Heavy rains and just about every corner of the techno world poured into Amsterdam this past weekend for the world's biggest event in club music, Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE) . Revered by global electronic music aficionados, the five-day event arranges cutting-edge programming via ADE Conference, ADE Playground, and the festival itself. Geared heavily towards techno lovers, ADE 2017 attracted a staggering 395,000 producers, artists, gearheads, industry folks, composers and dedicated hedonists to the Dutch capital.
ADE holds court as the world's most cutting-edge scene for electronic music. The event's trademark black and yellow logo beckoned industry folks and fans alike to p anels on the future of dance music at the DelMar Theater, product demos and workshops cranking at the ADE Sound Lab and to experimental media projects looping at ADE Playground. Mind-melting techno and house music thundered from repurposed churches (Paradiso), abandoned gas silos (Gashouder; venue host to Awakenings Festival ), underground clubs, street corners – even the Irish pubs downtown joined in.
ADE 2018 will be here before we know it, but for now these snaps from the week will hold you over.
See you next year!
