Introducing the Field Trip Series – ADE

Drumcode ADE

Ever find yourself daydreaming about that epic party abroad that you wish you were going to that weekend? Of course you have. We’re guilty of it more than a few times. 6AM Group is introducing the Field Trip Series, a new feature series each week where we highlight that one party that we really wish we were going to.

To start our series this week, where else would we go but Amsterdam for ADE (Amsterdam Dance Event) The event includes everything from Ableton workshops, music films, the Traktor Cookery, and of course…a series of club nights so stacked that anyone would have difficulty making a decision on what party to attend.

If we were to make a field trip this week, you’d find as at Gashouder for the Drumcode Showcase. The lineup is loaded with Drumcode staples Nicole Moudaber, Joseph Capriati, Alan Fitzpatrick, Dustin Zahn, Sam Paganini, and of course label boss Adam Beyer. We can only imagine what this group of artists will do to Gashouder this Thursday. But it doesn’t end there, ADE is a complete musical takeover of the city for the entire week.

The folks over at ADE have put up an interactive map on their website where users can see exactly where the wide variety of parties and activities are throughout the week. Essentially, a user friendly guide while roaming through paradise. My eyes light up when I see the program that they’ve put together, and if I were to make the field trip to ADE there’s no way I’d miss the demonstration of the 4-D Soundsystem at the Compagnietheater.

As I sit here day dreaming about what could be the best field trip ever, I find peace in the fact that I will at least be able to watch the live streams. Luckily for all of us, Be-at TV is on point and has an excellent selection of events streaming on their website. But seriously…what would we do without those guys?! Until the live steaming stars, maybe we can live vicariously through Alan Fitzpatrick’s mix from last years Drumcode event.
