Besides the festival itself, ADE will also feature conferences and what they call “Playground”: 25 hotspots around the city, which offer film screenings, exhibitions, musical performances and other happenings. During the festival’s five days, there will be approximately 300 events and over 1,500 DJs in eighty venues around Amsterdam.
Amsterdam Dance Event started in 1995, and the festival attracts about 300,000 visitors per year. According to ADE General Manager/Director Richard Zijlma, it has sold out every year since 2008 (The Hollywood Reporter writes). ADE is also expanding outside of Amsterdam; since last year, an annual sister event is being held in Aruba.
Even if you can’t attend to the event in person, we’ve got you covered: The filming crew of Stand Above The Noise will be there to bring you insightful and interesting video interviews.
