The Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE), the world’s leading event for electronic music, will take place from October 16th to the 20th, 2019. The organisers are expecting around 400,000 national and international visitors for this 24th edition.
Director Mariana Sanchotene has stated: “During ADE, Amsterdam will once again be the centre of the global electronic music industry and the home base for music enthusiasts. 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.”
“There are numerous topics to address, from local matters such as the rapidly changing landscape for festivals in the Netherlands and Europe, through to inclusivity and tolerance in the music industry on a global scale. We look forward to again welcoming creative minds from all over the world to connect, create, do business or just to be inspired,” added Sanchotene.
The ADE, an initiative of Buma, has grown into the world’s largest club-based festival and conference for electronic music. Last year’s edition featured over 2,500 artists and 550 speakers in almost 200 venues. The five-day event 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. For more information about ADE head here!
