The Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE) is the world’s largest and most influential club-based festival and conference for electronic music featuring over 1,000 events and 2,500 artists over five days in 200 clubs and venues. ADE attracts over 400,000 people from all over the world to the city, making Amsterdam one of the busiest clubbing cities in the world.
After the 2020 hiatus, the highly anticipated conference has announced it will be held this in person year from October 13th – 17th 2021 thanks to widespread vaccination and testing in the Netherlands. (Bu that doesn’t mean to be uncareful!).
This is an important year for ADE since it marks the 25th anniversary making it one of the most anticipated events by artists and fans alike. Many venues have already been announced, like Panama, Melkweg, Paradiso, and Concertgebouw as well as organizers such as DGTL, Dockyard, Elrow, and Audio Obscura. And last but not least, many of your favourite artists like Avalon Emerson, Oliver Heldens, and Dave Clarke will be performing.
In a great initiative from the ADE Foundation, it is expanding its support to the live music industry by inviting artists and music professionals to become an active part of the road to ADE 2021 on its online B2B (business-to-business) platform, completely free of charge.
That’s not all; the ADE opened registration of ADE Pro to music professionals, an annual global 3-day conference for the electronic music industry where industry professionals and leaders gather for a great networking opportunity, deal-making and marketing.
