Full programme announced for ADE 2021

While the ADE Pro conference had to be cancelled due to “months of regulatory uncertainties up until four weeks before the event, paired with strict conditions surrounding international travel”, according to an official statement on the ADE website the team has instead poured all of its energy and resources into making “ADE Festival as safe and unforgettable as possible.”
Part of this included shifting the immense offering of events from night to day, as, according to Dutch government rules, clubs, venues and indoor events are forced to close between 00:00 and 06:00.
The ADE 2021 programme looks as varied and exciting as ever, though, with offerings including everything from soundbath workshops and techno brunches to comedy nights, exhibitions, and record store meet & greets.
Other ADE 2021 highlights to look forward to include an Awakenings x Charlotte De Witte techno extravaganza, two Fritz Kalkbrenner live shows, a DGTL event starring Disclosure and Honey Dijon, an A State Of Trance special with Armin van Buuren, Loveland collaborations with Solomun, Circoloco, Pan-Pot and others, as well as an elrow Growenlandia pop-up – to name just a few!
With 250 events to choose from, electronic music connoisseurs will be kept busy over the course of the five-day festival.
