With the rescheduling of an expected 350+ planned events, Amsterdam Dance Event 2021 is gearing up for its return to physical form in just two weeks. As a result of the recently announced Covid restrictions by the Dutch government, the ADE team has worked together with the Amsterdam municipality, club owners and festival organisers to help enable the city's electronic music scene to host festival events during the day.
Because of the ‘flexibility and resilience shown by the organisers under the ADE umbrella’, almost all events have been able to move to time slots allowed within the current regulations. Currently over 250 events in more than 90 venues are confirmed within the hours from 6:00 until 00:00, with many more to be added over the next two weeks.
“Although a small number of organisers had to cancel their events, there’s more than plenty left to create an amazing ADE. Despite the limitations, we are pleased that ADE can help support the sector in this way after a difficult period, and that together we show how strong we are as an industry,” said Meindert Kennis and Jan-Willem van de Ven, the two co-directors of ADE.
Amsterdam Dance Event’s festival program can be found on the ADE website and will be further updated online over the days leading up to ADE, taking place from 13-17 October.
