Relaxation or not, the organization of the Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE) has concerns. They are anxious about next month’s edition. Can the event be held? And if so, what format? Directors Jan-Willem van de Ven, Meindert Kennis announced this during the corona press conference.
Here’s a preview of what we can expect at tonight’s press conference.
“ADE consists of many cross-cultural festivals, clubs, night bars and events. Two years ago, it was impossible to manage this policy due to the sheer volume of supply at different locations. Van de Venis and Kennis said that the government had pulled the plug on the event last year two weeks before ADE. They also fear the same situation this year. eventThe following is the information. Amsterdam Dance Event will be held from October 13th.
The organization is still waiting to hear which measures the outgoing Prime Minister Mark Rutte or Hugo de Jonge, outgoing Healthcare minister, will announce on this evening. “But, we will still unravel the most unlikely incomprehensible measures tonight to determine the potential ADE possibilities next month.
Yesterday, it was announced that multi-day festivals will be allowed to resume on September 25th. It comes with a few conditions. One example is a 75 percent maximum capacity. Ruben Brouwer, the director of concert organizer MOJO, told in On 1 that De Jonge had asked to “no longer organize dance events”.
These statements are not in line with Van de Ven or Kennis. “This is yet another proof for us of the contempt that this cabinet has for the electronic music sector. To score huge popularity points in June to increase vaccine willingness, and now to kill it in the back room. This cabinet then ignores two of the biggest protests over the past 15 years. As far as we are concerned, total disregard for the largest cultural export product of the Netherlands with this private ‘deal tactic’ by the government without valid arguments or legal grounds.”
