ADE '17
  • The rough guide to ADE 2017

First time visitor or regular delegate? Here's everything you need to know about ADE.

About ADE
ADE consists of a conference (day), festival (night) and playground (day & night) program. Which basically means that the city of Amsterdam is all about electronic music for five day and nights, with events in around 160 locations. 

Program: artists and speakers
In 2016, ADE featured over 2,200 artists and 550 speakers. The line-ups for the individual festival events will be announced in the coming months and the complete day and night program will be finalized in September.

It's impossible to visit all clubs and venues, so check back on the ADE site regularly for program updates, start planning early and secure your tickets in time, as individual festival events will be sold out way before October. In the meantime you can sign up here to get personalized ticket updates and to create and save your personal program.

Of course, ADE is about having fun. But it also means business. Which is why over 7,000 professional delegates from all over the world visit ADE to network and exchange ideas. Most of them are working in the field of electronic music, but ADE also attracts numerous delegates from outside the scene. Whether you're looking for examples of great branding, innovative technology or just the latest musical trends, we've got you covered with our multiple conference tracks. 

Access to events
ADE offers multiple tickets. The ADE Pass (5 Day & Night) gives you access to the complete ADE program. The ADE Conference Pass (4 Day) gives you access to the complete day program. An ADE Pass or an ADE Conference Pass also gives you access to our online database. Single festival tickets are available here.

Day program: gear demonstrations, MusicTalks, films, expositions & much more.
ADE features lots of daytime events for (electronic) music enthusiasts. If you're planning on visiting one or more parties, why not stay a little bit longer? Chances are great that one of your favorite artists is doing a MusicTalk. Gear freak or aspiring musician? You can try out the latest equipment for free at the Festival Hangout or attend one of the many workshops in the ADE week. All you need is the ADE Card (€ 10,-).

Travel
Don't wait too long to sort out travel. Most hotels will be fully booked way before October. If you need guidance, try our travel or KLM widget, or have a look at our package deals.
