Amsterdam Dance Event is where electronic music's mainstream and the underground collide, a Mecca for fans and innovators alike – all in one of the most historic cities in the world.
Celebrating its 20th year, ADE began in 1996 during electronic music's booming early days as a conference attended by 300 delegates and involving 30 DJs over three days. Today, the event boasts over 2,000 DJs playing 115 venues, 350,000 total visitors, and 5,000 conference attendees. ADE is composed of three parts: the Festival, the Conference and the Playground, which means attendees get to learn, experience, and grow in the dance music world.
