The time has finally come to dance together again. The week of DGTL ADE is here and we could not be more excited to see you. This blog contains all the important information for this upcoming week, so we ask you to read this carefully. 



Wanted to join us for more events but missed out on a ticket? We have a very limited amount of Friday tickets for 'DGTL X IPSO ADE: Kölsch, Maya Jane Coles and more'.





Due to the government’s current regulations, events are prohibited to take place during the night this year. As you know, we, therefore, had to make big adjustments. A quick reminder that the opening hours for the event are as follows:


Thursday: 16:00 - 00:00

Friday: 16:00 - 00:00

Saturday: 12:00 - 23:00



PLEASE NOTE: It is obligated by the Dutch government that all visitors can present a negative test result OR a European DCC vaccination passport or proof of recovery in combination with a valid ID (no copy) to enter an event.


If you do not have a vaccination passport or proof of recovery, please take a test at a maximum of 24 and a minimum of 2 hours in advance to prove you do not have COVID-19. Once you received a negative result, you are able to create your personal QR code in the CoronaCheck-app. This QR code will get scanned when entering the DGTL event.


If you arrive past the result limit of 24 hours, your test will be invalid and you cannot access the event. It is your own responsibility to schedule a test at the right time and arrive within the limit of your test result. Keep in mind that it might be busy at the entrance during peak hours, so plan your testing and arrival carefully. Making an appointment for a corona test is possible via www.testenvoortoegang.nl.


We recommend heading over to our website to read all about the corona protocol in our FAQ.


Coming from outside Europe (including the UK)?
At this moment we can only scan the European Corona Certificat (DCC) which means that if you are coming from outside the EU, you need to get tested via www.testenvoortoegang.nl to show a negative test result at the entrance. You can create the scannable QR code via the website once you have received your results.



Pay directly at the bar by card or smartphone. Only brought cash? There will be a top-up station where you can exchange your cash for a DGTL card to pay with.



You will pay a one-off fee for your drink cups and PET water bottles. When these cups and/or bottles are returned at the bar the paid fee will be distracted on the following order. The fee on your cup and bottle is €1 and is not refundable. At the end of the night, you can trade your cup for a recycle token with a unique code and win prizes!




- A dance floor for all

- A place to feel comfortable and free

- Exploring a curiosity for electronic music, art, and culture

- A sustainable future

A safer dance floor is a collective effort. Help us create an environment free from harassment, ableism, racism, homophobia, transphobia, and sexism.



After a very long break from dancing, we are now finally back together. To enjoy ADE to the fullest, we recommend reading more about how to celebrate safely on Celebrate Safe's website. Take care and have fun 🖤



As festival organisation and visitors, it is our responsibility to be mindful of the environment. DGTL strives to generate zero waste. Therefore, we kindly ask you to not bring any single-use items to the festival, such as balloons, flags, inflatable items etc.



Get your lockers in advance and skip the line.






Take the ferry from Central Station towards NDSM and follow the DGTL signs to the entrance. On Thursday and Friday, the ferry will have several departures towards Central Station until 1,5 hours after the event. On Saturday the ferry will have departures until 2 hours after the event.
