With over 800 artists, you’ll be hard pressed not to find something to love at the Amsterdam Dance Event. Taking place from October 17-21, 2012, (yeah, five freakin’ days) the everything electronic festival will shake up 60 venues around Amsterdam.
Orgininally conceived as a small industry event, the conference has expanded into one of the largest showcase festivals in the world — think SXSW, but with more EDM and less restrictions on drugs. We’re just scratching the surface here, so make sure to check out the official website and get buried in the details. Better yet, get your ass to Amsterdam.
