Club 2CV & Nein Records present: A Love From Outer Space
Although ADE unofficially starts with Techno Tuesday, Sugarfactory kicks off the annual electronic music showcase in style on Wednesday. British label Nein Records teams up with Club2CV for an all-night set by A Love From Outer Space. Disco might be at the root of this party, but expect music in its broadest sense from widely respected selectors Andrew Weatherall and Sean Johnston.


Backspace x Donker present: Roush X WOW! label night
Thursday night has a line-up of heavyweights, with POPOF, Hector Couto, Cuartero and Mart-T on the chart. These major league DJs fly from show to show, and are bound for Sugarfactory’s dance floor during ADE. The smoking area is the playfield of local heroes Bram Fidder, Esther Duijn and others.
