The celebrated Dutch nightclub has brought in some heavy hitters for its final Amsterdam Dance Event.
Always an integral part of the program for Amsterdam Dance Event, this year’s parties at Trouw take on special significance given the club’s imminent closure at the end of this year. From 15th to 20th October a mixture of esteemed resident DJ’s and international stars will grace the venue for what is likely the final time.
Running from Wednesday 15th til Sunday 19th October, the club and its secondary De Verdieping space will be open every night. Wednesday and Thursday will see showcases from local labels Clone and Rush Hour added to by an appearance from Hessle Audio, with the likes of Ben UFO, Pangaea, Pearson Sound, Leon Vynehall, Marquis Hawkes, Midland, Ron Trent and Traxx all making the trip to ‘Dam. They will join local selectors such as Dexter, Serge, Cinnaman, Young Marco and San Proper, who are all well versed in the city’s unique style of playing.
The Friday is an all out Techno assault meanwhile, with Darko Esser’s Tripeo alias seeing some action via a live alongside the likes of Berliner Recondite, FXHE’s deep and dubby master Luke Hess, The Bunker’s Mike Servito and more. Resident Advisor take the reins for Saturday night, and the line up is suitably massive. Jon Hopkins, Four Tet and Floating Points keep things ticking over in the main room, whilst there’s guaranteed good vibes downstairs where Move D and Motor City Drum Ensemble take over.
Sunday see’s festivities conclude with an ‘All Night, All Day and All Night Long’ event that looks likely to last well into Monday morning, with a huge range of acts playing. Axel Boman and John Talabot’s collaborative Talaboman project tops the bill, whilst Omar-S, Mano Le Tough, Gerd Janson and Tom Trago are also highlights. If the line up’s haven’t convinced you yet then watch the Slices feature on Trouw below for an idea on what makes it so special.
This announcement follows ADE’s reveal last week of the first wave of acts due to appear at the event, with Mount Kimbie, Rodhad, Steve Rachmad and Henrik Schwarz forming some of the early highlights.
With these announcements very much the tip of the proverbial iceberg as far as ADE goes, you would be very much advised to start booking flights and tickets sooner rather than later – we’ll see you there.
