ADE Country Focus Canada

Our Country Focus this year puts Canada in the spotlight. The country of origin of artists and DJs such as A-Trak, DeadMau5, John Acquaviva, Richie Hawtin, Tiga, Nick Holder, Kid Koala, Loud Luxury and many more is a sparsely populated place that breeds a fiercely independent spirit in its inhabitants. And that spirit often translates into a highly original artistic temperament. It is also a territory with a thriving club scene that undeniably also has a healthy live circuit, alongside a range of labels, publishers, distributors and promoters who are important players in the global electronic village. Come and get a brief rundown of who does what and with who, as well as the chance to network with Canada's key players in a casual setting.
