Live Electronic music takes centre stage at ADE once again

House | Tuesday 24th September 2019 | Becky

The fact that ADE has now grown to welcome thousands of industry heads from all over the world is a testament to how popular this electronic music conference has become. This year will prove no different, as, for the fourth year in a row, live music will take centre stage once again. 


Paradiso and Melkweg join forces once again for ADE LIVE: a two-day festival where fans and professionals alike honour the newest electronic live-acts as well as the household names. ADE LIVE will take place on Wednesday the 16th at Paradiso and Thursday the 17th of October at Melkweg.


In just a few years ADE LIVE has grown into a vital part of Amsterdam Dance Event. In previous editions it featured behemoths like Fatima Yamaha, Hercules & Love Affair and Roísín Murphy next to upcoming talent as Marie Davidson & Phlake who have now gone onto to be successful in their own right, showing that electronic live music deserves a prominent spot on the ADE menu.



This year it’s up to the compelling grandmaster of electronica Apparat to lead the festival. And with surprises like the Belgian left-field pop singer Charlotte Adigéry or the laidback vibes of Catching Flies, there’s plenty to discover again! The full line-up is listed below:


Wednesday October 16th | Paradiso


Yellow Days

Larry Gus






Thursday October 17th | Melkweg




De Sluwe Vos live

Matias Aguayo

Catching Flies

Charlotte Adigéry



Tickets for both nights are available through the ADE site. Just like last year there is a two-day festival ticket which grants access to the full ADE LIVE program.


Ticket sales start Friday August 2nd, 10.00 am.

Tickets Wednesday October 16th in Paradiso: € 25

Tickets Thursday October 17th in Melkweg € 28
