The Amsterdam Dance Event is a five day conference and party from 15-19th October for people who work in the dance industry. The conference highlights are the more than 300 music related events all over Amsterdam.
This year is the 18th annual Amsterdam Dance Event. What started out as a small conference in 1996 with 30 DJs and an approximate 100 visitors, has become the leading electronic music event and the largest club festival in the world.
The ADE Conference
During the daytime, the Amsterdam Dance Event is a platform for professionals active in the dance industry. DJs, producers, record labels, managers, the media, booking agencies, manufacturers and others meet potential business partners, exchange knowledge, attend workshops and provide technical demonstrations. The Amsterdam Dance Event is the one place to network and close deals.
Attending the conference is possible, that is if you are willing to spend a minimum of € 250 for a one day pass, and €340 for all five days. The five day passes grant you access to all festival performances. Registration is required and can be done through the Amsterdam Dance Event website.
The Amsterdam Dance Event Festival
This event is just as alluring for music lovers. During the long weekend, the city will be engulfed by the very biggest names performing in venues all over Amsterdam. Past years Richie Hawtin, Carl Cox, David Guetta, Armin van Buuren and many others will make an appearance. The program for this year is not set yet but we are betting it will be bigger and better than ever!
Here are the numbers: 80 clubs and venues, 2,000 DJs, 300 events and some 300,000 visitors!
