Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE), the world’s largest festival and business conference for electronic music, has announced their first wave of artists for October. With Bonobo, Charlotte de Witte, Jeff Mills, Laurent Garnier, Martin Garrix, Nina Kraviz, Richie Hawtin and Boris Brejcha to just name a few, organizers expect a record-breaking 400,000 visitors for its 23rd edition.

The five-day and night gathering runs from October 17-21, 2018 and is the world’s leading festival and conference program, offering an extensive art, film, photography program, alongside music and the latest trends in technology and social good.

ADE-director Richard Zijlma states: “We’re almost at the point of reaching the magical 400,000 visitors mark, and we still see lots of opportunities to grow. ADE aims to be a world stage for musical talent and the music industry. With visitors from more than 100 countries now you can confidently claim that Amsterdam is truly the beating heart of the worldwide music industry during ADE, while being at the same time a breeding ground for cultural and technological innovation for five days and nights.
