ADE Celebrates 20th Anniversary in 2015


The Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE) will celebrate its 20th anniversary this year [2015]. Since its humble beginnings in 1996, the ADE has grown to become the world’s leading event for electronic music and the biggest club festival in the world.

The extensive multi-genre line-up is like an A-Z of electronic music you’ll be hard pushed to find anywhere else, from the biggest stars of the scene to the up and coming artists we’ll all be listening to in the years to come.

The Amsterdam Dance Event will take place from October 14th to 18th in 2015.

It’s the ultimate festival experience for electronic music fans and the essential yearly pilgrimage for the artists and people behind the scenes making it all happen.
