ADE is unlike any other festival; for five days the city of Amsterdam lives and breathes electronic music. There’s truly something for everyone out there, from secret in-store sessions from your favorite selectors, immersive art installations by renowned artists, exclusive talks with innovators in the festival industry, and, of course, all night raves.

Aside from the parties and night programming, the real magic of ADE is experienced during the day. When else are you given a chance to sit in on an intimate conversation with Richie Hawtin, Modeselektor, and Sophie?A

ADE provides a unique opportunity to learn and connect with artists and musicians during the daytime and then experience feel their music by night. This style of festival really impacted our outlook towards electronic music in a positive way.
