House Of China
China has grown into ADE in recent years. In 2016 ADE made it a focus country. From that year onwards Chinese companies found their way to Amsterdam. In 2018, House of China burst on the scene. In this one-day program not only Mai Ai but also BHM, known from bringing Creamfields to China and CMCM, known from the ISY Festival in Sanya, presented themselves. With Fever NetEase and VAC, House of China has now had a stronghold of five official presenting partners.
On Thursday October 17th the venue will be transformed into the place where key and new players of the French electronic scene gather, to detail and celebrate the renaissance of one of Europe’s house, techno and IDM powerhouses. The French Electronic Lab is part of ADE’s 2019 celebration of France and the French scene, which is part of this year’s extensive Country Focus conference program in both De Balie and the DeLaMar Theater.
