Amsterdam Dance Event’s New SLEEP/OVER at NDSM
ADE’s premier SLEEP/OVER, a temporary campsite, will be located just 15 minutes away from Amsterdam’s central station. NDSM is an expansive post industrial Shipyard. This temporary mini-city is set in an ideal location because of the large numbers of expected international visitors. Guests can take the party back to their heated campsite. There will be 400 sleeping accommodations with an insanely gorgeous view of Amsterdam.
The ADE Conference
Another incredibly special and unique aspect of Amsterdam Dance Event is the conference. It allows the international music scene to connect. This enables an optimal environment for both the business and insipiration aspect of electronic music. ADE’s conference aims to appeal to every component of the entire music industry. To accomplish this, its organizers divide the event into nine themed sub-programs. By doing so, the conference creates platforms for start-ups, students, business professionals, aspiring artists and producers, VJ’s, stage designers, and visual artists. Additionally, the programs provide an extensive amount of insight into the the connection between dance music and business, technology and music, harder urban music genres, and the ecologically friendly approaches to the dance music world.
Speakers for this incredible conference include, producers Tommy D (GB) and Luca Pretolesi (IT). Steve Bartels (CEO of Def Jam, US), Bruce Eskowitz (COO Red Light Management, US), Molly Neuman (head of Music Kickstarter, US), and Dan Miller (Mute Records, GB) are also going to speak.
Added speakers to the conference were also announced in the second wave by Amsterdam Dance Event’s representatives. CEO and co-founder of My Love Affaire, Raphael Aflalo, will speak about his insights during ADE Dance & Brands. This is a sub-conference that connects brands with the growing electronic music industry. He will speak on October 20th. Additionally, Hudsan Mohawke, a Scottish electronic music entrepenuer, Soulection, a game changing collective out of L.A, Om’mas who is a Grammy Award winner, and Holland’s very own MC’s Sevn Alis & Hef were also revealed as conference speakers.
