In short about ADE (Amsterdam Dance Event): it is the week in which the music business comes together to network, follow workshops and party. The well-known yellow cube can be found in more than 200 locations: with major Hardstyle labels and unique lectures from the legends of the scene. “Whether you’re looking for the best festival events for the first time or a seasoned delegate who gets the most trip, there’s always more to find in the city during ADE.”

According to the club, this venue even has one of the best sound systems in the country: a good reason for Coone, Sub Zero Project, Rebelion and many others to give it a good test on this first ADE day.
