As the return of the world's largest electronic music conference nears, its organizers have poured gasoline on the hype.

Amsterdam Dance Event today revealed the lineup for ADE Lab, its slate of programming that offers a more accessible alternative to the industry professional-oriented ADE Pro business conference. The program is vast, boasting a myriad of workshops, think tanks and panels exploring dance music culture.

ADE is beloved for its rare, one-of-a-kind electronic music experiences. And after the scourge of COVID-19, which threw a wrench into the conference's last two iterations, organizers are now going bigger than ever.

Holders of the ADE Lab Pass will be able to visit Martin Garrix's STMPD Studios, where they'll learn about mixing spatial sound in Dolby Atmos. Electronic music producers can also submit demos and get custom feedback from Nicky Romero.
