Dockyard has been a firm fixture of the ADE event schedule for a while now. 

It is the ultimate house and techno gathering and takes place in a venue that mixes up greener with industrialism. 

In 2019 it happens on October 19th at Havenpark and offers 12 hours of non stop tunes. 

Here are the five best things to look out for. 

The line-up

Few will rival Dockyard during ADE: Dubfire, Eats Everything, Nic Fanciulli, Nastia, Mind Against, Len Faki, Recondite, Benny Rodrigues, Paco Osuna, Matador, DVS1, Patrice Bäumel, Dax J, Ellen Allien, Monika Kruse, Ben Sims, Secret Cinema, Dense & Pika, Oscar Mulero, Joey Daniel, DJ Bone, Surgeon, Radio Slave and more all play. Do not miss. 

The Mystic Garden hook up

Once again Dockyard links with Mystic Garden who have a more natural, fairyland and organic vibe compared to the industrialism of Dockyard. As such after entering through the main entrance, you can wander back and forth between the two worlds. It’s up to you how your adventure plays out. 

The new talent

_unpaved_ is an important platform given over to some of the most exciting new names in underground electronic music. It started with a series of special live streams in May and will end with a number of these artists playing at Dockyard itself. Keep your eyes peeled for the hit new talents. 

The production

The festival like all in The Netherlands is known for its immersive audio visuals, killer sound systems and ease of site access. Getting around is a doddle, drinks are easily accessible and when dancing at and of the stages you will be deeply sunk into the whole experience thanks to the attention to detail across the site. 

The location

Havenpark Amsterdam offers plenty of space, green areas and an industrial touch to make it a proper rave site and the ultimate festival location. Located next to the harbours it is just five minutes from Sloterdijk train station and 20 minutes from the city centre.
