After last year’s successful debut, ADE Arts & Culture returns with a series of artistic crossover projects for five days and nights during Amsterdam Dance Event 2022. Among the first confirmed highlights are Tamara Shogaolu’s transformation of the Westerkerk church, a journey through light and sound by Nick Verstand, plus artist-residencies in NXT Museum and in Villa Buitenlust.
Through a variety of creative expressions, which include live performances, immersive experiences, a social impact programme and more, ADE Arts & Culture aims to explore the artistic edges of electronic music. The programme lets enthusiasts explore a wide range of electronic music experiences that reflect the best and most creative projects on the border between club culture and art.
First confirmed shows and projects
The first confirmed highlights include Tamara Shogaolu’s transformation of the Westerkerk church into the serene rainforest of Panama for those in need of a break from the city’s energy, plus Nick Verstand’s Within Without II at Carré Theater on ADE’s opening night, alongside visual artist Vincent Rang and violinists 3VIOLAS’ live show ARBOR in the Zuiderkerk church.
Furthermore, ADE teams up with Villa Buitenlust and NXT Museum for two artist residencies. Villa Buitenlust collaborates with community-based event collective Orphic to host a series of talks and live podcasting sessions with platform Bakkie Bakkie. In addition, ADE and NXT Museum call upon artists to collaborate on new work and showcase it on the innovative NXT Stage to conclude the residency.
Organise your own piece of ADE
Music Moves and Amsterdam Dance Event will offer a traineeship programme leading up to organising your own ADE event in collaboration with social enterprises. Participants will be guided by Music Moves’ team to organise a festival event and contribute to making them more accessible to groups and communities not often found on the dance floor.

Individual ticket sales for ADE Arts & Culture events will be available soon on ADE’s website. The ADE Pro Pass grants full access to the entire programme, in addition to ADE’s conference and festival offering and all other benefits.
