The 25th-anniversary edition of ADE will take place this year. Both the conference and festival are set to go down in physical form. The festivities will begin on October 13th in the country where EDM stars were born.
The vaccination campaign in the Netherlands is moving at a fast pace. As a matter of fact, it started on January 6th, 2021, and the government already administrated more than 2.2 million doses. ADE will ensure that the 25th edition respects all health guidelines.
As a result, the company seems ready to offer a lineup with a variety of organizers announcing their first shows. Among those, Audio Obscura, Awakenings, DGTL, Dockyard, Elrow, Into the Woods, Loveland, and Verknipt will be part of the celebration. People will also be able to explore venues like Concertgebouw, Panama, Melkweg, and Paradiso. The latter two announced part of their program in the process. It includes artists like Dave Clarke and Oliver Heldens for Melkweg and Avalon Emerson and Speedy J presents STOOR live for Paradiso.
Moreover, the online community of music professionals will benefit from the conference program at Amsterdam’s iconic Felix Meritis. The ADE foundation will also extend its support to the live music industry. The 25th edition will give the opportunity to music professionals to become an active part of the road to ADE 2021. The events will take place on its online B2B platform, completely free of charge. Roughly, ADE invites members of the global electronic music community to talk about how the post-Covid structure of the music business will look like as the live industry rebuilds and reopens globally.
Anyone interested can sign up for the first sessions and join the discussion with key industry players and experts, starting in April 2021.
