Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE) is a colossal synchronization of industry workers, record labels, ravers, media, and, of course, musicians from around the world. Uniting in the picturesque city-scape of Amsterdam, nobody could ask for a more perfect location for the most exciting week in dance music.

ADE consists of a daytime conference & festival and nighttime festival program, with a total of more than 1000 events in nearly 200 locations. Which basically means that the city of Amsterdam breathes electronic music for five days and nights.

Ravers from all walks of life flock to Amsterdam in search of the grooviest, most-cutting edge dance music in the world. From fist-pumping big room house heads to the depths of black leather-daddy industrial techno, ADE showcases it all.

While much of the hype is around the nighttime events, ADE is most importantly a conference and a platform for the industry to collaborate and work together to further allow nightlife to foster safe and inclusive communities. One of their flagship conference events, ADE University, will take minds from across the globe to discuss sustainability, inclusivity, and diversity within club culture.

This push to open dialogue on inclusivity within dance music is neatly reflected in its nighttime programming. Sure, you’ve got every big name in dance music locked and loaded, but take a deeper look at the 2000+ acts showcased over the week; you get a hand-picked list of next year’s headliners.

With over 250 events, we can’t even begin to tell you where to start. Want and inside tip? Get an all-access ADE pass, stumble into any event, meet some friends and get lost in the most exciting week of the year.
