvenir, deluxe entrance and three Heineken drinks). Those who have pre-registered can get their hands on early bird tickets before anyone else on March 1 (10am). Public sale begins on March 2 (10am) until allocated tickets are sold out.
The price goes up to THB3,200 (GA) and THB5,100 (Deluxe) in phase two (March 29 onwards), and to THB3,500 (GA) and THB5,500 (Deluxe) in the final phase (May 4 onwards). Head to Ticketmelon to purchase.
Singapore: Stay tuned for details. Register to gain access to pre-sales before anyone here.
The parties are organised by Dutch entertainment giant ID&T (Tomorrowland, Electric Zoo Festival) and Singapore-based promoter IME. As with the previous two editions in 2012 and 2014, Heineken is once again presenting Sensation Thailand.
