Amsterdam Dance Event 2016 is now only a month away, and we couldn’t be more excited! Every year the dance music world unites in October for 5 days of festivities, and panels to celebrate dance music, and showcase the hottest talents of today and tomorrow. This will be the fourth year we attend, and if you’ve never been, and you’d like to go, don’t think twice, do it!
We’re personally getting situated with who to see, what to do, and where to go, but we trust the music and city of Amsterdam will take good care of us. With names like Craig David, Oliver Heldens on the first night October to set it off, and Sam Feldt, Yellow Claw, Chainsmokers, Tiesto, Netsky, and Martin Solveig to name a few, the event already sounds like a success. We’ll have your itinerary all sorted in the weeks leading up to it, and expect plenty of Facebook live interviews while we’re out there!
