Premier Amsterdam promoter Audio Obscura is bringing the rave back to the Dutch capital’s Centraal Station. They’ll be hosting a two parties throughout Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE).

Per usual, the brand is bringing a heady lineup of underground electronic music to the station’s halls. On October 17, Motor City Drum Ensemble will be bringing a taste of house and disco to the decks, alongside left-field darling Young Marco. Patrick Topping will be showcasing his new label Trick on Sunday, October 19, where Spencer Parker and Krystal Klear b2b Manpower will be joining as support.

Audio Obscura became one of the first to use Centraal Station as a dance music venue during ADE in 2018. They hosted Charlotte de Witte, Joris Voorn, Maceo Plex, and more for their successful inaugural run.

Tomorrowland to bring ‘Our Story’ curation to Amsterdam Dance EventAde

To commemorate the 15th anniversary of one of the most influential dance music festival’s on the planet, Belgium’s Tomorrowland is bringing two days of curation to Amsterdam for the hotly attended and industry-focused ADE (Amsterdam Dance Event) October 17-18.

The sweeping thrust of dance music synergy, entitled Our Story, will see performances from Netsky, Tiësto, Steve Aoki, The Bloody Beetroots, Armin van Buuren, and more at the 17,000-person capacity Ziggo Dome.

Catering heavily to industry professionals and avid fans alike, ADE is the largest and most quintessential club/dance music and conference-oriented festival in existence. In 2018, the festival saw its most expansive turn out on record, with 400,000 visitors in attendance through its five-day span.

Tickets to Our Story go on sale June 11, but pre-sale is available now, here. The event will be available to standard ADE pass holders, as well, with limited capacity, however.

Martin Garrix’s STMPD RCRDS to host its own stage at Ultra Music Festival for the first time in 2019

Martin Garrix’s STMPD RCRDS to host its own stage at Ultra Music Festival for the first time in 2019Martin Garri Ultra

If 2018 has proven anything, it’s that Martin Garrix cannot be stopped. The producer has continued his stream of chart topping crossover releases — he put out a 5-track club ready progressive EP, and he teamed up with unexpected subway singer Mike Yung for a gospel-inspired “Dreamer,” proving that the young beatmaker isn’t letting celebrity get in the way of creativity, in terms of breaking the EDM mold.

While Garrix himself has seen considerable success in 2018, his label STMPD RCRDS has gone from just finding its footing to a blooming powerhouse of a label in just a little more than a year. After hosting stages at Tomorrowland, Balaton Sound, and having a label night during Amsterdam Dance Event, in 2019 STMPD RCRDS will be hosting a stage at Ultra Music Festival for the first time. The STMPD RCRDS Stage will feature label frequenters Matisse & Sadko, TV Noise, Lost Frequencies, Junior Sanchez, Brooks, and of course, Garrix himself. Hosting a stage at Ultra will continue to build on the label’s continued success, and this showcases that STMPD is a force to be reckoned with after hosting a stage at one of the most prestigious festivals in the world.

Martin Garrix put up a year for the books in 2018, and with a full stage secured at Ultra next year, it looks like he’ll be continuing his hot streak into 2019.

Amsterdam Dance Event: a compilation of 2018’s key learnings and insights

Now 23 years in the running, Amsterdam Dance Event has grown to be one of the most prolific occasions in the world. Garnering over 400,000 visitors from more than 100 countries and upwards of 1000 events across five days, ADE is unlike any electronic music festival-conference hybrid out there.

200 venues. 2500 performing artists. 600 speakers. These are just a few of 2018’s key statistics that demonstrate why ADE is a leader in the music business. 

It’s this command for curation that makes ADE’s programming unparalleled; from ethereal sound experiences to keynote interviews with the CEO and Founder of Ushuaïa Ibiza, ADE’s scope knows no bounds. And it’s not always about music, either. With its finger on the pulse of society at large, the seminal event also traverses pressing topics such as the future of food, sexism in the age of social media, and cyber security, to name a few.

ADE’s gargantuan festival and conference schedule can be overwhelming for most, particularly first-timers. Its day-into-night programming runs 24 hours per day for five consecutive days, and it’s easy to get lost in the countless panels, parties and networking opportunities. In other words, attendees that don’t pace themselves will burn out much sooner than the rest.

