The conference track for hip-hop, bass and beats returns to Melkweg for a special anniversary edition on Friday October 18th.

After recent news about Chicago legend Ron Trent and the 100 years of electronic music instruments focus, we are delighted to announce that ADE Beats is preparing a special anniversary edition. 

The international Beats platform started out in Rotterdam ten years ago as an initiative of the Rotterdam city council, Buma Cultuur and urban venue De Nieuwe Oogst and joined forces with Amsterdam Dance Event in 2015. In Amsterdam the mission became to celebrate and push forward the global success of hip-hop, bass and beats, from Atlanta to Mumbai, from afrobeats to urban latin. “Hip-hop, bass and beats are worldwide,” says co-director, Saul van Stapele. “And that is exactly what our conference reflects – a truly international perspective.” 

With its inspiring Q&A’s, networking sessions, master classes and panels about upcoming hip-hop markets, business opportunities and global trends, ADE Beats has become the place to be for a full update on the state of hip-hop, bass and beats worldwide. The past decade inspiring speakers from all over the globe visited the Beats platform to share their insider knowledge about creating an international career as a hip-hop, bass and beats artist, and talk in-depth about their work in recording studio’s, industry board rooms, music venues and festivals.
