The Amsterdam Dance Event is a five day conference and party from 18-22nd October for people who work in the music industry. The conference highlights are the more than 300 music related events all over Amsterdam.
This year is the 22nd 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 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 €450 for all five days. The five day passes grant you access to all festival performances as well. 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 and fans as those working in the business. 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 will be bigger and better than ever!
Here are the numbers: 120 clubs and venues, 2,200 DJs, 300 events and nearly 400,000 visitors! And that’s just the festival. The conference attracts around 7,000 attendees.
For almost all events, tickets can be purchased through the website of the Amsterdam Dance Event, or through the websites of the respective venues. For some events there is no pre-sale and tickets can only be purchased at the door. The website of the Amsterdam Dance Event has a full overview of all events and availability of tickets.
