Norway is heating up for the very first Norwegian edition of Sensation. The Telenor Arena will be transformed into the Ocean of White on Saturday 16th April 2011. We are proud to announce the DJ’s that will headline your Sensation in Oslo:
From the humble beginnings in Aalesund to the critically acclaimed prince of House music in Norway, his desire to share his sound with the masses has never diminished. As the first Norwegian to be asked to compile a BBC Radio One Essential Mix at the tender age of 22 and being voted Norway’s number one DJ multiple years in a row, Nils could be forgiven for thinking he’d already made it, but his love of music is what drives him to continue to innovate and push back the boundaries of the Norwegian scene.
A definite Sensation favourite and champion of genre-crossing productions; Sander van Doorn continues his domination of dance floors worldwide. He has produced sounds at a level most can only dream of. Drawing upon the best elements of various genres, he is able to create a potent mix that has fans coming back for more. After getting multiple Sensation crowds in a frenzy with that distinct and energetic ‘SvD’ sound, he is armed and ready to deliver the goods once again in Oslo.
After an unforgettable Sensation debut in Germany at the start of 2011, we are proud to welcome Funkagenda once again as one of the headliners of the first Norwegian edition. A devoted passion for music, alongside an embrace of technology, has solidified his position at the vanguard of the ‘tough but melodic’ big room house sound. Armed with fresh upfront cuts, blinding mash-ups and unparalleled energy he will get you into the groove in no time at all.
He is without a doubt one of the hottest house music talents to come out of Sweden in the last 5 years and his killer track ‘Bromance’ was the anthem of 2010 and one of the highlights at the Sensation Germany NYE countdown. Other hits like ‘My feelings for you’ and ‘Ryu’ have firmly established him as a global force to be reckoned with. A smashing Sensation debut in Russia last year is going to be continued in Oslo. Norway, get ready for Avicii!
The truest thing that can be said of Benny Benassi is that he plays and produces the kind of music that you can’t help but dance to. His ability to blend catchy melodies with bumping electro sounds, brings back the fun to the dancefloor. He will forever be associated with the global phenomenon ‘Satisfaction’, but his fans know him for bringing the kind of energy, and verve that most DJ’s can only dream about.
If you were to define the term ‘dance music purist’, you’d take into consideration a number of factors… Knowledge, passion and substance. Combine them together and you get Marco V. With multiple editions of Sensation under his belt, he knows how to set the dance floor on fire. Some people are born with music running through their veins and Marco V is one of them — a musical chameleon and crowd pleaser whose musical fire burns on and on.
