Whether you are a night owl or an early riser: ADE promises five full days and nights of adventurous club nights, hot tub sessions, culture and DJs. Check in to your hotel room, experience performances at Doka, grab a little something to eat in Werkplaats and top it off with cocktails on our rooftop terrace. Feel like you’re on top of Amsterdam? Good, because you are!
This year ADE Playground is all about connecting art, nightlife and inspiration. During ADE Volkshotel offers a range of events focusing mostly on inspiration: hip hop label Neerlands Dope invited artists like Akwasi to share their inspiration, Nineties Productions takes over Doka with a raw and musical performance inspired by the famous American writer Bukowski, and during Classic Album Sundays you can enjoy an immersive album listening sessions influenced by ‘Homework’ by Daft Punk. For a more detailed eye on our program during the ADE, please check out our agenda.
