Amsterdam Dance Event has a new home. 

It was announced last week that the ADE, dubbed "the world’s biggest club festival for electronic music," is moving to the Nieuwe DeLaMar Theater as major renovations are set to take place at Felix Meritis, the old venue. 

ADE director Richard Zijlma said in a statement, "Having been sold out for the last seven years, plus with more delegates coming from an ever greater number of countries, especially Korea, China, Africa, India and South America, the renovation of the Felix Meritis offers us an opportunity to try a different venue."

This isn't the only change that's coming to ADE: In addition to the change of venue, the event also announced a new ticketing system that gives attendees more freedom to choose which shows they will attend by offering both day and night passes. It's set to take place Oct. 18-22. For more information, head to
