ADE is one of the larger festival giants, but you may never have heard of it if you are not an electronic music fan. For five days and every year in October, the entire dance music industry descends to the music stages, conference rooms, bars and streets of Amsterdam and brings along showcases, panels, tech demonstrations and festivals. Th Amsterdam Music Festival is probably the largest of its kind and recommended to add on your bucket list.1212

What's the weather like?

In October it can be windy, rainy and pretty chilly. The last year (2018) it was still pretty warm and sunny, but this was exceptional and might be due to climate change. Most Amsterdam dance events take place in cold and grey weather. So the perfect weather to be inside a club or in bed with a hangover without feeling guilty.

Where to stay?
If you would like to stay in Amsterdam during the Dance event we recommend to stay in the city center so you are close to all the action. If you have budget we definitely recommend the Pulitzer hotel in Amsterdam. This hotel is fantastic and the location is great right in the city center. The building is absolutely gorgeous and it has a delicious restaurant. When we stayed there the room was immaculate and we would definitely come back. This hotel receives an average rating of 9.0 on and you can book it here.
