16-20/10/19 - Amsterdam Dance Event

The Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE), the world’s leading event for electronic music, will take place the 16th to 20th October, 2019. The organisers are expecting around 400,000 national and international visitors for the 24th edition.

Alongside the multiple conference tracks addressing the latest business, cultural and technological trends, and festival programming that showcases the diversity of electronic music and its many sub-genres, the organisers are committed to once again enhancing the daytime activities in 2019 through partnerships with cultural institutions and multi-disciplinary collaborations that engage with the broadest possible range of the creative industries.

Director Mariana Sanchotene states: “During ADE, Amsterdam will once again be the centre of the global electronic music industry and the home base for music enthusiasts. Our conference and festival activities showcase what is happening around the world, but should also be a reflection of how creative, innovative, vibrant and inclusive our hometown is.”

The Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE), an initiative of Buma, has grown into the world’s largest club-based festival and conference for electronic music. The event continues to grow and develop each year, with last year’s edition featuring over 2,500 artists and 550 speakers in almost 200 venues. The five-day event attracts visitors from over 100 countries and features every conceivable aspect of electronic music culture, with dedicated conference programming and an extensive art, film, gear, live music and pop-up program spread across the city of Amsterdam.

“There are numerous topics to address, from local matters such as the rapidly changing landscape for festivals in the Netherlands and Europe, through to inclusivity and tolerance in the music industry on a global scale. We look forward to again welcoming creative minds from all over the world to connect, create, do business or just to be inspired,” added Sanchotene.

The complete conference and festival program will be announced over the coming months. For more information about ADE: https://www.amsterdam-dance-event.nl/about-ade/