Insight: It is impossible to do and see all that ADE has to offer, and you do not have to be at every event that catches your eye. Mapping out a day-by-day plan in advance – even if tentative – will help you stay organized. Add each of your events to your Google Calendar, with the knowledge that your schedule will undergo last-minute changes. And if you’re setting up a meeting with a potential client, be sure to take down their phone number ahead of time so that you can easily find one another.

Be open to impromptu meetings and getting sidetracked. Not having a plan isn’t always a bad thing. 

Amsterdam Dance Event: a compilation of 2018’s key learnings and insightsMarkRichter 20181018 EMIN2730ADE by Day

ADE’s daytime programming often gets lost in the shuffle as attendees look to the event’s sweeping nighttime roster as its biggest draw. Yet those looking to learn, network or potentially strike a deal look to ADE by day as one of the most valuable opportunities of the year.

Insight: While ADE capitalizes on its rich catalog of parties and showcases, the event’s reputation is also largely rooted in its masterclasses, keynotes and art exhibits. On one end of the city, dozens of DJs around the world are spinning at renowned record store Rush Hour, while on the other, Spinnin’ Academy is building an all-star team of budding DJs and producers. Meanwhile, local artist Dadara is exhibiting his gallery, Life Inside a Pixel, at KochxBos Gallery. It’s evident that the team behind ADE not only had the aspiring producer in mind, but also the artistically inclined and the audiophiles.

Make time to take advantage of ADE by day’s limitless offerings – even if that means calling it an early night. A considerable amount of time and thought are put into constructing the conference, as each year themes shift in accordance with what’s trending in dance music, technology and culture. By far one of the most memorable moments  was ADE’s Sound Experience at The Conscious Club, which coupled the best of slow, tribal beats with live instruments including a flute, violin, harp, contrabass and hand drum.

Amsterdam Dance Event: a compilation of 2018’s key learnings and insightsPiet Van Strijp 20181018 579A3601 1Getting around Amsterdam

Public transportation plays a key role in planning around a hectic ADE schedule. Both the metro (underground) and trams (above ground) are clean, efficient and highly accessible. Oftentimes, public transportation serves as a faster (and cheaper) alternative to Uber.

Insight: Purchase a 6-day metro pass, which is accepted on the metro (underground), tram (above ground) and bus. For about $36, both the metro and trams can quickly transport attendees to nearly any ADE-marked venue. Once you’re in the city, walking from venue to venue shouldn’t take more than 20 minutes, though several trams run from one end of the U-shaped city to the other.

Note: the metro and trams stop running at midnight. However, if you’re heading to venues across the river like A’Dam Tower, Shelter or NDSM-werf, the ferries from Centraal Station run 24 hours per day and are free.

Though some see ADE as a prime networking opportunity, others view the festival as a chance to discover new music and attend some of the best parties in the world. Representing everyone from Hardwell to Maceo Plex to Mano le Tough, it’s hard to not find a showcase worth checking out.

Insight: This year, many ADE pass holders found themselves disappointed when they were denied entry to their party of choice due to capacity. While some venues chose to enforce a “one in, one out” policy, others capped their events completely. If there is a party you absolutely must attend, arrive at least 30 minutes before doors open – especially if your preferred party is sold out or at risk of drawing a big crowd. Purchasing a ticket isn’t a bad idea either, as only a certain number of delegates are admitted into each party before all remaining spots go to ticket holders. Unused tickets can always be sold safely on Ticketswap.

Open-mindedness is also handy here. Consider seeing artists that you’ve never heard of, or opt to check out some of Amsterdam’s most famed venues like Gashouder, Chicago Social Club, De School or Shelter. Curiosity can go a long way, and you might just find some new musicians to include in your next Spotify playlist.

Amsterdam Dance Event: a compilation of 2018’s key learnings and insightsDR 20181016 R2 9276 1Soaking in the sounds (and sights)

It would be remiss to not see Amsterdam’s myriad landmarks like the Rijksmuseum, Anne Frank Museum, Van Gogh Museum, Vondelpark and Dam Square, to name a few. And if you’re lucky, ADE might just be hosting a party at one of the city’s top destinations: in 2016, Maceo Plex became the first electronic artist to perform at the Rijksmusem’s iconic bicycle passage.

