It won’t be long before Amsterdam and its club scene will be under the spell of the mighty ADE. The Amsterdam crowd will meet those from abroad, all joining forces over a span of five mezmerising days full of cool daytime events, seminars, networking possibilities and of course, 300+ parties to choose from during the late (and early) hours. But with so many events, we thought it was a good idea to give some guidance as to what are the best events in a specific theme or sound. To kick off our ADE Event Special we give you the best German-flavoured parties, where you’ll find the hottest electronic artisans from the country.
