Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE) is an all-encompassing platform for electronic music, combining as it does a festival, conferences and a cultural playground that extends across the city for five days. ADE features more than 1000 events in 200 venues, attracts in the region of 400,000 visitors and includes live performances from more than 2500 artists. The festival is supplemented by talks, hardware presentations, exhibitions, promotions and interactive events. It would be hard to conceive of a more important event in the global electronic dance music calendar.
ADE once again partnered with Pioneer Pro-Audio, who supplied sound systems for a number of official event venues, including the ADE Zen Space, an oasis in which visitors to the event can unwind, relax and gather their thoughts. Located in the 600-year-old Waalse Kerk church, Zen Space featured concerts, performances, talks and meditation sessions, requiring a flexible and powerful premium-quality audio solution. Here and across multiple spaces at Brakkeground, De La Mar Theatre, Audio Compagnie Theatre and more, Pioneer Pro Audio supplied speakers from its XPRS and XY-Series to cover a wide range of applications. The XPRS range offers a highly flexible, quick set-up plug and play option, whilst in environments where more control and power is required, XY-Series was deployed. Leading event suppliers AVL Rent of Amsterdam installed all the systems.
Mark Grotefeld, General Manager, Marketing, at Pioneer Pro Audio comments: “High quality, reliable audio across the board is absolutely essential for an event of this type and scale and we’re pleased that Pioneer Pro Audio is returning to continue our excellent working relationship with ADE. ”
