Amsterdam Dance Event holds a special place in the Dance music calendar. As many of us flock from all over the globe to experience clubbing like no other city, over the course of five days, ADE provides the perfect place to hear new music, find new DJs and attend events in the most obscure buildings. Amsterdam’s clubbing culture is one of the best in Europe and there’s only one place to be this October!

We’ve given you an overview of some of the biggest events going down…

Promising a night of precision Techno and raw basslines, Kaluki parties have become legendary for all the right reasons – you won’t see a line up of this calibre anywhere else at ADE and to top it off, it’s Nick “The Chief” Yates’ birthday too, so in true Kaluki fashion, expect the unexpected.
