Taking place from October 18th to 22nd, 2017.
Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE) has announced they are moving to a different venue after 16 years. The Nieuwe DeLaMar Theater has been selected as new centre allowing space for major renovations in the old one, the Felix Meritis.
The Hello DeLaMar Theater is situated next to the Leidseplein and De Melkweg and will allow the event to bring previously separately-housed events such as ADE Dance & Brands under one roof.
“Having been sold out for the last seven years, plus with more delegates coming from an ever greater number of countries, especially Korea, China, Africa, India and South America, the renovation of the Felix Meritis offers us an opportunity to try a different venue,” ADE Director Richard Zijlma, said. “We are excited and optimistic about the new conferencing and networking possibilities that the Nieuwe DeLaMar Theater offers, and we’re confident that delegates will find it a spectacular and inspiring space.”
Also, a new ticketing system has been introduced allowing delegates to choose between day and night time activities with a 5-day Daytime-only pass now available. The classic 5 Days/Nights passes are also still on offer.
Finally, the panel program has chosen Morocco to be under the spotlight in this year’s ‘ADE Global View’. The North African country currently hosts 15 festivals that are almost exclusively dedicated to electronic music, plus a range of large events featuring world music. This forward-looking and liberal-minded country also has a healthy club scene with venues specialising in house music, hip hop and techno thriving throughout the territory.
