The world's leading dance event is coming to Toronto's Rogers Centre on
June 1, 2013
TORONTO, March 1, 2013 /CNW/ - On June 1, 2013, Bud Light will
revolutionize what it means to party in Canada by bringing Sensation -
the world's leading dance event - to Toronto for its Canadian debut.
Bud Light presents Sensation will light up the Rogers Centre for more
than 30,000 fans.
"Bud Light presents Sensation will give Canadians the chance to light it
up in a way that they've never done before," said Todd Allen, Brand
Director for Bud Light. "The Canadian clubhouse music scene has been
building momentum for some time. Bud Light saw an opportunity to bring
an event of this caliber to Canada - we want to inspire Canadians to
share in something they will never forget."
Since its inception in the Netherlands in 2000, Sensation has taken the
global clubhouse music scene by storm. More than 70 shows in over 20
countries have attracted more than one million attendees with premier
DJs. The undersea-themed extravaganza The Ocean of White will be the
debut Canadian show.
"The Ocean of White is a wondrous world of nocturnal sea life where
flames shoot from the ceiling, acrobats rappel down from the roof,
giant jellyfish hover above the dance floor and carnival floats part
the crowds. It's an immersive experience unlike anything Canada has
seen before," said Michael Hekking, commercial director of Sensation.
Bud Light presents Sensation will adhere to the all-white dress code
that marks every Sensation event. This tradition was, sadly, born from
a tragic event. Miles Stutterheim, brother of Sensation founder Duncan
Stutterheim and a close friend of the Sensation crew, died in a car
accident in 2001. All visitors were informally asked to dress in white
for that year's show and more than 80% of the visitors adhered to this
tribute. This marked the birth of the well-known Sensation dress code
as we know it today.

award-winning festival Tomorrowland. ID&T founded Sensation in
Amsterdam in 2000, and since then, millions of people around the world
have experienced one of the most spectacular dance and music phenomena
in the world. While Sensation's reputation has grown, the music has
evolved and taken on its own style - not just about booking the biggest
name DJs, but about choosing the people who can make Sensation the best
