After a four year sabbatical (leave of absence), The White Party returns to The Land of Smiles to further enhance the caliber and status of the EDM scene here in Thailand.
Starting from very humble beginnings the world famous Sensation White Party began its life back in 2000. After the first edition, Miles Stutterheim, brother of Sensation founder, Duncan Stutterheim, and close friend of the Sensation crew, died in a car accident. When the second edition was announced, as a kind of memorial to celebrate Miles' life, visitors were informally asked to dress in white.
With more than 80% of visitors adhering to the tribute, this marked the birth of the well-known Sensation dress code as we know it today. After such an amicable start, back in Ajax FC's famed Amsterdam ArenA, the event has since traveled across 5 continents, been hosted in 36 countries and continues to unite Electronic Dance Music lovers around the globe, year after year.
This year's event in BITEC is set to raise the roof as the indoor arena unfolds to allow for the largest fancy dress rave it has ever seen but sure not to be the last. We say fancy dress, as the dress code is all white and people tend to look rather dapper in white, regardless of the garbs they wear.
The dress code, however, isn't the only thing that is white, uh uh.. The renowned and un-imitable MR White will launch the event as he has done since 2009, bringing each and every event to life with his outlandish looks and stylish elegance on the decks.
Of course, Mr. White will not be the only DJ at the party but the line-up is being kept under wraps for now, so until they pull off the paper we will have to let you know later. You can also keep up to date on developments in line-up from here. You can expect some top headline acts though, if other Sensation events around the globe are anything to go by and they will be a healthy mix of Trance, House and Electro to get your veins pumping through those white garments you'll be donning.
Some of our team were lucky enough to head to Bangkok for the recent initial press launch event, giving all the regional and local media a chance to sample what is planned for the upcoming night in July. Not me though sadly, I, like you, had to get my taste of the flavours Heineken and Sensation are mixing up from the video below...
Looks pretty rad(ical), though right... My calendar is sure enough emptied for the main event and we hope to catch some of you "off-the-wall" music junkies out there as well. Tickets are already on sale and can be grabbed cheap as a budgie right now, as the Early Bird prices are up on the tinterweb already, with limited numbers, of course...
