When Essam Jansen and Alex Hes first teamed up to put on a party, they did it out of sheer frustration because they didn't see the kind of nights they wanted. Yet, since then they've created an International Corporation with E&A Events, from the Don't Let Daddy Know sessions they started in Privilege, Ibiza, to festivals that take place in the Netherlands, UK and right across South and East Asia. Next to that, they work hand in hand with names like Martin Garrix and Don Diablo to build events in all of electronic music.
To have them at ADE University , in the midst of E & A's busy ADE schedule that includes among others DLDK, TIKTAK, and two Martin Garrix events, is a great opportunity for the students to learn from their experience - which, of course, covers just about every level and sector of the industry. Better still, they've chosen to bring Karan Badkar from Envision India to join them for their reading. Karan's presence will help give some insights into the fastest-growing areas in the world of dance festivals and help explain how Essam and Alex have built their contacts and infrastructure in India and across Asia.
