Held in the Dutch capital October 19-23, Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE) is one of the largest international EDM festivals of the year. Featuring thousands of performances, industry lectures and panels, immersive activations, popup shops, and art installations packed into five insane days, ADE promises to cover all things related to electronic music culture.
This year marks the festival’s 20th anniversary, and to commemorate the milestone a series of special events will take place, so you’re in for a real treat if you’re attending. During the festival, the biggest artists in electronic dance music alongside fresh, upcoming talent will grace us with their presence. Some of our must-see performances include Actress, Afrojack, and a six-hour set (that’s right, six hours) from Tiesto. After you recover from the all night ragers that are sure to ensue, check out the artists showcasing their work, films, installations and performances throughout each day.
ADE features 450 events and 2,200 artists in 140 of the most illustrious and classical clubs and venues, making it the leading electronic music platform in the world. No wonder the festival attracts 365,000 attendees from around the globe. We’re excited to make our way to Amsterdam next week, and by the looks of it, we doubt there will be a dull moment.
