In a move to further strengthen their commitment to being at the core of electronic music (and the art within it), Amsterdam Dance Event has announced a new addition to its prestigious conference – a new Arts & Culture program.

The new program aims to let electronic music enthusiasts explore the world of dance outside of the dancefloor throughout Amsterdam from October 13th – 17th. Attendees can expect pioneering collaborations with Nelly Ben Hayoun, Helena Basilova, and an artist residency program with Nxt Museum.

Electronic music and art are inseparably bound together, and ADE is devoted to providing a stage for the creative expressions that connect dance music culture and the world of arts. Through a dedicated program of exhibitions, special performances, art installations and documentaries, ADE Arts & Culture is set to become the ideal place to explore the cross-pollination between club and culture.

The first confirmed highlights include an artist residency showcase by Nxt Museum and ADE on its opening night, a series of spiritual healing experiences for ravers by award-winning director and designer Nelly Ben Hayoun and an unplugged performance by pianist Helena Basilova surrounded by 800 candles, alongside events by Tools for Action x NDSM, Foam, Nederlands Kamerkoor, Connor Schumacher and many more. In addition, ADE calls upon artists and entrepreneurs for its collaborative projects with Villa Buitenlust and Music Moves.

Music Moves aims to make the dance floor accessible for everyone and offers a free traineeship program to organise an official ADE event for the elderly, special needs children and/or homeless people. Villa Buitenlust offers another invitation to participate through a creative residency to develop and present new works.
