Save some rave, the after hours parties for ADE week are just as good as the main events - we select our five best picks for your ADE hit list.
VBX have obtained supreme status in the trendy minimal party world, and it’s fully deserved. BRET, which incidentally appears to be hosting the hottest after parties for ADE all week long, will welcome VBX twice. The 12 hour after party from 6am-6pm on Saturday morning piqued our interest specifically. SIT, Jan Kreuger and Spokenn (Ferro) are among the stripped back collective that have been invited to the sell out show. If you couldn’t get a ticket, check out Thursdays VBX party at BRET with Vera and Francesco Del Garda. Musically strict business.
When and where: VBX at BRET, Orlyplein 76, 1043 DP. For more info click here.
There’s plenty going on at Radion for ADE but in terms of after parties, this has casually tipped the scales. From 7am until Saturday morning until 7pm that night, you can make yourself at home for a rather long shift at one of the city's best new venues.
The diverse site, which brags a 24 hour license also serves as a cultural hotspot hosting yoga classes and coffee fiends during the week, so there’s plenty to discover when running an errand away from the dancefloor. Blawan (who’s doing a special BFC set), Peggy Gou and Perlon Queen Margaret Dygas are among a list of usual suspects providing the music you’d expect for an intimate afterhours session on a Saturday morning.
When and Where: October 21. Breakfast Club at Radion, Louwesweg 1 ,1066 EA For more info click here.
If you’re still firing on four cylinders on Saturday morning, why not nip down Amsterdam's most famous club hatch to Shelter and let Speedy J, Clouds and AnD put you in your place? It’s not often people have the guts to face slamming techno after a full night of partying, but if it’s going to happen anywhere, it’s Amsterdam. From 9am til 7pm, the trio will be steering one of the city’s hottest new club into all out chaos alongside Sandrien and Juan Sanchez.
Electric Deluxe at Shelter, Overhoeksplein 3, 1031KS For more info click here.
After last year's sell out, the sizeable Sugarfactory will be taken over by a Dailycid label night to bring what looks like the largest after party line up of ADE 2017.
House, house, house will be the order of the day and the party starts at 6am on Friday morning, meaning ravers can head to the venue and get started slightly earlier than the majority of other after parties. Label Boss, London based Dj WiLD, has invited Nima Gorji, Cinthie and Leo Pol, who will be doing a live performance, to celebrate til 2pm. The Happily ever After concept has had four successful years at ADE, we are tipping the fifth to be a short but sweet party.
ADE Afterhours at Sugarfactory, Lijnbaansgracht 238; 1017 Binnenstad. For more info click here.
Would ADE be over without a super long party running into the next week? BRET think not. This interesting Desolat and Slapfunk head to head is tagged onto the tail end of ADE week from Monday morning into Tuesday afternoon. Even more interestingly the line up has been kept under wraps and tickets are only available on the door. More importantly, whose going to be still standing from either crew?
When and where: October 23. Desolat x Slapfunk at BRET, Orlyplein 76, 1043 DP. For more info click here.
