The Lineup

Mr. White

Sensation is not complete without Mr. White. This pale-faced resident DJ perfectly knows how to set the mood and he creates the right vibe with subtle house and tech house grooves. He’s been traveling with Sensation for several years now, rocking dance floors all over the world.


Finding the groove is something that happened naturally for Youri Alexander, commonly known as YAX.X. Being brought up in Amsterdam, YAX.X started playing vinyl at the age of 14 with Hip Hop, House and Electro.

Sem Thomasson


Sem Thomasson is a renowned artist in the Belgium electronic music scene. The young songwriter and DJ gained international fame with his stunning remix work for artists like Flo Rida, Nelly Furtado and Steve Aoki. Thomasson has performed at various international music festivals like Tomorrowland and Tomorrowworld. He played at Tomorrowland for the 7th time in a row this year.

Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano


The Dutch DJ and production duo from Amsterdam released ‘S.O.T.U’ in 2013 in collaboration with Nicky Romero, which was a huge success and ranked 2nd on the charts according to Beatport.

Ummet Ozcan

The Dutch Turkish DJ and producer, Ummet Ozcan, has a huge following worldwide for his new generation style of music and his unique releases which are frequently found to be on top of the charts.



An artist that has made his way to everyone’s playlists, Afrojack is one of the most influential names in electronic dance music today and therefore the perfect artist to get the crowd dancing at Bab Al Shams.

Aly & Fila


The Egyptian trance music duo, Aly & Fila is the most successful group from Egypt. They have an immense loyal following in their country and across the world. Their first release ‘Eye of Horus’ received huge airplay from the likes of Armin Van Buuren, DJ Tiesto, Paul Van Dyk and many others.

The last two editions of Sensation in Dubai were sold out with more than 14,000 people enjoying the utmost nightlife experience. This year, Kristina Fidelskaya partnered up with Sensation Dubai, to give ‘Fashion meets Music’ a new meaning. This will be the first Fashion meets music event of its kind in the region with a truly ground breaking show with a fashion focus and stylish aspect. The Dubai based designer has released an exclusive limited edition white capsule of Women and Men’s t shirts collection specially designed and inspired by the show.
