Dave Clarke Presents

Grit your teeth as the nineteenth ADE-edition of Dave Clarke Presents is upon us. For years, he has been curating the sharpest line-ups in both rooms at Melkweg. This year he brings the prolific Len Faki to the festival's longest-running techno night, one of the most passionate and versatile techno DJs in the business and known for his stripped-down funkiness and raw sound. On top we see the return of Paula Temple for another whip of her relentless beats and detroit live-legends Octave One with their soulful groove. Add a dose of gritty electro and wave spearheaded by the iconic KITTIN and live perfomances by Ash Code and Curses. A brutalist club night with punk attitude that combines the best of the past and the future.
