After months of speculation, global festival behemoth DGTL (more about DGTL) has confirmed that their massive Amsterdam Dance Event ADE 2021 event will take place on October 14th, 15th, and 16th as planned. The lineup has been revealed as well.

20,000 music fans will flock to the festival’s traditional home at the NDSM Docklands in the heart of Amsterdam over three days and four events – including, for the first time, a DGTL ADE daytime event – to once again come together under the bass and reaffirm their passion for electronic music.

The organizers kicked things off with a bang today, revealing every single name on the lineup, a move that is sure to whet the appetites of ravers across Europe and beyond who have already penciled ADE into their calendars. The bill boasts a wealth of talent, not only from international headliners but also from local legends who have kept the Dutch music scene afloat during this particularly trying year.

UK duo Disclosure, who headline the bill on Thursday night alongside the legendary Honey Dijon, will play a special DJ set, looking to build on their iconic performance from DGTL AMS 2019. Cinthie, Theo Kottis, William Djoko, Luuk van Dijk, Kléo, and Sanja are among the names set to kick things off in style; they are all squaring up to bring a significant dose of house and techno to both stages.

Friday will be a night to remember, as Kölsch joins forces with Sven Väth to take over DGTL with his IPSO label showcase event. The event promises to be a true highlight of the ADE experience for any fan wanting their musical mind blown, with KiNK Live, Gerd Janson, Colyn, Jimi Jules, Jonathan Kaspar, Nicky Elisabeth, and LEIA performing alongside.

For the first time in the brand’s history, DGTL will host an ADE daytime event on Saturday, with headliners Dixon, The Blessed Madonna, Jon Hopkins, Danilo Plessow (MCDE), Jayda G, David Vunk, paramida, Philou Louzolo, Suze Ijó, and Fafi Abel Nour, making it feel like a festival within a festival. DGTL attendees can indulge their love of dark and dirty techno on Saturday night, when the hardest of all four line-ups drops to cap off DGTL ADE in spectacular fashion. Afra, AnD, Dax J, DJ Stingray 313, KI/KI, Kobosil, LVTL, Paula Temple, and SPFDJ & VTSS should provide one of the most in-depth techno experiences ever offered by DGTL.

Fans can register now for early access to DGTL ADE 2021 tickets, which will go on sale to the general public on Tuesday, May 21st at 12:00 CEST here.
