This year, the cream of the electronic music crop will head to Amsterdam once again for a weekend of music, talks and events. Amsterdam Dance Event has confirmed that it will be back for its 23rd edition next October, and the festival expects to welcome 400,000 visitors from around the world.
2017’s ADE featured a record-breaking 2,500 artists and 550 speakers across 160 venues. Highlights included MN2S Presents: Roger Sanchez, Todd Terry and A Guy Called Gerald—our 22nd party at the festival. Hosted once again in the wonderful Sugarfactory venue, the party was a night to remember for all involved.

Though nothing other than the dates are so far confirmed, ADE 2018’s director has already announced that elements of the festival will have a strong focus on South Korea this year to celebrate the nation’s thriving electronic music scene. Other new additions include brand new pavilions which are set to focus on individual countries, with the intention of providing opportunities for networking amongst conference-goers, and to show off the musical talent each region has to offer.
