Secret Project Festival

Secret Project is an emerging festival born in the prospering underground scene of downtown Los Angeles. Fusing art, technology, and exceptionally curated house and techno music, the festival known for its daytime moments is ready to grow beyond its origin. With successful editions in LA, Miami, Amsterdam, and Portugal, Secret Project unites music lovers alike in new cities where there are no shortages of dance floors.

Join us for the debut of ADE’s newest daytime festival staple featuring 4 stages of exceptionally curated house and techno.

Hembrugterrein

Taets is part of the inspiring industrial heritage on the Hembrugterrein. This monumental industrial area from 1897 is situated right on the border of Amsterdam, directly on the Noordzeekanaal. It lies at the heart of the UNESCO world heritage site, the ‘Stelling van Amsterdam’, and is the city’s new vibrant breeding ground for creativity, art and culture.

In 2004, Taets was one of the first to be captivated by the magic of this terrain which was still inaccessible at the time. Back then, the terrain was owned by the Ministry of Defence and was strictly prohibited. Taets’ Gallery was the first cultural initiative on the site. At that time the terrain was wild, trees grew through the old dilapidated buildings, and the area was not yet cleared of possible explosives in the ground.

Since then, the Hembrugterrein has become a breeding ground for creative instigators, social entrepreneurs, and cultural institutes. The terrain still kept her wildness and magic.

The Hembrugterrein has a number of restaurants and cafés, various museums, a small podium, artist’s studios, and design shops, and it regularly hosts concerts and festivals.

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.
