After a sold out first edition, ADE LIVE returns to Paradiso, Melkweg and Sugarfactory to showcase the best live electronic music artists. For the second year in a row, the Amsterdam venues join forces with Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE) to offer live electronic music a serious spot within the biggest club festival in the world. Among the first artists that will perform on ADE’s Wednesday, Thursday and Friday are Fatima Yamaha, Hercules & Love Affair, Anna of the North, Phlake and Vessels.
The first edition of ADE LIVE proved that electronic live acts an exciting and growing part of the dance music scene. Adventurous fans and professionals saw talented artists like RÜFUS, HVOB, SUUNS and Jesssy Lanzy burn the house down. They built the foundation for a prominent place within the biggest club-festival of the world. We pick up where we left off, with even more ambition: more venues, more artists and more to discover. In addition to the OZ and Upstairs, Melkweg will open their biggest hall Max and Sugarfactory will also be showcasing on the first night, in addition to the second. Paradiso only used the small room last year, but this year they open up all doors. A statement that shows ADE LIVE deserves to get bigger and the acts more recognition. Expect dark-romantic electro-funk from Fatima Yamaha, also known as Bas Bron, who amassed a cult status with ‘What’s A Girl To Do’ and recently made a comeback with his latest EP ‘Araya’. The nu-disco, house and drop of Techno of Hercules and Love Affair, Arjunadeep’s Cubicolor and the jazzy electro of Marian Hill are just a few of the names we released and know there’s still a lot more to come!
