Amsterdam sees thousands of music enthusiasts flock to its streets for back-to-back events hosted during the annual ADE (Amsterdam Dance Event). Saturday 21 through to Sunday 22 morning saw one of Tale of Us‘ biggest events yet. Selling out the previous year in Gashouder, they stepped it up and took over Ziggo Dome boasting almost 5 times greater capacity. This was Afterlife arriving on the global stage.
Many have witnessed the incredible Italian duo that is Carmine & Matteo who form the legendary Tale of Us we know and love today. Founders of the Afterlife record label and legends to the techno world, they push new-aged techno through ID tracks and samples of their own and mixes that captivate with a euphoric atmosphere known. After witnessing their new releases at Tomorrowland back in July and their incredible residency held throughout Ibiza 2022 season, they lived up to every expectation one could possibly dream during ADE.
Awakenings swallowed ADE whole whilst the Afterlife DJs made sure to deliver, It was just right that Tale of Us finished the night off, putting everyone into pure ecstasy wanting more. This 5-day event of 24-hour nonstop music stood no chance against the attention these two were coming to steal, leaving over 15,000 fans satisfied musically, visually, and emotionally!
It has been incredible so far to watch how far they have come and how much influence they have had within the industry, providing us with sets to be repeated, songs dying to be ID’d, new unreleased tracks inviting everyone to record, and showing mindblowing remixes of classic tracks. As every set comes and goes, there’s a consistent passion driven to increasing the benchmark set within their industry. This event will go down marked as their largest indoor venue yet! Whilst future projects see them coming for more, as cities snap up their opportunity to host these two legends. So much so, they are pushing boundaries as they sell out in minutes, therefore, having to extend their sacrifice and deliver to their all-loving all-raving international fan base. This one will go down in their and ADE’s milestones forever.
