VBX – ADE Afterhours, Bret
This party has got ‘classic’ written all over it. One of Europe’s top minimal/micro collectives throwing an afters in one of Europe’s top afters venues? The line-up for the VBX afters at BRET is a closely guarded secret but if you cast your mind to what parties were on last night and who is in town to play at them you have some rather special potential candidates for this event.

Dailycid x Crane Sessions ADE DJ W!LD & friends, Crane Hotel

This will also act as an afterhours party too running from 6am to 5pm, so be quick while one of the 70 tickets are still available.

Undefined Mornings ADE, Oosterbar
Oosterbar seems to be one of the places to be this ADE as they have seen some serious action by the time Undefined Mornings swings around. Kicking off at 9am Alex Picone, Charonne, Michael Melchner, S Max, Pelle b2b Herra and Unnik b2b Tom Kraan are more than capable of keeping that groove going well into the evening.
