If you’re a fan of the electronic music and festivals then you should definitely be familiar with the Amsterdam Dance Event. The Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE) is the leading electronic music platform and the biggest club festival in the world for the whole spectrum of electronic sub-genres. Genial, right?
Since the ADE has just closed its doors the last weekend, I decided that it was the perfect timing to have it featured on our page!
The Amsterdam Dance Event is organised every year at the end of October and it attracts millions & millions of attendants from all around the globe. A few years ago and while living in the Netherlands, I had the chance to attend this magnificent and super well-organised event; the whole city of Amsterdam transforms literally into a huge music venue; the week-long showcase explores the depths of the genre through a series of club nights, discussions and conferences in venues and spaces across the city.
ADE's multiple conference tracks offer the ultimate annual business and inspiration platform in the field of electronic music, featuring dedicated programming for business professionals, start-ups, aspiring producers and musicians, students, VJs, visual artists and stage designers. At the same time, multiple venues welcome some of the most renown worldwide Dj’s and the party doesn’t stop until the early morning hours.
Even if you’re not a fan of the electronic music, the ADE weekend is a perfect time to visit the Dutch capital; the city is buzzing with tourists while events and concerts are being held outdoors almost in every neighbourhood. It’s a great time to explore and dance yourself off till the sun comes up! The event covers multiple tastes and guarantees you the time of your life; the mostly free daytime program features a wealth of dance music-related exhibitions, films, documentaries, DJ showcases, gear master classes and artist MusicTalks, taking place across Amsterdam's five main districts, utilising historical locations and unique venues across the city.
