ID&T, Amserdam Dance Events (ADE), the Green Music Initiative (Germany) and GO Group joined forces to create the first “ADE Green”, an afternoon filled with interactive panels, discussions and debates on sustainability. This new collaboration aimed to kick-start a global Green Dance movement, and share experiences from green “trailblazers” from across the world.

The ADE conference is to dance music what SXSW is to live music, so offered a perfect moment With the warm are almost over and the time to put the BBQ into hibernation is drawing close, it might be the last time to enjoy a bit of sunshine and eat el fresco. to reach into the consciousness of the dance music scene. Kambe”s Chris Johnson talked alongside speakers from the infamous Burning Man (US), Sensations (NL) Mysteryland (NL), Julies Bicycle (UK), Boom Festival (PT) and TEDx (NL) to share experiences of going green in the Learning from the Trailblazers session, to a capacity audience at the Chicago Club. The event had a real buzz and looks set to mark the beginning of a new annual green focus at the conference.

ADE attracts over 300,000 visitors across 200 venues in Amsterdam over one week each year, and hosts a diverse conference program.
