March 12th, 2011. The day has finally come. SENSATION. I had been planning on going since the second day in Luxembourg. What is Sensation you ask? A 9 HOUR RAVE in Hasselt, Belgium. Now this was the major leagues of raging. My 21 years of life have prepared me for this.
So pre Sensation was a but rocky and drama filled. Had a last minute change of plans of who I was going with, but it worked out better in the end. I went with a huge group of MUDECers. I woke up around 12 to my roommate's friend walking in my room showing me her outfit. It was so outrageous and I loved it. My roommate went all out. Wings and everything. Looked a bit like a street walker but I loved it. The dress code/theme was all white. You had to wear a white top and white bottom or you wouldn’t be let in
So after we were all dressed and ready to go we walked out to catch the bus. It was such a gorgeous day. One friend had a long coat on and appeared to have no clothes on since she had shorts on and wearing wings. My roommate had a short dress on and thigh high stocking with wings in hand. Cars were honking at her and adults were covering their children’s eyes. Priceless. When we waited at the bus stop a Luxembourgish woman was saying angels to us and that get some sun on your legs since they had little clothes on. Pretty amusing. My roommate then proceeded to put her wings on and broke them already. Fail. We got on the bus and one girl had to side step in order to get down the aisle. We def caught everyones attention. We then went to a grocery store to get more alcohol and find glue for my roommates wings. Alcohol check, glue no.
We met up with the group on the train. Someone happened to have glue for my roommates wings. Then our 4 hour train ride to Liers began
We were finally in Hasselt. There were people in white everywhere. So many Americans, it was glorious. We took a bus to the arena. Sold my the extra ticket I had. It was awesome getting extra cash. Sort of remember this. We waited in line at the arena and finally rushed in. this place was huge and UNREAL. Techo music was playing but it didn’t officially start. We were already having a great time. then huge explosions and craziness happened and Sensation had started. The dj was in the middle of the arena on a 3rd level platform. When it started we rushed to the 2nd level to overlook the thousands of people. We raged up there for awhile. The lights were so freaking cool. Neon colors everwhere and black lights. Every one looked so cool in all white glowing. We got neon gloves which looked bad ass in the black lights. We were raging to awesome djs all night. I found some guy, this was all blurry to me at this point. Sensation guys were taking our picture and this guy i was with was crazy in general and outrageous when our picture was taken, but I loved it
I started walking around trying to find my friends. Now this place is huge; 45,000 people all dressed in white. It was a little after 12 when I was lost. I got tired and sat down trying to spot them. I made another round to find them. I luckily found 2 girls and they said you can go to the bathroom and they will wait outside. I come back out and they are gone. SERIOUSLY?!?! So now I was reallyyyy lost. I walked around a lot and then gave up. I sat down for awhile and periodically went looking around. Talked to an American studying abroad for a little bit. I then was starting to freak out and think I would never find anyone and not be able to get into my locker and not get home. A little after 2am I found someone from Miami. I pathetically told her I was lost for nearly 2 hours and couldn’t find anyone. I hung out with them for a little bit. Sat at the top of the arena over looking everyone. Then I went back down to dance. I had cool neon gloves and rockin it. I saw a guy from Miami and followed him. Apparently Miami kids were at the 2nd level by the dj almost the whole time. I was soooo relieved to find them
We got back home and I passed out til 7pm. My ears were still ringing and I was still covered in glitter. But honestly one of the craziest nights of my life. I raged like no other. SENSATION!!!!