Insight: ADE wouldn’t be the same without its surrounding environment, and paying respect to its city is equally as important as the festival itself. There’s no place in the world quite like Amsterdam – a city rich with history, shimmering canals, artistic heritage and fine cheese shops. Set aside some time to see Amsterdam outside of the party setting, and act like a local. Rent a bike and see the city through the eyes of the Dutch. Sample a cone of Belgian fries, or make a new friend with a Soho House membership who will take you to the newly opened House as their guest. Who knows – you might even stumble upon Honey Dijon spinning in the lounge.

Martin Garrix presents new show concept for ADE in newest episode of The Martin Garrix Show

Martin Garrix presents new show concept for ADE in newest episode of The Martin Garrix ShowMartin Garri ADE

Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE) came to a close recently, but Martin Garrix takes viewers back to his extensive preparation for the event in the most recent episode of The Martin Garrix Show. The Garrix team debuted a brand new show concept during his ADE show titled, Team Garrix Presents: Anima.

Anima is a story that features four chapters: consciousness, void, transcendence, and worlds, all of which the attendee is exposed to sonically and visually throughout the performance. As Garrix puts it, the show has truly become an “art form.”

Garrix notes during the episode, “I’ve been looking forward to this week for a long long time. The preparation that went into this week compared to any other show is not even fair. It’s not comparable.”

As viewers watch what goes into the graphics, music videos, lighting, and studio preparation, the aforementioned comment’s validity becomes apparent. The ADE show coincided with Garrix’s full release of his Bylaw EP, wherein he released five tracks in five days. Bylaw collaborators Dyro and Blinders both make cameos during the momentous episode.

Martin Garrix releases second single in just a few day’s time, ‘Yottabyte’

Martin Garrix releases second single in just a few day’s time, ‘Yottabyte’Martin Garri Yottabite

Martin Garrix is coming into Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE) week in saddles blazing considering he’s unveiling yet another single, “Yottabyte” only a day after his collab with Blinders, “Breach (Walk Alone)” dropped.

Garrix is known for teasing unreleased tracks into his sets sometimes years before release. In that vein, hardcore fans will find both new singles all too familiar thanks to his episodic integration of the songs into both his live performance and his The Martin Garrix Show series.

“Yottabyte” combines a light chime melody with a string arrangement that cascades into an electro-house drop. Both releases this week have been a touch less commercial-leaning compared to recent collaborations like “Oceans” and “High on Life,” giving old-school Garrix fans reason to revel. Garrix debuted the tune during his Tomorrowland Mainstage set, a sublime backdrop for the momentous production.

Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE) kicks off next week, and most by now know the event’s robust scheduling means being inundated with party/lineup decisions and challenges. With countless events featuring even bigger talent, planning the “ideal” weekend in Amsterdam can be tricky. To help guide the way, we’ve curated a few of our favorites to help steer attendees in the right direction. Of course, there’s many more to choose from, but here are our 10 events not to miss.

The Classic Music Company

Honey Dijon / Horse Meat Disco / Luke Solomon / Eli Escobar / Sophie Lloyd / Titia

23:59 – 06:00 / Sugar Factory

It’s the first night at ADE, and there are so many parties it’s hard know where to start. Look no further than Sugar Factory — a mainstay in Amsterdam club culture for the better part of the last decade. Featuring Dot Audio sound, and two rooms (a main, and a more intimate space), Sugar Factory is the first ingredient in the recipe for a great night out. Throw in the lineup for the legendary Luke Solomon’s last night of a recent residency and attendees’ ADE appetizer is complete. Headlining is Honey Dijon, known for an incredibly progressive blend of club-sound brilliance, and Horse Meat Disco, a talented duo riding disco’s wave of resurgence. What better way to kick off a long weekend in Amsterdam?


