For 5 days and nights the city of Amsterdam is all about electronic music. From dawn to dawn, there are LOTS of things you can do at the city, so you better have it prepared! If you have never been in ADE we give you some highlights of the festival so you can move around easier.
Amsterdam Dance Event is the home of electronic music, but it's much more than that. The anual festival gathers professionals, amateurs and lovers of everything related to electronics. It offers events focused on all the different faces of the electronic world, from tech innovation to environment protection in festivals.
During the whole festival there are three big categories: conference, playground and festival.
ADE 2016 had 550 speakers and 7000 delegates invited to all 5 days of conferences. Music industry professionals, artists, producers, entrepreneurs, students and followers of the new technologies joined different activities all over the city.
Besides all the conferences, ADE daylights are full of exhibitions, movie screenings, documentaries, artist's showcases and master classes —and most of them for free! The streets of Amsterdam come to life and are filled with events, and everyone visiting the city those days can enjoy it.
Night comes, and party begins! Over 2200 artists playing on more than 120 emblematic locations bring light to Amsterdam night-time. Last year the festival attracted over 375.000 visitors from around the globe, which makes it the world's biggest club festival.

If you're one of those who just can't decide and you want to go to all the activies and attend to every meeting, you're not alone. On ADE's website you can organize your own agenda for the festival and add to your program all the activities you find interesting.
So far, we have one night of our own program clear: Constant Circles, Sincopat and Comport Records showcase on Friday 20th of October!
We're attending one more year, and we want to meet you! Look for POBLA t-shirt, move around the crowd and come to say hello! We're nice, we promise.
