While the in-person Amsterdam Dance Event festivities are still a full six months away, ADE is launching an upcoming livestream event to tide the music industry over in the meantime.
This week, ADE In Conversation will feature a discussion around hosting events in a post-pandemic world as well as the opportunities for artists within the rapidly flourishing NFT space.
Who better to explain the value of backing NFT technology than 3LAU, a crypto-power player who recently landed on Coin Telegraph's Top 100 Notable People In Blockchain. He is joined by famed techno producer Richie Hawtin, who recently celebrated 303 Day with a series of NFTs honoring his Plastikman alias, and digital artist Mat Dryhurst.
The second panel consists of several high-profile event organizers sharing their insights on timelines and strategies for reopening and throwing events in a post-pandemic environment. Creative Artists Agency’s Head of Electronic Maria May, Elrow's Juan Arnau Jr., Fieldlab Events' Pieter Lubberts, and Swallow Events' Grego O'Halloran are set to drive that conversation.
