With the Amsterdam Dance Event rapidly approaching, attendees have a wealth of top notch events available at the fingers tips. Next week, the majority of the dance music industry will congregate in Amsterdam for a week of networking, conferences, and shows. While it’s an intimidating lineup of parties, there is certainly something for everyone; all forms of electronic music will be fully represented in one of dance music’s most important cities.
We are ecstatic to announce our partnership with Feijoa as the official media partner of their ADE 2019 programming. Bar Feijoa is a venue the WhenWeDip team knows very well from previous editions of ADE! On a corner of the Vijzelstraat, near the Pathé cinema, Feijoa is right in the thick of all the ADE happenings. With a focus on eclectic cocktails, the intimate venue features lots of antique lamps and black and white photos on the walls, creating a cozy vibe for a party. With free entrance all week, it will be a stellar place to pop your head in and catch some of the most unique acts and showcases in town.
Feijoa’s ADE kicks off with a bang on Wednesday night (16th) as the rising label Plaisirs Sonores hosts their first European showcase. Label heads Hicky & Kalo (Montreal) have collected an outrageous lineup – the likes of Soul Button, Budakid, Darin Epsilon, Rauschhaus , and many more will carry us through a melodic and progressive-centric evening.

Next on the docket is Thursday night’s We Are E showcase. The hometown booking and management agency works with some of Europe’s most established acts, and they certainly know how to organize a proper party. They’ve been a stalwart of the Feijoa ADE for the last 3 years, and have become a must visit for many of the artists attending the festival. This year, they bring Tunnelvisions, Unders, Bas Dobbelaer, and Some Chemistry. Many of these names have been of the tip of everyone’s tongue of late, with Tunnvisions especially surging with some killer releases over the last couple months.
