This weekend Amsterdam is alive with the Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE). The ADE describes itself as the leading electronic music platform and the biggest club festival in the world for the whole spectrum of electronic sub-genres. During this weekend there will be festivals and a conference bringing in many of the biggest DJs into the city. Many of the city’s straight and gay clubs will be taken over as they become venues for the ADE. For more information about ADE and the events around the city, check out their website and Facebook page.
The ADE this year honoured the late mayor of Amsterdam, Eberhard van der Laan, who was a supporter of Amsterdam’s nightlife and club scene.
