With just three weeks to go, the preparations are in full swing for the nineteenth edition of the Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE), the world's biggest club festival and leading conference for electronic music. Today the organization has finalized the already impressive festival line-up with the addition of new names. The five-day ADE Festival, which takes place from 15 to 19 October, will showcase a record number of 2,224 national and international artists from 57 countries. More than 400 journalists, 5,000 conference delegates and an expected 350,000 festival visitors are set to travel from all over the world to the city of Amsterdam, as the ADE, an initiative of Buma, puts the international spotlight on Amsterdam for five full days.
Unique locations across every part of the city
The ADE Festival offers a hugely varied program, taking place across 85 of the city's most diverse locations. From traditional clubs and music venues like Melkweg, Studio 80, Paradiso, Trouw and Escape, to post-industrial sheds in the NDSM shipyard and the Westergasterrein, as well as rather more unusual venues like the Concertgebouw, the Compagnietheater and the Amsterdam Arena, alongside newly incorporated venues like the Volkshotel and the Tolhuistuin, the ADE Festival is truly the biggest club festival in world.
