With less than 50 days to go till Amsterdam Dance Event 2019 officially begins it's high time we started digging into what's on offer at this year's festivities.
There are more artists, shows, workshops, and talks than you could possibly get to, so doing a little research into what you want to see and do is a must.
We started things off last week with the Top 5 Unique Events at ADE 2019, now it's time to turn our attention to our favourite warehouse parties at this year's festivities.
Richie Hawtin CLOSE & Modeselektor Live
Lineup: Richie Hawtin CLOSE, Modeselektor, SOPHIE
An iconic DJ in one of the city's most renowned industrial venues, what more could you ask for? Richie Hawtin's CLOSE show uses cameras to bring the audience right up into the live creation of music. Add in Monkeytown Records stalwarts Modeselektor playing a live set and you've got a pretty killer night.
When & Where: 16 October, NDSM Scheepsbouwloods
Lineup: Peggy Gou, Ben UFO, Carista, Caim, Circle Of Live, Jaime Frias, Martin Kling, Operating Modus
For those who either want to start their day off with a rave or keep the party going well into the morning and afternoon, the famed venue RADION is bringing their Breakfast Club series back to ADE for the fourth year in a row. Running from 07:00 - 18:00, the first of two days has an absolutely stacked lineup so make sure to set your alarms for this one.
When & Where: 19 October, RADION
Paradise x Loveland
Lineup: Jamie Jones, Marco Carola, Alan Fitzpatrick, Richy Ahmed, wAFF, Silvie Loto
Jamie Jones' Paradise label is an absolute staple at ADE. Teaming up with legendary local dance promoter Loveland and taking on the Warehouse Houthavens this year, it's not difficult to know what to expect: nothing short of huge party beats and a bumpin' dance floor.
When & Where: 18 October, Warehouse Houthavens
DGTL - Orbital [live], Floating Points [live], Âme [DJ set] and more
Lineup: Orbital [live], Floating Points [live], Âme [DJ set], Antal, Job Jobse, Kamma, Mr.Scruff, Motor City Drum Ensemble, Paula Tape
DGTL's Friday night offering is up there with the best lineups at ADE 2019. Not only is each DJ supremely talented in a live setting, but the bill also covers a far amount of sonic ground, ranging all the way from funk and disco to acid and techno.
When & Where: 18 October, NDSM Scheepsbouwloods
Awakenings x Drumcode
Lineup: Adam Beyer, Bart Skils, Boxia, Enrico Sangiuliano, Layton Giordani, Maceo Plex, Monika Kruse
Probably the most illustrious venue in Amsterdam, Awakenings' home is a massive converted gasometer. Gashouder is an imposing space, featuring top of the line lighting and stage production, and big enough for pyrotechnics. Teaming up with Adam Beyer's Drumcode label, expect appropriately booming beats and darker sounds.
When & Where: 17 October, Gashouder
