The Amsterdam Dance Event never fails to bring in the crowds with world-famous established names on the line-up alongside an enormous list of rising stars. The playlist is always suitably diverse, featuring electro, acid, techno, trance, house, hip-hop, drum 'n' bass and other beat-filled sounds to make you move. With a huge number of events and parties taking place, this annual festival sees more than 2,500 artists descend on 200 locations across the city to provide 5 days of guaranteed partying for in the region of 400,000 clubbers.

Big acts, big stages

Every year the biggest names in dance music headline the Amsterdam Dance Event. While the line up has not been completely confirmed, by the time it gets to mid-October, every space in the city is filled with music talents, from AFAS Live, Paradiso and Melkweg, to the clubs on Rembrandtplein and Leidsplein and all the smaller venues in between.

ADE conference

Not just a festival, each year, the Amsterdam Dance Event presents the ADE conference, with various streams and sessions covering every aspect of the music industry. The conference provides a platform for critical dialogue and debate while allowing delegates the chance to network, exchange expertise and keep on top of all the latest developments in the electronic music field.

ADE By Day

Another popular element of the festival is ADE By Day: a daytime programme that transforms Amsterdam into the largest pop-up shop on the planet with a host of studio sessions, hardware workshops, art, movie screenings and exhibitions, topped off with in-store and outdoor performances by record labels, DJs and artists.