Boys Noize / Christeene / Curses / Ghost Van Bellen / Joost van Bellen / Paul Neverready

22:00 – 07:00 / SEXYLAND

ADE is warming up and it’s time to get a little freaky for night two. Look no further than Sexyland — a new temporary club concept. The concept is simple: New Owner, Every Day. Every experience at Sexyland will be different. Headlining the night is Boys Noize, German industrial techno wunderkin. Fresh off a variety of new releases throughout the past year including a collaboration with Virgil Abloh, the music is guaranteed to be as banging as the space, art-installations, and crowd. 

Anjunadeep Amsterdam

16 Bit Lolitas / Ben Böhmer [live] / Dom Donnelly / James Grant / Penelope / Yotto

23:00 – 05:00 / Tolhuistuin

Perhaps there’s an affinity for the airier sounds of the house spectrum? Head over to Tolhuistuin, the three-room Amsterdam nightclub right off the water with views, and green spaces to boot. There lies a massive Anjunadeep showcase featuring some of the top deep and progressive house acts. Key acts include Yotto, whose original productions find their way into everyone’s favorite DJ’s sets, and 16 Bit Lolitas. These Amsterdam locals are bound to make for a a huge hometown show.

Thuishaven Friday w/ Life and Death

Axel Boman / DJ Tennis / Gommage / Gerd Janson / Henrik Schwarz / Job Jobse / Leon Vynehall / Red Axes and many more

15:00 – 06:00 / Thuishaven

The weekend is finally here! Head over to Thuishaven for an unforgettable evening in and incredibly unique space. With multiple stages nestled between bars in a hugely industrial scene (think scrapyards and abandoned oil tankers), Life and Death’s ADE showcase awaits. The Italian label brought out all the stops, with huge names littered throughout this lineup. Between Henrik Schwartz, Axel Boman, and DJ Tennis, there’s a sound for all styles and a DJ pushing that sound to its furthest limits.

Audio Obscura x Stephan Bodzin at Scheepvaartmuseum

Luna Semara / Nicolas Masseyeff / Patrice Baumel / Stephan Bodzin

20:00 – 03:00 / Scheepvaartmuseum

This one’s definitely something special. First, the promoter, Audio Obscura, which is known for its legendary events in obscure and unexpected settings. Next, the fascinating architecture of the famous National Maritime Museum in central Amsterdam. Finally, four hours of the incredible talents of Stephan Bodzin, the live-techno genius. Combine those three elements for one of ADE’s most unique events this year. For those looking for somewhere to physically stay put while going on a musical journey — look no further.

Awakenings x Maceo Plex Presents Mosaic

Architectural / Job Jobse / Floating Points / Ben UFO / Maceo Plex / Helena Hauff

22:00 – 08:00 / Gashouder

It would be impossible to have an ADE list without mentioning an event at Gashouder. This techno Mecca features a massive dancefloor, booming sounds, incredible production, and even indoor screaming fireworks. With so many events at this pinnacle space, it can be hard to choose just one, but Maceo Plex’s Mosaic party is guaranteed to be one to remember. Backstopped by the brilliant minds behind Awakenings, Mosaic’s lineup is hugely diverse. While mainstays like Maceo Plex and Floating points are obvious must-sees, don’t sleep on Helena Hauff, one of the princesses of acid and electro. That German sound is bound to get attendees jumping.

Berlin: Watergate x Club Feierei

Adana Twins / Jan Blomqvist / Anja Schneider & La Fleur / Seth Schwarz / Jan Oberlaender / Kiasmos and many more

22:00 – 07:00 / WesterUnie

Speaking of Germany, famous Berlin club, Watergate, is hosting what looks to be an unmissable night. The lineup is full of regular German club residents and additional stars from across Europe. Ears will perk at the idea of an Anja Schneider B2B La Fleur set, which is bound to be entirely epic. Two female label bosses and boundary-pushers together on the same stage. German and Swedish sounds will collide. What more could you ask for?

