From today on, Amsterdam is the centre of dance- music and the dance- scene. I don’t do dance. I dislike electronic music. I hate huge crowds and too full clubs. In fact I don’t even like clubs at all. I can’t dance on this kind of music without drugs and I don’t do drugs. Shortly; The Amsterdam Dance Event is not “my thing”. (This is; for example. Or check out my favourite blog HERE where the maker united all my favourite music- his October 17 post makes me REALLY happy!)
The Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE) is the leading electronic music conference and the world’s biggest club festival for electronic music. The event offers a unique blend of daytime conferences, including interactive workshops, technical demonstrations and in-depth round-table discussions, alongside a nighttime music festival which takes place in 52 venues around the city. The annual event attracts 3,000 business professionals and 130,000 festival visitors from all around the globe.
With a daytime program based around the Felix Meritis centre and the Dylan Hotel (both on the renown Keizersgracht) and De Balie in the heart of Amsterdam’s city centre, the ADE has gained a reputation amongst music industry professionals for being an event where things get done. Thanks to the abundant presence of artists, DJs, managers, the media, labels, publishers and producers from 58 countries, the volume of deals done and valuable connections made is one of the most remarkable aspects of the ADE’s daytime activities.
But you know what? For my favourite German friends (Girls I miss you & wish you could “do” this dance thing instead of me!) and simply ’cause I can, I’m gonna give it a go this year! Soon you’ll be able to read my Amsterdam Dance Event Experience (s) here…. wish me luck, woohoo!
