ADE 2024 sees DGTL return to its renowned home at the iconic NDSM Warehouse

DGTL opens its ADE weekend with Caribou, performing their first Dutch live show in two years. The infectious energy and unique blend of alternative electronica, indie rock and a touch of jazz have made the live band around Dan Snaith high-profile. The Canadian proved earlier this year that Caribou also carries a raw sting, dropping the unadulterated club track “Honey” to widespread critical acclaim. That edge alone promises to make Caribou’s DGTL ADE show an unforgettable experience. Caribou will be followed by an evening of melodic techno, with performances by Colyn, Jan Blomqvist (+drums), Mathame, Fideles, Nicky Elisabeth and Miss Monique, among others.

On Friday, Nils Frahm will provide a magical evening, transforming the NDSM Warehouse into his own Berlin Funkhaus studio for 2.5 hours. Expect a unique, immersive show in which he blurs the boundaries between classical music and modern electronic sounds with virtuoso performances on piano and synthesizers. A unique, enchanting experience that will appeal to fans of electronic music and lovers of classical music alike.

Saturday now traditionally revolves around The Blessed Madonna’s extravagant We Still Believe. In addition to The Blessed Madonna herself, Marie Davidson will perform live as will Kenny Dope, revered globally as one-half of the legendary house duo Masters at Work. Festival goers can expect sets from a stacked line-up of major talent, including from Avalon Emerson, Bashkka, and eccentric Berlin artist Patrick Mason, who recently showed off his energetic techno to a frenzied crowd on the Generator Stage at DGTL Festival.

After the colourful daytime program, the night turns pitch black, with a harder program that seeks the ragged edges of industrial, hardstyle and raw techno. Brutalismus 3000 presents a mammoth takeover under the banner “Brutalismus 3000 Invites”, including Boys Noize, Rebekah, Salome, Lúcia Lu, DJ Hyperdrive, Raven and, of course, the celebrated duo itself. 

Last Sunday’s edition of DGTL ADE proved to be a golden one. For many, Gou Talk by Peggy Gou is the perfect way to end ADE in spectacular fashion. No surprise then that Gou Talk returns for a second time, with 2024’s edition featuring Peggy Gou, Bambounou, Marie Montexier, Anz, Salamanda, Spray and Brain de Palma, among others.