DGTL x Paradise

Jamie Jones / Dubfire [live] / Derrick May / Maya Jane Coles / Richy Ahmed / Darius Syrossian / Luuk van Dijk and more

22:00 – 07:00 / Scheepsbouwloods

Scheepsbouwloods is described by Resident Advisor as the “ultimate rave location on the NDSM-wharf.” What better way to hit the “ultimate rave location” than with the ultimate rave? DGTL, Amsterdam-based cutting edge dance music event producers, bring Jamie Jones‘ Paradise party to this epic location. And of course, following Jones comes an insane lineup of techno, tech house, and house heavyweights. It doesn’t only feature label boss and tech-house party-vibes legend Jones. It doesn’t only feature Derrick May, one of the Detroit-based pioneers of techno and members of legendary trio, Belleville Three. It doesn’t only feature a rare live Dubfire set, featuring all original production. This lineup features all three of them plus Maya Jane Coles, Richy Ahmed, and countless others. 


Tale Of Us / Solomun / Dixon / Recondite / Mind Against / Adriatique / Mathew Jonson / Kobosil / Shifted / and more

14:00 – 14:00 / Warehouse Elementenstraat

For those looking to avoid party-hopping and seeking a true, nearly endless, immersive experience, look no further than the Afterlife party on Saturday night. Curated by masters Tale of Us, the lineup a deep mix of incredibly diverse minimal and masterful artists. Not only are Tale of Us, Ardiatique, and Mind Against hitting the decks, but there’s a huge variety of live sets in the mix. Mathew Jonson, Recondite, and Agents of Time are all coming out to round out the incredible mix of DJs with their live sets. Additionally, a special Solomun B2B Dixon set is bound to feature a full dance floor surging to dimension bending sounds.

elrow goes to ADE


23:00 – 06:00 / De Kromhouthal

An elrow party is not to be missed. The legendary Barcelona day club that has taken their event international. Known for its incredible tech-house and dance party sounds, elrow is has made a name for itself with the sheer spectacle of it all. No lineup announced yet? No problem. Attendees can expect everything from confetti blasts to themed dancers in the crowd on stilts to hundreds of inflatable pool toys to throw at friends — and, of course, the dancing chicken. Aside from the spectacle of it, the music at elrow is guaranteed to meet high standards. The theme for this party is Chinese “ROW” year, and time will tell exactly what that entails.

Hardwell’s final DJ performance will be live-streamed

Hardwell’s final DJ performance will be live-streamedScreen Shot 2018 10 11 At 3.10.22 PM

All good things come to an end… for now. For Hardwell fans, they will have one final chance to see the Dutch producer perform live at Amsterdam Dance Event on October 18. For those who are unable to make it overseas, the all-ages show will be live-streamed across numerous social and digital channels from ADE.

Just last month, Hardwell detailed in a Facebook post his decision to focus on himself. He writes, “I have grown from an ambitious kid with everything to gain into the 30-year old I am today whilst evolving as an artist with triple the speed of my aging process. Over the past few years I’ve come to know myself better and better and over time I realized that there’s still so much I want to share with my family and friends, so many roads I’d like to explore, but being Hardwell 24/7 leaves too little energy, love, creativity and attention for my life as a normal person to do so.”

Tune in with Hardwell and the Metropole Orkest’s Symphony: The Global Revolution of Dance at 8 p.m. CEST on October 18 at the Ziggo Dome Amsterdam.

With new leadership at the helm, Amsterdam Dance Event 2018 is set to be as innovative and captivating as ever

As with any major event, new executive leadership inevitably leads to fresh perspective and change. As Mariana Sanchotene prepares to take the reigns on October 1 as Amsterdam Dance Event’s new Director, succeeding Richard Zijlma, the 2018 edition of ADE will arguably boast a new kind of luster. And that’s not the only notable change ADE is about to undergo; the festival and conference behemoth is officially transitioning out of its longtime relationship with promoter Buma Cultuur. For the first time ever, Amsterdam Dance Event will soon become an independent foundation.

In a sense, 2018 will mark the end of an era. Since its inception in 1995, both Amsterdam Dance Event and Buma Cultuur cultivated what eventually became the largest (and loudest) movement dance music has seen. While some argue ADE is a multi-day, 24-hour party, there’s so much more to unearth across its five-day lifespan. ADE is culture, technology, education, mentorship, sustainability, business, philanthropy and wellness – all bundled into one overarching event.

