House of Hope - The street shows the way
House of Hope is an immersive club concept in a church. People who have experienced homelessness first-hand will share their real-life stories, accompanied by DJ and producer Mees Dierdorp setting the mood with his compelling and distinctive sound. Protestant Church Netherlands (PKN), Homebass, Dominicus Amsterdam and Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE), are joining forces to present to you: House of Hope.

The number of people who don’t have a home or homeland is growing. What does feeling at home mean to you? House of Hope is a spot for you to connect, to feel, to learn and above all: to dance. Let the street show you the way and discover what makes you feel like home.

OUR STORYTELLERS
Dominicus Church Pastor Arjan Broers will introduce our storytellers: Chicha “The Drummer”, Grace Workala, Jacques Vedel Du Boisbaudry and Sonja Groot Obbink. These remarkable and inspiring people have experienced both the brutality of life on the street and the freedom of letting go of material possessions, schedules and status.

THE CLUB IN A CHURCH

The artistic gathering will be held at the neo-gothic Dominicus Church in the heart of Amsterdam. Clubs and churches have more in common than you might think. Both scenes feel like a true ‘home’ for people, places where people find meaning, connection and warmth. The church as spiritual dance floor.

FOR WHO?

House of Hope is for music fans, nightcrawles, DJs and anyone seeking connection and more meaning in life, regardless of faith, origin, age or orientation. The event joins the movement #WijMakenPlek by also welcoming undocumented migrants, homeless people and others who often don’t have access to concerts or the dance floor.

While the spoken word will be in Dutch, the music will convey the message in a language that is universal and transcends words. We’ll look after both the soul and the body by serving free pancakes for everyone so you can keep on dancing.

Dominicus Kerk

The Church of Saint Dominic is an ecumenical community, originating from a Roman Catholic tradition.

Since 1964, after the second Vatican Council, fundamental changes have taken place. Over the years a new kind of liturgy has been developed, which derives its inspiration from the texts of contemporary writers and theologians like Huub Oosterhuis, Juut Meijer, Sieds Prins, Pieter van Hooff, Mirjam Wolthuis, Erik Borgman and Gerard Swüste and the music of Bernard Huijbers, Thom Jansen, Tom Löwenthal, Mariëtte Harinck, Paul Valk and Antoine Oomen.

In our services much attention is given to the preaching. The team of pastors responsible for the services seek to deepen and to clarify the fundamental issues of man and society, starting from the jewish-christian tradition. In the composition of the liturgy an attempt is made to stress the community-orientated character of our services.

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.
