Socialize is a UK based night that came about after music obsessed Socialize head honcho MatieuJ decided to get involved in the scene and bring something new and exciting to his home town, Colchester, Essex. Now in the 4th year, these nights have seen local DJs play alongside Bobby & Steve (Groove Oddessy) and too many others to name. They have taken their particular style of fun laden, multiple genre, dance driven nights to the Ministry of Sound in London and various other venues across the south of England. After many late nights ‘Socializing’ with fellow DJ Andy le Candy, it was decided that the time was right to bring the Socialize nights to mainland Europe The Socialize family now looks forward to bringing their unique way of Socializing to ADE inviting fellow house heads to party with them and True House LA at the Three Sisters Pub, for an amazing night of music and ADE madness!!!

First and foremost, LIVING is and always will be about the music. However, in this day and age, with all of the world’s challenges, they are ultimately in the pursuit of positivity and encouraging others to be LIVING their best lives, through the music! LIVING isn’t just a party, but rather an experience. They have always been about the small details, the vibes and straight up quality music. Everything from the venue it’s thrown in, the hospitality, the production aesthetic (sound, lighting and decor), music programming, and most importantly is the great vibe that the crowd brings along. All of theses elements are key to creating a memorable experience. Ultimately they want to convey a meaningful message to people that inspires them, so they can elevate themselves. Whatever the reason, everyone that walks through that door is there to feel something or to escape; we’re here to give it to them. Let’s THRIVE & SURVIVE!

20:00 – 05:00
Taets | Hemkade 16, Amsterdam

komm schon Alter can’t be celebrated at the location they had first envisioned. For nearly two years they prepared for this weekender to happen.

They were heartbroken, but above all, frightened to disappoint you.
So, they’ve come up with a solution better than they had ever hoped for. They managed to book an alternative friday night at Taets, a art events venue with warehouse stage settings. This sadly also means they couldn’t keep their Saturday gig. However, on Friday the 19th of October, they offer a warm welcome to all of you on bóth Friday and Saturday Alters!

All ksA ADE tickets are valid for entering on Friday: you can enter with Friday as well as weekender tickets. Do you have a Saturday ticket and can’t make it on Friday, or do you have a weekend ticket? Please check your e-mail for instructions and they will be taken care off. All the weekender artists will play on this Friday.

Important: Location changed to Taets Art and Event Park

This event is only for 24 year-olds and up!
