ITM goes to ADE! Hawtin, Kleinenberg, Voorn, Armin & more
The Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE) returned last month, proving again why it’s acclaimed as the world’s best electronic music conference, and this year inthemix was there to sample all the industry (and party) action, rocking up to check out the panels as well as sampling some of the many star-studded event that happened across Amsterdam over the course of the conference.
You might have already read our tidy little interview with Armin van Buuren where he confirmed ‘Armin Only’ would return in 2010, but this was only the tip of the iceberg as our roving reporter Katrina Loughrey was kept busy speaking to some of dance music’s biggest and brightest names. Check out our coverage so far…
Founded fourteen years ago, ADE was originally a humble gathering of a few hundred music professionals, as well as a few parties across a couple of different clubs, but since then it’s expanded to become the ultimate platform to business networking and staying abreast of new music and trends. Amazingly, ADE now attracts 2,000 delegates from 42 countries, over 700 DJs and live acts across 44 venues, and around 150 journalists and media outlets!
