Finally, after months of speculation, we finally know who has been tapped to perform at the Sensation's Ocean of White tour stop at Miami's American Airlines Arena on October 12.
Fedde Le Grand, Nic Fanciulli and Prok & Fitch, along with Sensation resident DJ Mr. White and MC Gee are on the bill. It's the exact same bill that appeared at the September 14 Oakland, California date. Other acts announced to appearance on the U.S. tour were Michael Woods, Sébastien Léger, and Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano -- but they'll be skipping the Magic City show.
If you are unfamiliar with the Sensation brand of EDM events, let us bring you up to speed. First started in Amsterdam, Sensation tries to live up to its name by offering a full sensory experience through music, props, lighting, pyrotechnics, water, and dancers. The event is very house (and, at times, techno) driven, so you aren't necessarily going to find U.S. chart-topping EDM acts on this tour -- but that's really not a bad thing. We'd take Le Grand and Fanciulli any day over Tiësto and any of the guys formerly of Swedish House Mafia.
Sensation expects anywhere from 30,000-50,000 revelers at the Miami stop, which will include "200 different types of pyrotechnical effects, 22 water fountains and choreographed flying acrobatics." There is a strict all-white dress code and, better yet, this is a 21-and-over event -- no kiddie ravers to disrupt your night!
Tickets are still available starting at $150 for general admission and $250 for deluxe via sensation.com.
If you can't wait until October 12, here's a few photos, courtesy of Sensation, of what went down during the Oakland event.
