The 21st edition of the Amsterdam Dance Event will return to the Netherlands' capital this fall. This affair claims to be "the world's largest club-based festival," so even the first section of the lineup contains a large number of artists. Among the big names are Joris Voorn, Levon Vincent, Maya Jane Coles, Nicole Moudaber, Richie Hawtin, Paul Oakenfold, "Little" Louie Vega, and Axwell ? Ingrosso. The festival opens with a collaboration between Henrik Schwarz and Metropole Orkest dubbed "Scripted Orkestra."
In addition to music, there are a number of high-profile speakers, including Kickstarter’s head of music Molly Neuman, Def Jam CEO Steve Bartels, and Martin Goldschmidt, Managing Director of the label Cooking Vinyl.
