ADE 2018 is expected to bring some 400,000 visitors to Amsterdam
The dates were announced today for the 23th edition of Amsterdam Dance Event. ADE 2018 will take place on 17-21 October, though beyond that details are very patchy... October's still quite a long way off, after all!
What we can tell you is that this year's country focus will be on South Korea, with ADE director Richard Zijlma stating: "The South Korean music scene is growing rapidly, thanks to technological innovation and smart crossovers. During ADE we will focus on the very best the country has to offer across a wide range of festival and conference events."
On a similar note, there will also be some new country-focused 'pavilions' at the conference. "The addition of pavilions creates extra possibilities to meet and network for music industry professionals," says Zijlma, "but also provides a means to show the innovative power of individual territories in front of an international audience."
We'll bring you more details of ADE 2018 when we have them - in the meantime, keep an eye on their website.
