Dutch festival and event promoter DGTL just released its impressive ADE program for 2016. In the span of three consecutive nights during Amsterdam Dance Event, DGTL sets out to offer the international dance community something special in the form of co-hostings by leading partners Mosaic By Maceo (20/10), house institution Paradise (21/10) and of course Kompakt (22/10). Here, visitors can expect only the finest selection of artists from the various hosting parties, resulting in over 30 artists playing DGTL’s trusted indoor home base: the Scheepsbouwloods on the NDSM-Docklands.
Ticket sales for all three DGTL ADE events have started today. DGTL kindly informs visitors to not wait too long with purchasing their entry to the various nights, as DGTL x Paradise and DGTL x Kompakt were sold out before October had even started. DGTL ADE will be held at the concrete jungle of the Scheepsbouwloods, located across the IJ river on the NDSM Docklands.
The event trilogy closes with none other than DGTL x Kompakt. For years now the Cologne-based techno imprint has found its ADE home in the Scheepsbouwloods. For over two decades and counting, Kompakt has brought fans of underground electronica a premium offering of new and progressive sounds and has been a pool of creativity for budding artists, some of whom are now the world’s leading artists.
For their joined night, DGTL and Kompakt are excited to announce that the legendary Laurent Garnier will act out the role of headliner this year. Another favourite among the Dutch crowd this year is Kölsch. The acclaimed Danish storytelling producer became a cornerstone of the Kompakt family through critically and commercially acknowledged albums 1977 and 1983.
Just as indispensable at a Kompakt soiree is, of course, a live performance from Âme, with Frank Wiedemann pulling the strings behind his setup. Kompakt co-founder and 80’s music aficionado Michael Mayer is playing a b2b set this time around with none other than the seasoned French electronic music influential Agoria. Next up is Trouw veteran and studio addict Patrice Baumel, after which the skyrocketing duo Frankey & Sandrino are up. Last but not least is Sonns, a French-born, LA-based producer with some excellent works under his belt and a more than welcome opening act for a lineup that can’t be missed.
