ESSENTIAL ADE EVENTS

The parties not to miss at ADE 2014

Canals and weed is all you need. Throw in a jammed schedule of the sickest parties — excellently programmed and expertly produced — and you've got probably the most appealing short city break imaginable.

Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE) is not only a holiday, however.A chance for the industry's most influential to cross paths, chat business and share ideas, during the day (15th - 19th October) focus is on the many panels, workshops and networking events. At night (and all day long in some cases), the flurry of ex-factories, clubs and creative industrial spaces dotted about the city come alive.

From raves in shipyard docks to full-blown festivals and grimy warehouse parties, they're all here, curated by our favourite labels and housed within some of the world's most mind-blowing clubs. ADEs are good!
