After 12 years of producing more than 70 Sensation events for millions of visitors in more than 20 countries, Netherlands based ID&T, set up shop last October at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Known for creating a sea of white, the much-anticipated, all-house international tour, brought thousands of colorless-clad revelers to Brooklyn… and this ain’t no kiddie rave.

Sensation founder and CEO Duncan Stutterheim first began the event to celebrate the life of his brother, Miles, who sadly died in car crash. To relish life, Stutterheim invited everyone to wear white attire instead of standard black garb. It became a yearly ritual that grew into a movement with a positive attitude to be happy, to dance and celebrate with your friends. We are preparing for the four U.S. installments of this momentous occasion taking America by white storm in every way possible. Here is some photos from ID&T of Sensation’s growth from humble beginnings, as well as some never-before-seen original sketches of the storied party of the season.
