ADE 2016: This was My ADE 2016, Friday 21st October

After an exhausting ADE Thursday I decided that Friday 20th October at ADE is going to focus mainly on Felix Meritis and The Dylan despite the fact that ADE Beats which was focusing on urban electronic music like hip hop was taking place with very important speakers and panels. The reason was that Friday schedule at the two main sites was packed with very interesting panels  and discussions that offered many important insights on the future of electronic dance music industry.

Friday night was quite for me as I attempted to get in at Markus Schulz solo show but unfortunately was sold out so I went back early in order to wake up and catch up all the action at ADE Next on Saturday that comes next...
