The organizers of Amsterdam Dance Event are taking its arts and culture initiative to the next level.

Following last year's successful debut, ADE's Arts and Culture program is set to return with a series of experiential crossover activations. The sheer amount of new residencies and projects only serves to reinforce the summit as the world’s most influential hub for electronic music enthusiasts. 

Just a year after introducing an expansion, the leading dance music conference is introducing its very first artist residencies. Among the first to be announced is Tamara Shogaolu, an award-winning director who will showcase her transformation of the Westerkerk church into a Panama rainforest. Another is contemporary artist Nick Verstand, whose "Within Without II" audiovisual performance will show at Carré Theater on opening night.
