Amsterdam Dance Event announces 2018 dates

The Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE), the world’s leading event for electronic music, will take place from the 17th to 21st of October, 2018. The organisers are expecting around 400,000 national and international visitors for the 23rd edition.

“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.” – Director Richard Zijlma

The Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE), an initiative of Buma, is the world’s largest club-based festival and conference for electronic music. The event continues to grow and develop each year, with last year’s edition featuring over 2,500 artists and 550 speakers in a record-breaking 160 venues. The event attracted visitors from over 90 countries over five days featuring every conceivable aspect of electronic music culture.

The organisers are committed to growing the day and nighttime activities once again in 2018 through established partnerships with cultural institutions, and by adding new pavilions focused on countries.

“The addition of pavilions creates extra possibilities to meet and network for music industry professionals but also provides a means to show the innovative power of individual territories in front of an international audience.” – Director Richard Zijlma

The complete day and night program will be announced over the coming months. For more information about ADE click here.
