Considering the widespread success of Armada Music’s ‘Armada Invites’ events and its in-demand livestreams, it only seems logical for the event to re-stake its claim during Amsterdam Dance Event after last year’s three-day ADE marathon. Now, ‘Armada Invites’ sets out to hit the world’s biggest dance music conference again with three phenomenal line-ups (Trance, House and EDM/Progressive and performers of equal stature (e.g. Andrew Rayel, Kevin Saunderson, Sultan + Shepard) on Thursday, October 19th, Friday, October 20thand Saturday, October 21st. All individual DJ sets will be streamed live on a custom landing page (ade.armadamusic.com) as well as on Armada Music’s Facebook page and YouTube channel.
The first of three special, ADE-flavored editions of ‘Armada Invites’, ‘Armada Invites: ASOT 836’ coincides with a special episode of A State Of Trance, Armin van Buuren’s radio show. On Thursday, October 19th, Armin van Buuren goes on a 14-hour A State Of Trance spree alongside dozens of special guests, with many of them (including Alpha 9, Andrew Rayel, Heatbeat, Jorn van Deynhoven and Mark Sixma) hitting the club between 17.00 and 22.00. After 22.00, the party continues at AFAS Live with the ‘A State Of Trance: ADE Special’.
One day later, on Friday, October 20th, Armada Music’s in-house club transforms into a groove-packed House music hideout. Boasting a line-up of legends and crowd favorites such as Danny Howard (BBC Radio 1), Erick Morillo,Junior Sanchez, Kevin Saunderson b2b Dantiez, Roger Sanchez, Todd Terry and more (including thirteen-year-old rising star Federico Gardenghi), this second day of this year’s ‘Armada Invites: ADE Special’ is a must-attend for whomever can’t get enough of the sought-after underground flavor.
On the third day, the floor-filling grooves of House’s finest make way for the EDM/Progressive part of the Armada Music rotunda. With top-tier names such as Arty, Julian Jordan, Lost Frequencies, Sultan + Shepard, Thomas Gold and a special guest lacing up the line-up on Saturday, October 21st, the promise of three days of sonic madness is sure to be fulfilled.
