DGTL announce ADE plans
After the huge success of their recent festival outing in Amsterdam, DGTL can now unveil their plans for ADE this October, which encompass once again three great parties that are sure to be some of the best of the whole week.
DGTL will host three parties – the first is October 16th and will be a Life and Death special with co boss DJ Tennis, main label act Tale of Us, plus DJ Harvey, Mind Against, Tobias – Live, Somne and Job Jobse. Then the night after it’s a special Paradise showcase fresh from DC10 with Jamie Jones, Magda, Deetron, Richy Ahmed, wAFF, Route 94, and more. Then finally October 18th sees Kompakt come to town with Gui Boratto, boss Michael Mayer, Kolsch ft. Troels Abrahamsen, Blond:ish, Superpitcher and Rebolledo,
The venue for all this fun will be a big raw warehouse at Scheepsbouwloods, a former ship wharf, located at the docklands in Amsterdam Noord. It’s 10 minutes by ferry from Amsterdam Central Station and is most certainly one of the finest venues in the city. DGTL focus on sustainability, innovative technology and quality music (as you can see by their movie here – vimeo.com/99615491), and so at all these events you should expect innovative light shows and more besides.
