Whether you’re interested in learning the art of vinyl DJing from Héctor Oaks and Van Anh, popping into a session with Darude or getting tips on how to curate a DJ set with Mama Snake, this year’s ADE Lab has something for everyone.
The annual Amsterdam Dance Event features nearly a week of programming, covering anything and everything with regards to electronic music culture. The world’s preeminent summit has hundreds of events spread out across the city, including bespoke workshops, club nights, festivals, discussions, panels and courses, providing an unmatched opportunity to network with industry pros.
The ADE Lab is specifically designed to inspire the next generation of electronic music enthusiasts through special masterclasses, demo pitches and technology showcases. This year, attendees can test the latest tech from Ableton, AIAIAI Audio, DMC40/Technics, Roland, Universal Audio and many more.
This year’s Lab programming is flush with unique programming. Nostalgix and Modular Moon will host seminars, Femme Bass Mafia will run a DJ mentoring program for femme, trans and non-binary individuals, and Reinier Zonneveld will offer a demo drop session for his venerated Filth On Acid label.
These experiences only scratch the surface. Each year, ADE features over 2,500 artists and 600 speakers in about 200 different venues across Amsterdam.
