It’s the 20th birthday of the world’s biggest club festival for electronic music. This week I am also djing at ADE and so are 2000 other artists…But I am present on the conference / dayprogram, so no dancing crowds but that’s fine with me. Last year I had such a good time and met few of my heroes who where haning out in the netwerk lounge and told me they liked what I was playing. The conference is the epicentre of the dayprogram, where delegates, labelmanagers, pr people and anybody who has anything to do with electronic / dance music meet up for new connections. http://www.amsterdam-dance-event.nl/ The Big Debate, Brakke Grond, adres: Nes 45
Few of my ADE recomendations:
