In honor of the return of Amsterdam Dance Event, organizers have unveiled a new mini-documentary inspired by the spirit of the music that fuels the influential gathering.

Titled Dance Is a Rave-olution, the documentary is fleshed out through footage of the 2021 edition of the music conference and its many parties. Emphasizing freedom of expression, the short film features appearances from Honey Dijon, Octo Octa, Hyperaktivist, Colin Benders, Luke Slater and more. 

Through a combination of show footage and voiceover storytelling, the beauty of club culture is explored by the meaningful connections and unforgettable memories it engenders. This is done via a variety of different viewpoints, but all come to the same conclusion: these moments are powerful and have a monumental effect on those who experience raving.

You can watch Dance is a Rave-olution, which was directed by Anna Bogomolova, below.
