ADE has a new location this year.
Due to major renovations at its old HQ, Felix Meritis, this October will see the global electronic music event relocate to the DeLaMar Theater in the heart of Amsterdam.
Last year, 2,200 artists, 550 speakers and almost 1000 events took place in 140 venues over the five days. Thanks to the new location, the move will allow the event to bring previously separately-housed events such as ADE Dance & Brands under one roof.
Also announced, in this year’s ADE Global View, the 2017 panel program is coming together with Morocco to celebrate the rising club scene and heavy festival line-ups flourishing in the North African country. ADE’s conference schedule will cover the, “growing electronic scenes in South America, Africa and parts of Asia where musicians are mixing local sounds with dance floor beats”, according to the press release.
The 22nd edition of the Amsterdam Dance Event takes place October 18 to 22. Find out more here.
