The Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE) is the gateway to the international electronic music scene. As Europe’s leading electronic music conference and the world’s biggest club festival, it’s the perfect time and place to meet up with international music minds, get introduced to an international audience and connect with new music, new trends and new people.

This year’s Amsterdam Dance Event runs from Wednesday the 17th till Sunday the 21st of October. If you’re in the possession of a fancy all-access wristband, we’ve made a short list for you of the best parties to generate a massive hangover that will last you all week. If you don’t have an all-access ticket, we’ve added some kick-ass alternatives to the sold out events. Here’s our recommendations for Wednesday:

Dekmantel ADE – Paramount Artists @ MC Theater

“The Dekmantel Collective is made up of a group like minded friends who all share the same love for quality music. Founded in 2007, the initial target was to present different music in the capital city’s night-life, which was -at the time- dominated by too much of the same. While the first parties took place at various small venues, Dekmantel’s popularity soon grew and currently regular nights are held in Amsterdam hot-spots such as Paradiso, Studio 80 and Trouw. Nowadays, they’ve built a new residency for themselves at the MC Theater in Westerpark. They kick-off ADE with a collaboration with the Paramount artists Carl Craig presents 69 (live), Agoria, Nina Kraviz, Paul Woolford, Francesco, Tristano (live), Stacey Pullen, Radio Slave, Trus’me, Jan van Kampen, Jasper Wolff and Maarten Mittendorff on Wednesday.
