Amsterdam Dance Event announces first wave of 2016 festival talent

Amsterdam Dance Event, the behemoth electronic music festival and conference that takes shape each fall, has revealed the first phase of its 2016 festival acts. This year’s installment of the annual event will take place from October 19-23, with 375,000 travelers projected to attend the event’s 21st year.

Among the performers slated to perform at ADE this year are Dixon, Tale of Us, Maya Jane Coles, Adam Beyer, and The Martinez Brothers, while hundreds of more will also be in attendance. Amsterdam Dance Event Festival will commence with ‘Scripted Orkestra,’ an artistic collaboration between Henrik Schwarz and non-classical orchestra Metropole Orkest.

In addition to the gathering’s sweeping roster of artists, confirmed keynote speakers for the conference aspect of ADE include Kickstarter’s Head of Music Molly Neuman, Def Jam CEO Steve Bartel and COO of Red Light Management Bruce Eskowitz. A staggering 400 speakers will also be announced in the months leading up to ADE.
