The Netherlands’ government recently announced the country was allowed to return to large-scale events after continually easing COVID-19 restrictions, and as a result, planning for Amsterdam Dance Event is underway ahead of the October 2021 event. Organizers have announced the first set of speakers for the ADE Pro conference, and Don Diablo, deadmau5 alongside his business partner Dean Wilson, and Mixcloud CEO and co-founder Nico Perez are all slated to appear. They will be joined by IMPALA chair Helen Smith, musical duo Zaena x Jason Maek, and AR/VR expert Cortney Harding.
Topics expected to be covered by the speakers include a new way to generate income for artists through blockchain and NFTs, sustainability initiatives, and ways for artists to become more profitable through implementing better business practices. Lastly, speakers will discuss streaming reforms in regards to artist profits.
ADE is set to return to a live, in-person environment at Felix Meritis for its 25th edition from October 13 – 17. For those looking to attend, ADE Pro Passes are now on sale here.
