Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE) is just a few weeks away. This year’s edition will be the first full one since 2019. Last year they returned after a two-year hiatus but at reduced capacity. The program is almost entirely finalized with line-ups now. We thought it would be good to list our favorite events so you can dance the night away 5 straight days.

ADE kicks off in style with event after event running late into the morning. Tomorrowland will present Eric Prydz HOLO. This will be the first of two sold-out shows at the Ziggo Dome. Look for after-market tickets to attend this spectacle.
