ELECTRIC FESTIVAL & ADE GLOBAL SESSIONS ARUBA 2015
Aruba welcomes the third edition of the Electric Festival, featuring Afrojack’s first appearance on the island, joined by NERVO, Loco Dice, Paco Osuna, and Nutzbeatz. From Thursday, September 3 to Sunday, September 6, 2015, Electric Festival will feature international top DJs, as well as ADE Global Sessions. Electric Festival is organized by twins and entrepreneurs Maurice and Karim Neme in conjunction with the Aruba Tourism Authority and Amsterdam Dance Event.
The first two editions of Electric Festival were attended by more than 15,000 people in both 2013 and 2014. With artists and speakers such as Chus & Ceballos, Dave Clarke, DJ Chuckie, Erick Morillo, Fellow, Knife Party, Lil Jon, Loco Dice, Maarten Vorwerk, Mike Henderson (ENDO), Nicole Moudaber, No Eat No Sleep, Partai, REVOLT TV, Slash, Stacey Pullen and many others. Visitors in previous years not only came from neighboring ABC Islands (Aruba, Bonaire, and Curaçao), but a strong contingent of fans from the U.S., Venezuela, and Europe also emerged. With the addition of prominent new speakers and program items, Amsterdam Dance Event’s global touring platform ADE Global Sessions is also shaping its Aruba line-up for this year. During ADE Global Sessions Aruba there will be a host of exclusive industry meetings, strategy sessions, top notch Q&A’s, pop-up parties and more alongside Electric Festival.
This year’s program of ADE Global Sessions Aruba focuses on the exploding electronic dance music market in the Latin American and Caribbean region. Exclusive business gatherings include an interactive series of powerful talks on the rise of electronic music festivals in the region with Leizer Guss (OCESA/EDC Mexico), Rodrigo Frutos (The Bullitt Agency) and Edo van Duijn (SFX South America) and ‘Industry Inside: Spot on Latin America’, with Brandon Bakshi (BMI) talking to Luis Estrada (Aftercluv Dancelab/Universal Music Latin Entertainment) about industry trends, sounds, possibilities and future visions for electronic dance music in and from the Latin American region.
As the cultural intersection of North and South America, Aruba is uniquely positioned to host the most global dance music festival in the Caribbean. Electric Festival and Aruba have evolved into a hub for the growing international electronic dance music community. The Aruba Tourism Authority is the main sponsor of the event, with the belief that this event will flourish into an internationally renowned festival and, in the process, find a stream of new visitors to Aruba.
