It’s finally time for Amsterdam Dance Event 2023! Soon the famous yellow and black ADE signs will start popping up throughout the whole city of Amsterdam, and that’s how you know ADE is only days away! An amazing way to start ADE is by exploring our wonderful city. Go shopping in the Kalverstraat, or the more high-end PCHooftstraat and grab a bite of food while walking around. Some of the best food in Amsterdam is served from a food truck or a tiny hidden restaurant.
Start looking around for places you’ll want to go to a party in the evening and where all the people are heading. Amsterdam is always full of such a diverse group of people, and the Amsterdam Dance Event unites them. No matter who you are or where you’re from as long as you’re here to enjoy yourself, you are welcome and celebrated everywhere!
We’re planning on kicking off the week with Oliver Heldens in the Melkweg right in the centre of Amsterdam. The Melkweg is an amazing location with multiple stages and a fantastic atmosphere. I’m also looking forward to what the Melkweg has to offer this year for new and young, upcoming talent. The next obvious option for us is the Leidseplein with Bacardi X Filing Pieces. This was one of our favourite locations last year because of the intimate vibe and range of different DJs performing.
The Leidseplein is a hotspot for the best clubs and bars but also has a huge range of different types of restaurants. Any cuisine you fancy, you’ll be able to find here! My personal, very Dutch, favourite place to get a snack is the Febo, the only place you’ll probably ever see where you get food out of a wall! Trust me, you will love it. On Friday we’re planning to definitely go to Martin Garrix. We’re really excited to see this world-famous Dutch DJ and we don’t want to miss his amazing show! On the last day, we’ll visit Mystic Garden in Havenpark. As well as the wide range of music we are really curious to see the mystical stages and decoration. All in all, hugely excited to be part of ADE 2023!!!
