Amsterdam’s New Sensation

Amsterdam Sensation

Amsterdam super club Sensation promises to thrill and inspire travellers this year. The electro music festival is internationally celebrated with events across five continents and the festival returns to the Amsterdam ArenA on 8 July 2017.

Famous for it’s all white dress code and illuminated staging and visual design; Sensation is an incredible spectacle for dance music fans.

Over 60,000 people are expected to attend this year and you can have a sensational time across the city too. Amsterdam is renowned for its canals, bicycles, tulips and laid back lifestyle, but beyond this you will find a city brimming with culture, style, and an incredible dance scene.

Amsterdam’s infamous Red Light district has changed significantly in recent years. Hipster cafes and gourmet restaurants are opening up all the time, making it a chilled destination for both locals and travellers alike. Boutique hostels and concept stores are also on the rise.

The Dutch capital is a must-visit city for artistic travellers, especially if you want to check out new galleries in Jordaan and post-industrial bars in Noord. You can also explore green spaces like Vondelpark, or get some culture at the Rembrandt House Museum and Anne Frank’s House.

Amsterdam is a sensational place to visit whether you’re a dance fan or not. Never is the city more alive than during the summer months, when the city’s streets, canals and parks transform themselves into a beehive of parties and festivals.

From street art to vegan bars, there’s something for everyone in Amsterdam – and with many of the city’s festivals featuring live bands, foodie stalls and pop-up bars, there’s no better place to soak up some vibes when the sun is shining.
