GDE We All Dance Together

GDE continues its global and international impact at the world's biggest electronic music festival as they present another year of showcases and artists in support of the LGBTQ+ community with a clear message in opposition to racism, gender discrimination and homophobia.

We will be closing Amsterdam Dance Event 2022 with some of the best artists in town. With diversity and inclusivity we will be showing our love and support to LGBTQ+. Gay men and women have always been in the forefront of dance music. From the early days of 70's disco to the 90s Love Generation of house and techno, the LGBTQ+ community has lead the way. It was not once uncommon that gay clubs of the 70s, 80s and 90s were frequently visited by those yearning to hear new music - music or talents that would not break out to the mainstream world for months or years later to become hits on the Billboard charts worldwide. Our GDE line up arises from the inclusive worldwide dance music scenes where all genders and sexualities are welcome.

Blend XL

Blend XL, a spacious bar (275m2) with tables and especially during the ADE we create a big dance floor, located on the Reguliersdwarsstraat 44, one street back from the famous Flower Market. It’s been a while since Amsterdam had such a large new open minded place with so much allure, street arts graffities on its walls. Blend XL will be open to all genders, in harmony and respect for all sexualities. A place to be seen and where you can be who you want to be. Glittery yet sober, groovy yet glamorous, a touch gay oriented but though enough to appeal to almost everybody who can appreciate some good old sophistication, fashion and party time. In a cozy atmosphere you will enjoy your cocktails and drinks. You will dance and groove in a stunning venue until very late night with a funky mix of music that will make your 5 ADE days a unique experience.

Festival FAQ

Yes, all official ADE Festival events listed on the ADE website are accessible with your ADE Pro Pass (limited capacity at venues). When capacity has been reached, a one in one out rule applies.

A very limited number of events, including the Nils Frahm seated concert at Concertgebouw and the Eric Prydz HOLO show have had an RSVP list for Pro Pass holders. Only the RSVP grants entry to the shows.

For (individual) festival tickets make sure to check out our program and simply add tickets to your basket as you explore all events.

Tip: Filter the program by "Show only events with available tickets" to get a quick view.

Most festival events have an age limit of 18+ (and sometimes even 21+ or 23+), these are Dutch governmental rules which say that below the age of 18 you are not allowed to enter a club. Please double-check the promotors website to be sure you can enter the event.

We dance together, so please be mindful of yourself and each other. We expect an open attitude from our visitors towards other guests, regardless of their origin, gender, sexual orientation, religion and age. If you see or experience any unwanted attention, harassment or behavior of any kind that makes you uncomfortable, please speak out and notify staff.

Please keep in mind: we love being your annual host, therefore, we would like to ask you to enjoy responsibly.
