Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE) invites fans and professionals to get close to the enigmatic Claptone as the first confirmed conference speaker for this year’s ADE Pro. To celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the hit single “No Eyes,” ADE Pro will host the first-ever live interview and Q&A with Claptone, offering an in-depth look into the meteoric rise of the artist behind the golden mask.

The announcement follows the recent news of a fourth day being added to the ADE Pro Conference program. In addition to the existing three-day offering, professionals are now able to attend keynotes, discussions and networking sessions on ADE Saturday as well.

Get Closer to Claptone
The conference event is set to explore Claptone’s career in a fully transformed space that reflects the artist’s enigmatic persona. Attendees will gain insights into the milestones and defining moments that have shaped Claptone’s success, through exclusive behind-the-scenes footage, live and archive shots, and highlights of the artist’s most notable achievements.

Claptone’s rise to fame has solidified his position as a leading force in the music scene. This event presents the opportunity to explore the impact of anonymity and storytelling in electronic music and to gain a deeper understanding of the artist himself.
