ADE Announcements: Major News For EDM’s Biggest Conference, Amsterdam Dance Event is a staple of the international EDM circuit, with artists from all over the world attending and taking part in a wide variety of events and shows. Combining live music, talks, and innovative artistic shows, ADE draws huge crowds every year and continues to expand and develop in fascinating ways.
Today we’ll dive deep into two recent announcements about this year’s event and what this news could mean for attendees.
Claptone Announced As ADE 2023's First Speakers
Enigmatic, artistic, and utterly intriguing, Claptone is a duo like no other. Known for their iconic golden masks and captivating sound, Claptone has been wowing audiences with their music for over a decade.
But this will be more than just an ordinary talk – not according to ADE’s press release. Instead, the conference space is “set to be fully transformed into a truly immersive Claptone Experience, taking professionals into a captivating atmosphere that perfectly complements the artist’s enigmatic persona.”
What can we take away from that?
Given previous years, it’s unsurprising that ADE is diving into experimental and immersive experiences as a format for their talks. Precisely what this experience will entail is a more complex question to answer, but what we can be sure of is that it will be unique.
We know that it will offer fans a unique glimpse into the story of Claptone, their journey as artists, and how they got to where they are today. The exhibit will feature plenty of behind-the-scenes footage and end with an interview/Q&A. For fans of Claptone, this truly is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to learn more about them and their creative process.
ADE Adds A Fourth Day To The Conference
With demand only increasing yearly, it should be no surprise that ADE has decided to add a fourth day to this year’s conference. With more talks, experiences, and opportunities for networking within the industry, the extra day will help add even more scope to this vast and varied event.
Of course, given how much the music industry has grown over the last decade, with genres broadening and becoming more diverse than ever, this extra day couldn’t be more welcome. After all, the world of EDM is now so broad that, even with four days of jam-packed events, there’s no way any event could cover everything, but if there’s an event willing to give it a try, then it’s undoubtedly ADE.
So what does this mean for the future of ADE? Are we likely to see more days added in years to come? Well, while the organizers haven’t yet spoken about expanding into another day, it’s possible that the event could continue to grow, even expanding beyond its current scale. Only time will tell.
