Following the news that one of the world’s largest electronic music conferences and festivals, ADE [Amsterdam Dance Event], is going ahead this year, promoters DGTL have announced their (epic) lineup for the hotly anticipated gathering.
With ADE taking over the Dutch capital from October 13th to 17th 2021, DGTL has thrilled music lovers by announcing headline sets from the likes of Disclosure, The Blessed Madonna, Kölsch, Sven Väth, Dixon, Paula Temple, Honey Dijon, Jon Hopkins, Dax J, and many more. Who’s ready?!
One of several big players who will be contributing to ADE’s whirlwind of DJ sets and parties, DGTL will host four events over the course of three days on October 14th, 15th and 16th. For the first time in their ADE history, they have also added a daytime event to the DGTL roster.
DGTL said, “More than a year without dancing called for a special celebration, so we went all-in with this year’s program.”
It’s befitting the general excitement that surrounds this year’s ADE, as the renowned industry event returns to the NDSM Docklands for its 25th anniversary after going online in 2020.
Around 20,000 fans are expected to gather, party and witness the sun rise together as they celebrate their long-awaited return to the dancefloor in the heart of Amsterdam!
