The Sensation Festival
Whacked Out Media
The Sensation Festival , known as the White Party is an electronic music event that blends the best DJs from around the globe, several international acts, light effects and thousands of spectators.
On March 5, 2016, Hyderabad hosted the first-ever edition of Sensation in India. The event occurred in the presence of 30,000+ audiences, in the iconic white dress code with international DJs including Mr. White, Lost Frequencies, Axwell, Afrojack, and Laidback Luke among other performers.
With the aim to promote the event digitally and drive engagement through influencer based social media amplification the organizers collaborated with Whacked Out Media.
The campaign was driven with an influencer campaign as they felt that the message would be conveyed rapidly, with a greater impact if people with some recognition and credibility deliver it.
Audience was a key tool in deciding influential Twitter users thus they decided to use a mix of influencers who had the maximum connections to Sensation’s target audience.
Before fixating on which celebrities they would use as influencers to promote the event, they scrutinized their followers profile to understand if they were the right fit with the festival's target group. The #SensationIndia and #UniteInWhite were used for this campaign.
