Amsterdam Dance Event gears up for 21st edition...

This 19th-23rd October the dance music world will once again descend upon the Netherlands for the 21st annual Amsterdam Dance Event.

Offering both a festival jam-packed with globally renowned acts and a conference for learning and networking, ADE is without a doubt the largest celebration of club culture in the world.

Festival acts announced for 2016 already include the likes of Dixon, Maya Jane Coles, Seth Troxler, Richie Hawtin, Martin Garrix, Matthias Tanzmann, Axwell Λ Ingrosso, Adam Beyer and Tale Of Us, along with a special opening show from Scripted Orkestra – a collaborative project between renowned composer Henrik Schwarz and the world's foremost non-classical orchestra Metropole Orkest – and a host of other top names.

Meanwhile, this year's conference will feature keynote speakers such as Kickstarter’s head of music Molly Neuman, Def Jam CEO Steve Bartel and Mute founder Daniel Miller, plus a host of unmissable workshops, panels and tech displays.
