Find a hostel in Amsterdam to witness the Amsterdam Dance Event
The Amsterdam Dance Event is coming back to the Netherlands this October and looks like it will be bigger than ever.

For this reason alone, it may be wise for dance fans to snap up cheap hostels in Amsterdam now and get ready to enjoy one of the most popular party festivals in Europe.

It all kicks off on October 20th and will last four days, right up until late into the night of October 23rd, where the event will be split into two separate parts, one for the morning and the other once the sun goes down.

The daytime events are dominated by a series of conferences, which has the intention of "providing the international electronic music industry [with] an extensive platform to do business, to exchange knowledge and keep up to date on the latest developments and trends".

So those hoping to get a step-up into the electronic music industry, this part of the festival should be one of the main places to attend, seeing as though 2,500 professionals are set to be here from more than 50 countries around the world.

Once the business side of the event is out of the way, for those booking up a hostel in Amsterdam, the night brings with it a festival-like atmosphere, which is estimated to see 100,000 music fans descend on to the city.

Here, they will witness the key trends of the season for the industry, where 44 clubs will be home to a total of around 700 of the best electronic music artists in the world. Well-known names already set to be performing include Kelis, Sasha and Paul van Dyk, to name but a few.
