ADE Hangover - Free entrance

NDSM-Wharf - 22 October, 12AM - 11PM

After fluttering about on the ADE grounds, we go for the closing round of our week. At ADE Hangover, we squeeze our last drops of pizazz out. Hungover? Haven’t-heard-of-her! Let’s bash and brawl and bring the week to a sparkling conclusion. With food trucks, craft beers, a bunch of art and creativity, a vintage market, cosy tubs and campfires and, best of all, loads of live music and DJs, we provide you with the perfect soil to burn up the dancefloor one last time.

And not to forget: ADE Hangover is free of charge! All you have to do is show up.

Live music & DJs

There will be an inspiring selection of artists playing at ADE Hangover. Get your groove on with them live bands, swinging and twirling. Or go to your old stomping ground with dazzling deejays. With this year’s line-up, you’ll be properly stimulated to give it your all. Stay tuned for our program.

Art & Creativity

There are two driving forces in this world. Destruction, as in destroying the dancefloor, and creation, as in letting creativity flow. You will find all sorts of inventive artistic activities and installations at the NDSM shipyard. Keep in close touch for updates on our inspiration breeding ground.

Vintage market

This year, ADE Hangover hosts the birth of something the biggest Kilo Kilo market ever. This wicked vintage clothing vendor charges by weight. Simply put them on the scales to own your finds. Found the perfect addition to your collection? Then afterwards, you can go nuts on the pinball machines in your new slick drip.
