Amsterdam Dance Event will join forces with Paradiso Amsterdam, Melkweg Amsterdam and Sugarfactory in preparation of a new festival. As ‘ADE LIVE’, they will take initiative to start a new two-day showcase festival for rising stars in electronic live music. Inspired by well-known festivals such as SXSW (Austin), The Great Escape (Brighton) and Reeperbahn (Hamburg) this festival tries to close the gap between music lovers, bookers and promoters with the latest and greatest from new, upcoming acts. The first edition will take place on the eve of Thursday October 20th and Friday October 21th.
With live music currently taking a more prominent place in the Dance scene, promoters believed it was time to support these new acts by giving them a stage.
