Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE) is showcasing some of the scene’s top artists and labels during its upcoming edition in October.


Since its inception, Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE) has grown to become one of the most influential weeks for electronic music on the planet. Over the course of the five-day event, there are hundreds of speakers who discuss different aspects of the industry and artists performing at a plethora of venues throughout the city. This year will see ADE return on October 19-23, and true to form they’re boasting another round of fantastic names who will be showing their best work during its run.

Last month, ADE announced the first artist residencies and experiences that will be featured for this year’s ADE Arts & Culture. This includes Tamara Shogaolu’s transformation of the Westerkerk church into the serene rainforest of Panama and Nick Verstand’s Within Without II at Carré Theater on ADE’s opening night, among others.

Major artists in the scene such as Afrojack, Alan Fitzpatrick, Alan Walker, Oliver Heldens, CloZee, Maceo Plex, Markus Schulz, Sasha, Pan-Pot, and more are set to perform at various venues around Amsterdam. Further, renowned brands like Circoloco, Anjunadeep, Hospitality, and Monstercat will be hosting showcases while AMF will also return as well.

Some of the early standouts include DGTL, which will take over the NDSM Warehouse for three nights and feature performances from the likes of Paula Temple, Worakls, Seth Troxler, Kobosil, Jayda G, Floating Points, Ben Böhmer, and Sherelle. Audio Obscura will also be joining in on the fun at Raw Factory with a hefty offering of fantastic artists ranging from Ellen Allien and Mano Le Tough to Adriatique and Âme.
