Amsterdam Dance Event 2018 Dates Have Been Announced

Start planning your trip! Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE), the world’s leading event for electronic music, has announced its 2018 dates and this year will take place from the 17th to 21st of October, 2018. Once again the organizers behind the massive yearly event are expecting roughly 400,000 national and international visitors for what is set to be another record-breaking year.

2018 will see a series of activities with focus on the South Korea market. ADE Director Richard Zijlma states:

“The South Korean electronic music scene is growing rapidly, thanks to technological innovation and smart crossovers. During ADE we will focus on the very best the country has to offer across a wide range of festival and conference events.”

Last year the event drew massive crowds, all of whom came to see over 2,500 artists and 550 speakers in a record breaking 160 venues across the beautiful city of Amsterdam. It is no surprise, then, that Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE), an initiative of Buma, is the world’s largest club-based festival and conference for electronic music. Visitors from over 90 countries flocked to the liberal city, with music from every conceivable aspect of the electronic spectrum featured.

The organisers are committed to growing the day and nighttime activities once again in 2018 through established partnerships with cultural institutions, and by adding new pavilions focused on countries, as Zijlma points out:

“The addition of pavilions creates extra possibilities to meet and network for music industry professionals but also provides a means to show the innovative power of individual territories in front of an international audience.”

The complete day and night program will be announced over the coming months. For more information about ADE visit the official website.

In Anticipation of Epizode Festival’s Second Season

Guest article by Johnny Nguyen

I seem to be making it a habit of catching idyllic tropical island festivals in their sophomore year.  After attending and loving every minute of the 2017 edition of SXM Festival on the island of Saint Martin, I find myself barreling through the sky at 500 MPH towards a proper close out to the year with Epizode Festival on the island of Phu Quoc, Vietnam.  RIght now, I’m somewhere over the North Pacific between Kazakhstan and Japan, struggling to contain the excitement that understandably precedes a Carl Cox New Year’s Eve countdown set. The setting? A verdant tropical island off the coast of Vietnam.  The best part? We’re just getting started.
