Amsterdam Dance Event and Spotify launch a unique integrated service for ADE 2015

For five days, October 14-18, the city of Amsterdam will only have one thing on its mind: Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE), the world’s biggest electronic dance music event and conference.

With a mind-boggling 2200 artists performing at 350 events and 100 venues, ADE and Spotify have teamed up to launch a new integrated service that will give visitors to the festival the best of everything that ADE has to offer. By analysing user’s Spotify listening habits, the new functions will make it easier than ever for visitors to navigate through the festival’s extensive programme, and can be accessed via the user’s Spotify account, on desktop, mobile devices or the new ADE app.

The new ADE app is available for IOS and Android and offers a host of exciting new possibilities. The app will analyse user’s listening history to provide information on when and where their favourite artists are playing during ADE, as well as suggestions for other parts of the programme based on user preferences.

The app also includes:

  • The entire ADE Festival, Playground and Conference programme
  • A guide to every Festival, Playground and Conference location
  • Profiles of every artist and speaker in the ADE 2015 line-up
  • News updates, exclusive access to social media functions and tips on how to Celebrate Safe
  • Personalized playlists
  • A ‘discover’ function to explore the extensive ADE playlist
  • A ‘recommend’ function that helps users discover new artists during ADE
