ADE Festival consists of all the music events (over 1000 yearly) organized by more than 200 clubs and cultural institutions. This means the Amsterdam Dance Event Foundation does not organise the individual events itself but rather invites external events to join the yearly festival. Every year ADE is hosted by very established as well as unknown and surprising locations, covering not only every part of the city, but a great variety of electronical music as well. The festival also includes our disciplinary crossovers curated by our Arts & Culture program.

Most festival events have an age limit of 18+ (and sometimes even 21+ or 23+). These are Dutch governmental rules which state that below the age of 18 you are not allowed to enter a club.

Please double-check the promotors or venues website to be sure you can enter the event!

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

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.
