ADE announces in-person event for 2021

The last ADE took place in 2019

Amsterdam Dance Event has announced plans to host an event in October this year.

Following a pause last year in over two decades of annual events due to coronavirus, ADE has announced that the 25th edition of the event will take place in Amsterdam from the 13th to the 17th October 2021.

Leading on from last year's ADE online immersive virtual experience, the event will return to the Dutch capital in October, with venues and promoters in the form of Audio Obscura, DGTL, Elrow, Into the Woods and Paradiso taking over the city for four days.

Some of the acts performing at this year's parties have already been announced, with Avalon Emerson, Dave Clarke and Speedy J all confirmed for comeback edition of the event.

During this year's event, there will also be a range of activities focused on South Korea. Director Richard Zijlma states: “The South Korean electronic music scene is growing rapidly, thanks to technological innovation and smart crossovers. During ADE we will focus on the very best the country has to offer across a wide range of festival and conference events.”

Back in February, the Dutch Government said that festivals should be possible in the Netherlands from July.
