It was a long 50-minute train ride from downtown tokyo all the way to the Makuhari Messe on the eastend of Tokyo. Sensation is a Dutch production so I had to represent my roots.

I honestly couldn't believe my eyes, the ratio must have been 70% girls to 30% guys, ingredients for a very successful evening.

I also met up with friends who I hadn't seen in a couple of years, the funniest thing of the night must have been an obsessed Japanese girl, that jumped the fence and got on stage to take a photo with her favorite DJ.
