The world-famous electronic music festival and conference starts on October 18th and lasts until and including the 22nd of October.
The biggest festival for electronic music in the world
Since 1995 Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE) is organized in Amsterdam. This year, 350,000 visitors are expected. Over the years ADE has grown to become the largest festival for electronic music in the entire world.
Music styles that are represented include house, techno, drum & bass and hardcore. So there’s enough choice for everyone to shake, rattle and roll!
During Amsterdam Dance Event, there’s a number of workshops you can visit. There’s ample choice: newly arising producers and music artist, VJs, visual artists and stage designers share their knowledge.
One of the workshops you can attend is the Demo Drop by Spinnin’ Records where you get feedback on your own demo. In addition, our very own Martin Garrix gives a special master class in which he leads you through his production process.
As part of this years edition of ADE, the worlds first Virtual Reality Cinema offers a free and unique VR-experience. Join the journey through abstract landscapes and surrealistic dream worlds, build by talented experimental visual artists.
Hip Hop Yoga
Since the ’70s, hip hop has played an influential roll in the development of electronic dance music. Celebrate the hip hop influence with Barbara Rose during a hip hop yoga session which will definitely prepare you for the long night to come.
On the last day of Amsterdam Dance Event, you can sober up at the ADE Hangover at the NDSM in Amsterdam Noord. While listening to some laid-back dance tunes from DJs and live bands you can enjoy some local foods and drinks. Artists from the Amsterdam region represent themselves at the ADE Hangover market and offer music, vintage fashion and other goods for sale. Sit back and unwind in one of the hot tubs. All free of admission.
