Big names locked in for Amsterdam Dance Event 2013
Over the years the Amsterdam Dance Event has established itself as one of the dance industry’s premier conferences, drawing a huge selection of DJs/producers, label managers, publicists, booking agents and beyond. Even more impressive though are the range of parties and club nights that explode across Amsterdam, and in 2013 as many as 2,000 DJs and live acts are set to perform across more than 90 different venues throughout the week.
ADE has confirmed the first selection of artists who will be performing during the conference, and unsurprisingly it’s a seminal list of artists from across the dance spectrum, starting with big EDM players like Tiesto and Calvin Harris, taking in veterans like Carl Cox and Danny Tenaglia, and continuing through to rising names like Maya Jane Coles and Maceo Plex.
On the conference side of things, ADE has also begun the drip feed of who will be speaking and presenting panels. Shailendra Singh, founder of India’s Sunburn festival (and one of inthemix’s 50 Most Powerful People In EDM) will be presenting a Q&A session, alongside SFX Entertainment’s head of acquisitions Shelly Finkel and techno heavyweight Richie Hawtin. You can dig into the full ADE line-up over at its website.
