ADE features some action packed in-stores at a range of the cities best record shops - set a few hours aside and drop in to the following.
The most respected record shop and label in Amsterdam will be opening it’s welcoming space for a full five days over ADE to host various in-stores. Starting tonight with Nina Kraviz’s трип gathering, expect a packed out shop full of music heads for the majority of ADE. People from all over the world and locals will be congregating for the showcases throughout the week.

For five years, Kompakt have been making the annual pilgrimage from their legendary store in Cologne over to ADE to host free pop up in stores, which have gone down with locals as the best in Amsterdam. For three days, the Kompakt crew will be eating, drinking and dancing at the Oz space. Become a temporary member of the Kompakt ‘club’ in order to come and go as you please. Cash only.
Oz, Oudezijds Achterburgwal 66, 1012 DP For more info click here.
Every day over ADE, ultimate ADE pop up Urbanears Hideout, will team up with legendary Rotterdam mainstay Clone Records to present shelves stacked with the most diverse and underground music, which has been hand selected by the Clone crew.
This may be more of a professional vinyl hunters hang rather than a night riot, due to opening 12-4 each day. The ideal spot for a beer and a casual dig.

Techno heavies Drumcode choose a rather unlikely venue partner for their ADE in-store; quaint book publishing agency Mary Go Wild. The basement here, however, flips the vibe entirely.
There will a back stock of Drumcode vinyl, merchandise and special edition bits up for grabs as the rave continues in the basement of Mary Go Wild.
You can expect a range of familiar faces to drop in and play. DJs are announced one hour before.

InDeep’n’Dance will be hosting parties throughout ADE much like their fellow record shops. Orange Recordings regulars will be pulling out their freshest wax on this date in particular as very special guest, New Yorker and Berghain regular Boris is in town. Based in Jordaan and open since 1999, InDeep’n’Dance is run by local legend DJ Dexon and is one of the first and longest running record stores in Amsterdam. We expect something special from Boris to show his appreciation for it.
