Art / Music



In its 15th year Amsterdam Dance Event has grown to become the world’s biggest club festival of electronic music, offering music lovers from around the world a taste of the latest trends and developments in the electronic music scene. With over 700 artists from all over the globe performing in 44 clubs, ADE turns the city of Amsterdam into a true kaleidoscope of electronic music for 4 days.

This month, from October 20th to 23rd Amsterdam will be taken over by 100,000+ festival-goers, and additional 2,500 music industry professionals. It’ll be quite easy to get lost in the chaos of ADE, so allow us at BIg Up to guide you through the madness into the warm sound of heavy sublines and deep bass.

On the following pages you will be able to find Big Upโ€™s daily guide to ADE.
