Amsterdam Dance Event week is right around the corner and over 2200 artists will be performing. The difficult thing will not be attending ADE but to choose from this wide selection of events that will be taking place. That’s why we have prepared a list with the shows NOT to miss at this year’s ADE.
Starting up Awakenings X Joris Voorn & Friends will most definitely be one of the highlights of the week. The Dutch DJ and Producer has gathered up with Kolsch, Sven Vath and others to offer an unforgettable party.
We then have the U.K Duo Third Party bringing us their own Record Label Party. They will be bringing artists like Kryder, D.O.D, and Portuguese rising talent Pete K.
Third Party aren’t the only ones who will be performing at their own Label Party, Nicky Romero presents to us 5 Years of Protocol. He will be teaming up with 19 other groups to tear down the Melkweg in Amsterdam.
When it comes to Trance we have the iconic A State of Trance, this one will be number 836, and will have, of course, Armin Van Buuren, but also Aly & Fila, Cosmic Gate and others, to create a fantastic night for all the Trance fans out there.
For those who are more into Trap & Dubstep, don’t worry, we haven’t forgotten about you, as Monstercat announced Monstercat Uncaged. After their unbelievable takeover at EDC, they will be taking over the Melkweg with some unbelievable names like NGHTMRE, Seven Lions, Pegboard Nerds, Feint and other big names.
As for the all those wishing for a harder style, Jebroer presents Paranoia. During the first night of ADE, Jebroer will be bringing madness to the Q-factory with Outsiders, Dirtcaps, Dutch Movements and many more.
Last but not least we have, probably the main event of the whole week, Amsterdam Music Festival (AMF), where the long-awaited DJ MAG 2017 awards will be handed. This event will be receiving a lot of previous year’s Top 10 Artists like Armin Van Buuren, Hardwell, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, and many other names. From Trap with Yellow Claw to Psy Trance with Vini Vici, this event will have a big variety of genres to satisfy all tastes.
Now the question remains, who will win DJ MAG 2017?