This year, South Korea is ADE’s 2018 focus country: it’s a fitting selection given it houses one of the most diverse and technically advanced music markets in the world. A dedicated pavilion will give visitors the chance to learn more about South Korea’s music scene, network and – for the lucky few – perhaps strike a new business deal.

Ahead of Amsterdam Dance Event 2018, we’ll highlight why it’s the most innovative, creative and multifarious dance music event in the world.

As part of ADE’s philanthropic efforts, the festival is offering attendees the chance to make a difference while traveling to Amsterdam for the annual affair. Brave souls are invited to join in on a bike tour from Berlin to Amsterdam to raise money for Bridges for Music, a non-profit that supports electronic music education and accessibility in developing countries.

ADE Hangover

Though access to ADE’s full range of day-into-night events doesn’t come without a price, Sunday’s free event, ADE Hangover, will make its second appearance in 2018. ADE Hangover, which is intended to be a designated R&R oasis, will offer live bands, DJs, art installations, an arcade, hot tubs and – for the first time ever – a sauna.

Audio Obscura

Revered for hosting parties in Amsterdam’s most unlikely locations, Audio Obscura will invite house and techno kingpins Charlotte de Witte and Joris Voorn to perform at Lil’ Amsterdam – a collection of 18 pop-up shops – inside the Amsterdam Central Station. The creative hub, which opened in August 2017, displays the best of art, culture, sustainable fashion and lifestyle. And in 2018, the space will be completely transformed into ADE’s newest and brightest stage.

ADE not only provides a breadth of nighttime events to choose from, but also coveted opportunities for producers to have their music heard by the industry’s finest. ADE Sound Lab serves as the aspiring producer’s watering hole, brimming with A&R managers, artist managers, agents producers and event promoters. For those looking to get their music in the right hands, or simply brush up on their production chops, music lovers are encouraged to take advantage of ADE Sound Lab’s myriad resources including workshops, master classes and studio sessions, to name a few.

ADE Beats

ADE Beats – a slight departure from ADE’s signature underground and big room backbone – offers inspiring talks and networking sessions on the best of urban genres such as hip-hop and bass. Featuring representatives from Def Jam, Empire, Island Records and countless other labels, ADE Beats is a space for curiosity, learning and potential new business opportunities. Guest speakers include Bruce Carbone (A&R, Def Jam) and Alex Boateng (A&R, Island Records).

ADE Health, a thoughtful initiative that provides a safe space for music fans and industry folk alike to discuss mental and physical health in the music industry, is slated to return in 2018. The session will facilitate an open conversation surrounding stress while on the road, and how to combat the negative impacts of being a musician in healthy and productive ways.

ADE Green

A pioneer in sustainability, innovation and social change, ADE Green will highlight the ways in which the music industry can take better care of our planet. From discussions on reducing plastic waste to how dancing can oftentimes spearhead a political movement, ADE Green will teach attendees how to incorporate small but impactful habits into their everyday lives. It will also showcase six startups on the bleeding edge of sustainable events, through products such as waterless female urinals and biodegradable tents.

Watch Martin Garrix turn 21 in the third episode of the third season of ‘The Martin Garrix Show’

“Less is more” is not an applicable admonition when it comes to Martin Garrix releases; Garrix jointly released his latest single, “Burn Out,” with fellow collaborator Justin Mylo on September 14, and now follows the track with the third installment of the third season of The Martin Garrix Show. Episode three shifts the serial’s focus from Garrix’s live performance at Amsterdam Dance Event — as featured in episode two — to the dance music dynamo’s ensuing appearance before a crowd of 38,000 at Gelsenkitchen, Germany’s World Club Dome.

Somewhat of a visual touring diary, The Martin Garrix Show follows Garrix behind the decks to offer an intimate behind the scenes look at Garrix as he electronically engrosses Dome attendees. “I’m going to do a sit-down!” Garrix informs the camera before hopping on the mic to deliver instructions to the crowd — but the highlight of the third episode is Garrix’s exclamation that he “just turned 21!” Episode three concludes with a post set pizza party where the DJ’s closest friends serenade him, wishing the powerhouse producer a very happy 21st birthday.
