ADE Hackathon
ADE, DGTL and Young Creators present the first global hackathon for the dance scene.

To stimulate innovation and entrepreneurship in the dance and festival scene, ADE 2016 will see DGTL, Young Creators and ADE joining forces to organize the first ever ADE Hackathon. As the electronic music scene is using data & technology more and more, the three parties acknowledge that it is of importance to discover further opportunities in this domain. At the ADE Hackathon, smart developers, designers and entrepreneurs are asked to think about the challenges that are faced by the dance and festival scene, but also to think about the opportunities that data and technology provide. A group of 100 selected bright minds will be invited to develop smart concepts, new apps and inspiration within a challenging timespan of 24 hours. Example topics include: Enhanced Festival Experience, Safety & Security, Dance & Travel and Festival Logistics. More program information will be announced soon.

The program will soon be finalised, for a complete overview visit:
