Toronto experienced the return of Sensation and it was wild. This year’s edition of the event featured a giant snake over the grounds of the Rogers Centre and an abundance of fountain water shooting up at key points of the DJ sets throughout the night.

I found Into The Wild more put together than last year’s edition. The production elements were more refined. I really enjoyed the dancers holding snakes that were hooked up to smoke canons.

Wearing all white added an awesome element to the overall vibe of the event where light becomes more prominent as it reflects from the clothes. This time around they introduced bracelets with LED lighting that interacted with the music and specific moments throughout the show. This was a beautiful sight to take in while standing from the seating area. The lights changed colours throughout so it didn’t get boring at all. As usual, ID&T brought an amazing laser system; no party is complete without amazing lasers.

The music was very fitting for the theme. Things started slow with Mr. White, Baggi Begovic and Eric Prydz with lots of progressive and tech house. The night became more of a party with Afrojack and Bingo Players as they played a big room vibe for the stadium.

A big improvement from last time was the entrances; it was much easier to move around to meet your friends in the stadium and the dance floor was roomy with no people pushing and shoving. The rotating DJ booth is a staple for Sensation events so the show was amazing no matter what angle you saw it from.

Overall, I had an amazing night and my social media feeds were still lingering with photos and statuses about how great of a spectacle it was. I will continue going to Sensation events for the rest of my life that’s for sure!
