The Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE) is both a music conference and festival and is widely recognized as the global meeting point for the creative industry around electronic music. ADE consists of ADE by Day (conference & festival) and ADE by Night (festival) program, with more than 1000 events in nearly 200 locations, which basically means that the city of Amsterdam breathes electronic music for five days and nights. Can you imagine this? The 24th edition of the Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE) takes place from the 16th-20th of October 2019.
ADE 2018 played host to 400,000 visitors from around the world looking to immerse into all aspects of electronic music culture, and in 2019 we hope to welcome you all again.
Among the first artists to be announced are Amelie Lens, Charlotte de Witte, Helena Hauff and Richie Hawtin, with Ben Klock, Carl Cox, Chris Leibing and Robert Hood all slated to perform as well. ADE will also welcome the likes of Ben UFO, Denis Sulta, HAAi, Joy Orbison, Motor City Drum Ensemble and SOPHIE for the 2019 edition of the festival.
Besides the conference, the ADE by Day program celebrates the best in electronic music culture with art, film, gear demonstrations, live music, photography and technology events all over Amsterdam.
The festival showcases a broad range of electronic music artists, from pioneers to upcoming talent.It is unique in its kind, with almost 140 participating venues including clubs, smaller and cosy venues, concert halls and stadiums, but also more ‘one-off’ locations such as museums or even Amsterdam Central Station. In 2018 the festival featured more than 2500 performing artists.
During ADE, Amsterdam will once again be the centre of the global electronic music industry and the home base for music enthusiasts. Our conference and festival activities showcase what is happening around the world, but should also be a reflection of how creative, innovative, vibrant and inclusive our hometown is. There are numerous topics to address, from local matters such as the rapidly changing landscape for festivals in the Netherlands and Europe, through to inclusivity and tolerance in the music industry on a global scale. We look forward to welcoming creative minds from all over the world to connect, create, do business or just to be inspired,” declares a representative from ADE’s team.
