Amsterdam Dance Event is expecting more visitors than ever this year.
The world’s largest club-based festival and music conference reckons around 375,000 people will arrive in the Dutch capital for its 22nd edition, being held from October 18 to 22.
This year will also see ADE again take its operation abroad to Mumbai, India in February and return to host a showcase at SXSW in Austin, USA.
Along with the announcement of the dates, an ADE official said of India: "From 23rd to 25th February, ADE Global Sessions Mumbai will host interactive Q&As with top artists, exclusive industry discussions, networking and speed dating sessions, strategy meetings, master classes and much more as part of ADE's on-going commitment to connect dance culture worldwide. ADE will also co-present India's Biggest Guestlist Club Festival, which takes place on the same dates."
Confirmed keynote interviews include Riyaaz Amlani, CEO and managing director of the Impresario group, and DDP founder and CEO James ‘Disco Donnie’ Estopinal. The focus will be on connecting the booming Indian and Asian electronic scenes with the rest of the world.
