The first major topics of ADE Pro

Thursday, 22 June 2023
On top of the new ADE Pro Pass benefits recently announced, the ADE Pro conference is set to be more centered around on the most urgent needs and desires of music professionals than any edition before. The first big topics for this year's conference are now confirmed, tackling the strategies, opportunities and responsibilities that define the global electronic music scene.

How do festivals survive in the current landscape filled with uncertainties and challenges ahead, and what does the future of live events look like? How can professionals master the recent explosion in machine learning and (how) will AI dominate our industry in the years to come? How can events turn their ambitions about climate-neutral and circular efforts a reality whilst grappling with heightened expenses on all fronts?


We have divided ADE Pro's industry keynotes, in-depth sessions, gatherings and other sessions into four primary focus tracks, to help navigate you through the hundreds of conference events yet to be announced in the coming months. Dive in to discover the first big topics and themes of the ADE Pro Conference and get a sneak peak of what to expect.

Strategies

For those who like to think long-term and stay ahead of the game: the Strategies track focuses on urgent matters, what the near future holds for the live event industry, and how to best evolve your music career. The first topics include a critical look at the future of festivals and live shows: how do organisers survive and thrive in a world where inflation is inevitable, and saturation seems to pose a challenge to set yourself apart from the competition?

Moreover, ADE Pro explore the world of possibilities of getting your music on major and most well-known video streaming services. Also be sure to the return of Buma Music in Motion on Wednesday, October 18, where the best use of music in all forms of media is the centre of attention.

Opportunities

‎‎
Changes in the industry ask for creativity and innovation. During ADE Pro experts and industry leaders take a look at the far future and find out where the most impactful opportunities and new developments lie for professionals. How can we cater machine learning to every aspect of electronic music? Will AI will replace jobs in the industry or can we use it as an asset, and if so, how? The months leading up to October are sure to already bring massive changes to the way artificial intelligence is used and perceived, and during ADE Pro professionals can expect a real glimpse into future.

Moreover, we're exploring the depths of deep immersion and how it operates at the intersection of music, science, and art, and explore matters known to only a few, for now. We'll be joined by a number of artists and experts in the field of immersive audiovisual experience and next-level stage design to discuss the next phase of how music and art can intertwine.

Responsibilities


Working in the music and events scene means having a responsibility to the people joining our events, listening to our music, and those working with us. To help leave the world a better place than it is, the panels and talks cover growing equality and fairness in our ecosystem, and how to create purpose in music. With well-known challenges and pressing matters ahead of us, now is the time to look at how we can improve our ecosystem together.

In addition, thought leaders in the field of sustainability explore how events can turn their ambitions about climate-neutral and circular efforts a reality whilst grappling with heightened expenses on all fronts. Don't miss the ADE Green conference on Friday, October 20 as part of the overall ADE Pro conference at Felix Meritis to get up to speed with the latest innovations in environmental and social change in the industry.
