Amsterdam Dance Event 18-20 ottobre 07: la più importante dj convention del pianeta terra

Quel che c'è da notare di quest'evento è che come sempre gli olandesi sono avanti anni luce e non hanno la spocchia di noi italiani, sempre pronti a dividere i dj in commerciali e non commerciali. I dj sono tutti commerciali e non fanno musica di ricerca, in quanto se fai ricerca non fai ballare. O fanno tutti musica di ricerca ballerina. Tiesto equivale in questo a Sinclar e Danny Howells e a chi vi viene in mente. E per questo si tratta di un evento IMPERDIBILE per gli amanti della club culture mondiale.

Apart from the club festival, ADE offers music industry professionals the opportunity to meet international business partners, introduce their business to an international audience and get in touch with new people, new music and new trends. Held in the centre of Amsterdam at the historic canal-side Felix Meritis building, the ADE conference is not only a great place to do business but also a place to get inspired. With four networking and business lounges and a broad program of panels, keynotes and meetings, ADE provides a platform and gateway for anyone who's working in the electronic music business. The ADE gives you the opportunity to get heard, be seen and experience the best of what dance music has to offer. Says Richard Zijlma “People in the industry see it more and more as essential to be here and the event has found its own dynamic and is growing every year.”

"I could feel it since my very first ADE, 11 years ago...That's the place to be if you want to be a part of the Worldwide Dance Community! A unique convention were you can meet professionals related only to Dance Music! The best chance to meet old and future colleagues, to introduce a new Artist, DJ, Song or even technology, but also to discover the new talents and trends, without spending a fortune!

The night life was pretty awesome. Across three nights there were some amazing parties – all very busy and very exciting. I was very happy we took the radio show to Amsterdam, the timing could not have been better with Fedde Le Grand and Mason riding high with two of the hottest records in the world right now!’ Pete Tong / BBC Radio 1 / UK
