Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE) is fast approaching, and there are even more artists ready to join the party in October this year.
One of the most important weeks for the electronic music scene, Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE), is back and looking better than ever this year. There are only a few weeks left before everything kicks off in the Netherlands on October 19-23, and the excitement continues to build with the announcement of awe-inspiring showcases and more in store for attendees. ADE dropped its own jaw-dropping artist lineup earlier this summer, and now they’ve delivered the second wave.
While the first wave included Maceo Plex, Afrojack, and Oliver Heldens, as well as showcases from brands like Anjunadeep and Hospitality, the second wave is also brimming with talent. Immediate headings among names include everyone from Carl Cox and Eric Pridz at Honey Dijon and Peggy Gou. Armin van Buuren will also be present at the ADE this year, as well as others like San Holo, Charlotte de Witte, Brennan’s Heartand more.
Although the festival side of the ADE is really an attraction, the programming of the conference is just as captivating. From one-on-one conversations with big-name artists and their teams to discussions about the future of music and AI, there’s a plethora of information that will be shared with the public. Whether you’re a budding artist, manager, or A&R, if you want to take your career to the next level, there’s no doubt you should attend these panels.
Check announced programming for ADE this year, and be sure to pick up your ADE Pro Pass via their website if you plan to attend. ADE Pro pass holders will have access to all conference keynotes and panels, as well as the official festival program and Arts & Culture program.
