With plans to return in full force this fall, the organizers of the iconic Amsterdam Dance Event have launched a new Arts & Culture program for the five-day summit.

Scheduled for October 13-17, the conference will now feature a series of exhibitions, special performances, art installations, documentaries, and more to explore the nexus between clubs and culture.

According to a press release issued to announce the program, the first confirmed Arts & Culture collabs include an artist residency showcase by Nxt Museum and ADE on the summit's opening night, a series of "spiritual healing experiences for ravers" by award-winning director and designer Nelly Ben Hayoun, and an intimate performance by pianist Helena Basilova.

Other events to take place include ones hosted by Tools for Action x NDSM, Foam, Nederlands Kamerkoor, and Connor Schumacher, among others.
