In 2008, two best friends from the Netherlands recognized a need in their local community: something fun to do on the weekends. Therefore, Essam Jansen and Alex Hes founded E&A Events, a Dutch-based event production powerhouse. E&A had their international breakthrough in 2012 when they hosted the first edition of “Don’t Let Daddy Know” (DLDK) in the world’s biggest nightclub, Privilege Ibiza. The goal for this event was to bring a unique, cross-over sound by having live acts come onstage during a DJ’s performance. And successful it was. Nowadays E&A Events is an organization that hosts events like Kingsland, TIKTAK Festival and DLDK. The latter in seven different countries, including the United Kingdom, Spain, and Belgium. DLDK embarked on its debut world tour in spring 2014 with a sold out Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam as the first stop.
This year the DLDK-tour continues with stops in Hong Kong and Istanbul.
For this year's Amsterdam Dance Event E&A Events will present two major
events: PRJCT, a brand new concept hosted at the RAI Amsterdam touching all relevant dance genres, and Martin Garrix at the Heineken Music Hall.
