The Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE) held its 21st edition back in October, drawing the cream of the dance music industry to the Dutch capital with an estimated 375,000 visitors, as well as roughly 1,000 parties across more than 140 venues. The conference is a bucket-list entry for any serious dance fan, and it can be relived via the PERSPECTIVE documentary that’s just been released, which you can view above.
Directed by Dutch filmmaker Geschikte Gasten, the documentary covers the breadth of the conference through the eyes of Octave One, Eats Everything, KiNK, Ellen Allien, and a posse of other professionals from across the dance industry.
One of our writers was present to capture this year’s conference, describing it as “a huge celebration of our culture” and writing that “there was a sense that this year was more pivotal than those before it,” with the focus shifting to “the power of a united dance community.”
