ADE. You’ve probably heard those three letters before if you’re a dance music fanatic. ADE, or “Amsterdam Dance Event” is the ultimate dance music conference and club festival journey that you just have to check out. Last year we attended this massive event and we thought’d we share 6 reasons why you should too.
1. The Biggest Club Festival in The World
Yes, ADE “Amsterdam Dance Event” is the biggest club festival in the world. ADE features more than 450 events and more than 2,000 DJ’s over five days in more than 115 clubs and venues. More than 365,000 festival visitors from around the world come to Amsterdam for Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE).
2. It is More Than a Festival
ADE isn’t just a festival, or events and parties. It is the leading electronic music platform in the world. ADE offers multiple conferences that connect the music industry together. Whether you are an event promoter, a business professional, a start-up, an aspiring producer or musician, a student, or just a fan, ADE will connect you with the industry professionals that you need.
3. It Takes Place Everywhere in Amsterdam
Amsterdam is well known as the dance music capital in the world, but ADE transforms the city to a huge playground. Be prepared to party in so many different and unexpected places. You can catch Hardwell playing in an Apple store, while Don Diablo playing in a mini cooper dealership, or ODESZA playing an intimate show in an old church. While other parties transform old and abandoned places to real underground parties. You can party to Jamie Jones’s Paradise in an abandoned dockyard , or dance to Richie Hawtin’s Enter event in an old warehouse.
4. Amsterdam Music Festival
AMF “Amsterdam Music Festival” takes place in the same time as ADE, and in the heart of Amsterdam. AMF takes over 3 famous locations for 5 days full of events hosting huge names in the industry. T-Mobile will present AMF Arena who will host huge names like Alesso, David Guetta, and Nicky Romero for 2 days in Amsterdam ArenA. Heineken Music Hall will host 5 nights full of a variety of music including Hardwell Presents Revealed, and Axwell-Ingrosso night. While the infamous Ziggo Dome will host Tiesto’s ClubLife 500 radio show celebration where he’s going to play a special 6-hours set.
5. Party All Day All Night
If you’re one of those who love to leave the party even after the sun rises, or someone who loves to party in the daytime, ADE has got you covered. Events and parties takes place anytime of the day, literary there is no curfew or restrictions. Some events end at midnight, while some go until 7:00 AM! But if you’re not ready to sleep by then, you can check some of the after parties that start in the morning and end in the evening. One of those events is the Breakfast Club that goes from 7:00 AM until 6:00 PM! And yes, they serve breakfast.
6. Dance To Whatever You Like
ADE hosts events to every electronic music genre you can think of. From techno & trance, or house and progressive to HardStyle and Drum and Bass, ADE host them all. For example, If you are a trance family member you can enjoy events like Markus Schulz open to close, or the famous “In Trance We Trust” event. While Techno fans can enjoy a lot of events that include: DGTL who hosts Mosaic by Maceo Plex and Paradise by Jamie Jones, Loveland who hosts ENTER Experiences by Richie Hawtin and Circoloco, Awakenings who host 5 events including Drumcode by Adam Beyer, and many other events. ADE doesn’t stop here: a lot of live electronic acts play “Live” and special events during the festival.
