Sensation has already taken half the world by storm, right from enchanting audiences in its birth town of Amsterdam to captivating audiences in its India debut show two years ago. Sensation is now all geared to scale up and reveal its all new show format “Sensation Rise” in Hyderabad and will be hosting the biggest DJ’s on the planet making for a much awaited and out of the ordinary music festival for its fans in India.
With the artist announcement, Sensation Rise Hyderabad 2018 is making its mark as one of the leading music festivals in India. Welcoming the electronic scene’s most famous artists, coupled with sensational SFX, pyrotechnics and a range of fun activities, fans can look forward to a fantastic night of music and entertainment.
A brief synopsis of the famous artists performing at Sensation Rise Hyderabad 2018 are as given below:
Single-handedly responsible for defining a sound and building a lexicon of bass music unique to India, Nucleya aka Udyan Sagar is undoubtedly the country’s most popular and influential independent artist. Nucleya has made his mark as an Indian dance music producer, producing anthems that are the soundtrack of a new Indian generation – frenetic, loud and unabashedly Indian. The Nucleya sound is now a genre in itself and has spawned the rise of producers making Desi bass. As a trailblazer of this movement, Nucleya’s role in developing the genre in India is no less significant than what Skrillex did for dubstep in the United States or how Diplo and Major Lazer introduced global bass into the mainstream. It’s no coincidence then that Nucleya has been chosen to open for international touring acts and bonafide bass stars like Skrillex, Major Lazer, Diplo, DJ Snake and Flux Pavilion in India.
Nicky Romero has progressed from being a young, musical wunderkind to become one of the most influential artists of his time. As a DJ, producer and mogul whose label is at the forefront of modern electronic dance music, it goes without saying that Nicky is a force to be reckoned with. From the iconic hits “Toulouse” and “I Could Be the One” to his recent “PRTCL,” Nicky’s resume boasts an impressive and lengthy discography of originals, remixes, edits and co-productions, proving again and again his ability to evolve with the ever-changing landscape of electronic music. Perhaps even more telling of his razor-sharp prowess and visionary mindset is the success and impact of his label Protocol Recordings. From the stage to the studio and beyond, Nicky is leaving a lasting imprint on electronic music.
Black sunglasses, a baseball cap flipped backwards, and his amazingly strong sense for hits that generate 9-digit streams and have been moving crowds across the globe for three years now is what distinguishes him as an extremely talented and one of the most successful German artists: Robin Schulz. Robin Schulz began playing smaller clubs as a DJ somewhere in rural Lower Saxony – his beloved home. Today, he knows the entire world: Las Vegas, New York, Tokyo. And what’s even more impressive, the entire world knows him. After performing at renowned events such as London’s iTunes Festival, the Belgian Tomorrowland, Mayday, Nature One Festival, Miami’s Ultra Music Festival, and the Ultra Festival in Japan as well as doing sold-out tours throughout Europe, the US, Asia, and Australia, the rather introverted artist has already joined the ranks of the greats. It is no longer uncommon for Schulz to play in front of 100,000 euphoric party people. Wherever he mans the decks, he sends crowds into a temporary frenzy.
Sander van Doorn
As a generation-defining artist that reshapes our perception of what dance music can be, Sander van Doorn is without a doubt one of the world’s most essential, influential and popular DJ/producers in dance music today. Sander has created his own inimitable sound and style. He is a producer at heart, and started DJing to create exposure for his productions. Today, Sander has performed thousands of shows in every corner of the world and released numerous solo records, yet he is still part of a group of innovative and progressive artists. With three full-length albums, numerous hit-singles, remixes of the world’s biggest artists, sold-out gigs in all major venues and festivals worldwide, his own successful record label and a weekly radio show named Identity, Sander van Doorn continues his musical journey into the heart of fans around the world.
Platinum-selling Dutch DJ, producer and entrepreneur, Sam Feldt, has established himself as one of the most sought-after electronic artists of recent times. Due to his intelligently-crafted crossover sound, Sam has attained incredible achievements and career highlights that place him ahead of his peers and is now ready to build onto these accolades further. Alongside his dynamic DJ sets, Sam is accompanied by his band on stage who bring live elements to his shows. Comprised of trumpet and saxophone players, the band have become a solid staple in his performances. “It’s all about bringing that new energy on stage,” says Sam. “I have used live elements and organic (recorded) instruments a lot. It just makes sense to invole them when playing a live shows, and you definitely see the crowd reacting to it extremely well.” Sam is at the forefront of talented producers to come out of Holland over the past couple of years. Armed with a strong ability to connect with his loyal following in multiple ways, from his music and radio show to digital marketing, Sam consistently continues to push the boundaries of what a young artist in dance music can accomplish in today’s musical landscape. With a wealth of excitement surrounding his career, all eyes are on Sam Feldt and what’s next on the horizon for the Dutch artist.
There is no Sensation without the legendary Mr. White. This pale-faced resident DJ of Sensation perfectly knows how to stimulate the party mood through his house vibes and tech house grooves. Always with full passion and determination behind the decks for just one reason, to give it all he’s got to please the crowd.
Former snowboarding-pro, Jody Koenders – AKA ‘Jody Meyer/Jody San’ – decided to turn into a new direction with his music late-summer 2014 which sparked the emergence of WHOISJODY. His first new baby ‘Feelings’ got signed to Spinnin Records as the #1 track that came out their talent pool. It was quickly noticed by international dance blogs and sites, like Dancing Astronaut. His sound, which he self describes as “Super House” has become a mix between House, Tech House, and Techno, a unique sound with a definite party warranty and emphasis on the finer detail. Hailing from both the Caribbean and Amsterdam – siblings Andy & Dorothy Sherman, better known as Shermanology are set to embark on a whole new chapter in their illustrious career – returning to their roots with a unique blend of soul, jazz, funk, dancehall, reggae, pop and vocal house. Shermanology is showcasing their true love for groovy, vocals and accessible house music highlighted by Dorothy’s soaring vocals and Andy’s bass-loving beats.

Sensation is known to unite millions of people in the universal language of electronic music experiences. Deviating from the notable center stage, RISE will mark the beginning of a new era with an end stage set-up, bringing a new Sensation experience to thousands of people around the world. Sensation RISE stands for breaking free from the worries and boundaries of daily life, letting go, and rising above oneself to experience the ultimate euphoria.

Eric Keijer, Managing Director, Sensation states: ‘After such a successful event in 2016, we are extremely excited to be back to top the last time we were here. Rise is a completely new show with which we’ve tried to challenge ourselves yet again to deliver a state of the art spectacle. We have premiered the show in Mexico and Prague and people have responded fantastically to the new show, the end stage and the overall vibe of the night, setting the tone for what is to come here in Hyderabad. In the end, it’s all about the full experience and we cannot wait to share this with India.’
Sreecharan Atluri, Managing Director, Highbrow states, “We are immensely proud of the fact that such a brilliant international phenomenon has chosen to partner with us and travel Hyderabad for the second time in India with the new concept of Rise which debuted earlier this year.
