The Sensation dance music festival is set to host a new show, RISE, in Thailand on July 29 at the Bangkok International Trade and Exhibition Center (BITEC).
Originating in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, Sensation’s RISE is said to symbolize the message of freedom and rebirth through certain elements, including water fountains and white light. It is known for hosting shows that represent different atmospheres, among them The Ocean of White, Celebrate Life and Innerspace.
For their Thailand show, Sensation will bring together renowned performers, namely resident DJ Mr. White, Whoisjody, Serbian-Australian DJ Dirty South, KO:YU, Dannic, Sam Feldt and Dash Berlin. MC Gee will host the festival.
Presented by Heineken, tickets can be purchased online with a starting price of ฿3,500 ($109) for general admission. Several categories are available, from deluxe to platinum plus deck. Remember to dress in white as it is the festival’s must-wear dress code.
Previously, Sensation came to Thailand in 2012 for its The Ocean of White show and in 2014 for Wicked Wonderland. The music festival made its debut in Jakarta in February. (wir/wng)
