Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE), the world’s leading event for electronic music, will take place from 18-22 October, 2017.
Organisers are expecting around 375,000 national and international visitors for the 22nd edition.
ADE, an initiative of Buma, is the world’s largest club-based festival and conference for electronic music. The event continues to grow and develop each year, with last year’s edition featuring over 2,200 artists and 550 speakers in a record-breaking 140 venues.
Richard Zijlma, ADE director, said: ‘Amsterdam is the centre of the global electronic music scene during ADE, a hotbed for cultural and technological innovation. It’s amazing to see that thousands of delegates and music enthusiasts are spending more and more time in the city each year.’
Alongside the night program, the extensive daytime conference has also been expanding year on year. The organisers are committed to growing the day and nighttime activities through more partnerships with both new and established cultural institutions.
ADE is taking its activities abroad once again in 2017, with an event in in Mumbai, India and showcases at SXSW, in Austin, USA.
From 23-25 February, ADE Global Sessions Mumbai will host interactive Q&As with top artists, exclusive industry discussions, networking and speed dating sessions, strategy meetings, master classes and much more as part of ADE’s on-going commitment to connect dance culture worldwide.
In addition, ADE will present a selection of ADE showcases at South by Southwest (SXSW) in March.
