The fantastic ADE agenda!
The ADE agenda is filled with artists worth a listen. But with a line-up of over 2500 artists, it is sometimes hard to choose an event from the ADE agenda. But no stress, we are here to help. In this blog, we will let you know what our favorites are and we will help you fill in your ADE agenda for 2017!
The big names
Just like every year, ADE has attracted some major names in the industry. The ADE agenda from this year include Armin van Buuren and Hardwell who will be performing a duo set during the Amsterdam Music Festival in the Amsterdam Arena. Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano have their own show on Saturday in AFAS Live. Festival Awakenings always have their shows at the Gashouder. This years line-up includes Len Faki, Adam Beyer, and Paul Kalkbrenner. Dutch superstar Martin Garrix even has two shows on the ADE agenda this year. Both in the Amsterdam RAI.
ADE Live is an event with live electronic music. This year will be the second time for ADE Live to take place in Melkweg, Paradiso, and Sugarfactory. 23 artists have been announced to perform at ADE Live, including Hercules & Love Affair, Yamaha, Red Axes 4 and Marian Hill. The genres range from romantic Electro Funk to melodious Deephouse and soulful electronic R&B. ADE Live gives a new meaning to a performance of electronic music. Instead of DJing the music, the artists actually create the music live on stage.
But there is more...
You might think that all the names mentioned above are enough to keep you entertained, but there is more. Other not to miss names are:
- Nina Kraviz: a Russian electronic music artist who has been making big waves in the scene the past years.
- Ricardo Villalobos: one of the most important minimal DJs in Europe.
- Roger Sanchez: he will take you on a magic mystery tour across all genres.
- Cosmic Gate: these two men are the perfect union of musical minds.
As we are used to from the ADE agenda, there are also plenty of spots for new and upcoming artists. In venues all over Amsterdam, you will find relatively unknown artists, and you just might discover your new favorite. And now it is time to grab a pen and fill in your ADE agenda!
