You'll be guided into the world and behind-the-scenes of the most well-known artists and their teams, so be sure to take some notes.

Calling upon all aspiring producers and creators! In addition to showing and discussing your demos with electronic music professionals, ADE Lab offers a special selection of opportunities where you and other likeminded music makers are able to start creating tomorrow's top hits. If you're lucky you'll even get the chance to hop into the studio with your favourite artist, so get out of your home studio and join the breeding ground of future masterpieces.
