It has been a long wait ever since Sensation announced its India debut. Speculation has been rife about the lineup announcement and the direction that the event will take musically. The recently released Sensation line-up is a mix of fan favourites and quite a few top billing artists. Laidback Luke, the Mix Mash boss, took to Facebook earlier today to confirm his presence at the ‘World’s leading dance event’. The event is scheduled for March 5, 2016, at Gachibowli stadium in Hyderabad.
The Filipino-Dutch DJ will be headlining Sensation India, a favourite for his unrelenting energy that he brings to his blockbuster house sets. The music heavyweight is a well-respected legend in the dance music scene and has acquired a cult following for his MixMash radio and his performances at landmark events like EDC, Electric Zoo, Ultra, Tomorrowland and Creamfields. Luke will be bringing his unique energy, in his case ‘chi’, to India at Sensation. Another interesting titbit is that this House master is also an accomplished Kung Fu champion, while not mixing up club bangers in the studio. We might get a glimpse of his Zen moves at Sensation and maybe a sneak peek into his new album ‘Focus’.
Axwell, the Swedish powerhouse and one-third of erstwhile super-group Swedish House Mafia, will also be coming to Sensation India. Axwell has amassed quite a following in India, especially after his recent India tours and headlining Supersonic last year along with Disclosure. His love for India keeps him coming back and we just can’t seem to get enough of him.
AfroJack and Lost Frequencies are also making a pit stop at Sensation India. Afrojack’s recent release, ‘Hollywood’ with Hardwell under the Revealed recordings label, has further built up the anticipation for his latest appearance. If his gig at Hyderabad in 2014 is anything to go by, he sure has a huge fan base that will turn out in his support. The stellar line-up will be supported by Sensation resident, the enigmatic Mr White, who will present the MegaMix, a compilation of dance hits, that is a crowd favourite and a key part of every Sensation event.
