Dutch promoter Audio Obscura have truly outdone themselves for this year’s ADE party. Known for curating unique experiences at special locations, this October the crew take on a three-day billing you won’t want to miss. The Bijlmerbajes prison is one of the most famous jails in the Netherlands. Opening in 1978, the complex was designed as a humane housing for criminals. Closed for prisoners in 2016, the complex is undergoing a permanent closure which will seal the location for good. Before that, Audio Obscura will host a slew of techno legends over the course of 72 hours.
Kicking off the series of events on Thursday is Seth Troxler joined by the iconic Honey Dijon. Together they deliver the spirit of Detroit and Chicago with more than a dash of New York flair. From the earliest days of disco and house, through to the present day. The Friday night will be hosted by none other than Speedy J’s Electric Deluxe label in collaboration with Berlin’s Dystopian. Joining Speedy J on the line-up are Rødhåd, Clouds and Jon Hester.
Nina Kraviz brings her трип label to the final night at The Prison, for an unmissable night of twisted music for open minds. The label is known for bringing the spirit of the rave to unusual locations – from remote caves to UFO towers, space museums and pre-historic craters. Performing alongside Kraviz will be members of the трип family drawn from the Netherlands, Russia and Iceland.
