Scalping

Line-up

Scalping (GB)

Scalping

Based in Bristol, UK, noise band SCALPING bring a mix of techno with live drums and metal-worthy distorted guitars. For the last five years, SCALPING have been writing, recording, and performing music together, trying to answer the question that guides their work: “How can a band bridge the gap between live guitar music and live electronic music?”

On the debut album ‘Void’, released by Houndstooth - fabric’s in-house record label, SCALPING are heavy metal in 4D; the sound is moody, distorted, and rhythmic, but the use of electronic techniques gives the finer details room to breathe. Their early lust for “all loudness, no nuance” has cooled too, making more space for experimentation. Tracks such as ‘Tether’, featuring Oakland rapper DÆMON, puts a modern, metal twist on Bristolian trip-hop; whereas album closer, ‘Remain In Statsis’, which features fast-rising artist Grove - a Bristol rapper and self-professed metalhead - whose commanding presence sets the track alight. These songs also mark an additional new chapter for the band with the addition of vocals for the first time.

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 expect an open attitude from our visitors towards other guests, regardless of their origin, gender, sexual orientation, religion and age.
