Recently confirmed events include the A’DAM Toren lineup with over 25 events in a single building, an indoor ADE edition of Milkshake Festival, as well as events at Koepelkerk, OT301 and new venues including The Other Side and Yellow House. ADE 2022 will close on Sunday with, among others, the free-to-access ADE Hangover at the NDSM wharf.
Alongside the festival, the ADE Arts & Culture daytime program returns for its second edition. Exploring the crossovers between art and electronic music, the program will also highlight mental health and wellbeing, with events such as the mindful art experience Mark to the Music with DJ Marcelle at Museum van de Geest, and the serene installation Where There Is Light at Westerkerk.
