Resource hub Insights ADE Green returns in 2018 The sixth edition of ADE Green will take place at Amsterdam Dance Event on October 17th this year, and is all about sharing knowledge and expertise and engaging decision-makers in the music and festival industry to ignite and strengthen sustainability, innovation and social change. Themes this year include the role that artists have played in inspiring their audiences towards a better future, how the festival industry can take the lead in responsible plastic use, and practical solutions for green and less energy use.
