We’ve all got at least one more reason to love Amsterdam now. This October, from the 21st til the 24th, 80,000 dance music lovers, and just about the entirety of the industry behind the music’s many genres, will converge on 40 different venues to witness the 700-plus DJs and live music acts that make up the 14th edition of the Amsterdam Dance Event. Among the festival’s prestigious ranks are long-standing artists Carl Craig, Laurent Garnier, The Black Dog, and Richie Hawtin, along with more recent faves like Boys Noize and Appleblim, plus hundreds more. If you love techno, house, electro, disco—hell, even trance—and you can make it to Amsterdam, the ADE is your place to be.
