The Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE) has grown into the world’s largest club-based festival and conference for electronic music. Set to take place October 16-19, the event will likely draw in around 400,000 international visitors for the 24th edition.
Alongside the multiple conference tracks addressing the latest business, cultural and technological trends, and festival programming that showcases the diversity of electronic music and its many sub-genres, ADE is committed to once again enhancing the daytime activities in 2019 through partnerships with cultural institutions and multi-disciplinary collaborations that engage with the broadest possible range of the creative industries.
“During ADE, Amsterdam will once again be the centre of the global electronic music industry and the home base for music enthusiasts, Director Mariana Sanchotene stated in a press release. “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.”
Last year, ADE featured over 2,500 artists and 550 speakers in almost 200 venues. The five-day event attracts visitors from over 100 countries and features every conceivable aspect of electronic music culture, with dedicated conference programming and an extensive art, film, gear, live music and pop-up program spread across the city of Amsterdam.
The complete conference and festival program will be announced over the coming months. Visit ADE’s website for more information about the 2019 event.
