Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE) 2016

“Where every aspect of global dance music culture comes together”

The Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE), the world’s largest club-based festival and conference for electronic music, will take place this year from the 19th to 23rd of October. The organisers are expecting around 375,000 national and international visitors for the 21st edition.

Dance Culture
Over the last 20 years ADE, an initiative of Buma, has become the leading platform for the international dance scene. It is the place ‘par excellence’ to identify the latest business practices and the freshest musical trends, ranging from emerging talents through to the most recent work of electronic music’s pioneers and superstars.

The event continues to grow and develop each year, with last year’s anniversary edition featuring 2289 artists performing in 100 venues and more than 500 speakers taking part in the nine different conference streams. The extensive film, art, and audiovisual program has also been expanding each year, and the organisers are committed to growing the day and nighttime activities once again in 2016.

“ADE has developed into a platform where every aspect of the global phenomenon that is dance music culture comes together. It is fantastic to see that Amsterdam has become a global destination for both music lovers and the music industry,” says ADE Director Richard Zijlma.

The Amsterdam Dance Event takes place from the 19th to 23rd of October, 2016.
