ADE’s Masterclass Program Confirms Carl Cox, Ellen Allien, Oliver Heldens, Nicky Romero, Van Anh, and Others

With just weeks to go until Amsterdam Dance Event 2022, the organization’s newly launched ADE Lab track aimed at the next generation offers a more accessible alternative to the ADE Pro business conference. ADE Lab is the prime education and talent development platform for aspiring producers and professionals.

Through an interactive multi-day program of music talks, masterclasses, demo pitches, and technology showcases, ADE Lab aims to inspire the innovators of the future. The former ADE Sound Lab and ADE University programs merged to become one of ADE’s four core program tracks.

ADE Lab takes place Oct 19 — Oct 22 at Brakke Grond and Amsterdam’s Nes area. More information about ADE Lab can be found here. ADE Tickets are also now available to purchase.

Among the newly revealed program is Carl Cox speaking in-depth about his first album in ten years and his move to live sets, Oliver Heldens on balancing his own name and his alias HI-LO, a live special edition of Scuba’s ‘Not a Diving’ Podcast with Ellen Allien, manipulating sound with deep house pioneer Kerri Chandler and a vinyl DJing workshop with Van Anh. It may also be the last chance to see DJ The Prophet, dubbed the Godfather of Hardstyle on stage, following news that he is retiring.
