Mariana Sanchotene is the new Director of the Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE) foundation.
She has more than 20 years of experience in the international live entertainment industry. She’s worked for companies such as ID&T, Stage Entertainment and Cirque du Soleil.
Her appointment coincides with the foundation’s transition into an independent foundation. Mariana succeeds Richard Zijlma, who, together with Buma Cultuur director Frank Helmink, is still responsible for the upcoming edition of the Amsterdam Dance Event.
“ADE has been very special to me for years. It’s the time of the year when the entire electronic music industry comes to Amsterdam to exchange ideas, conduct business, network, meet friends and, above all, enjoy music. I’ve always been proud to say that Amsterdam organises the best electronic music conference and the largest club festival. I’m looking forward to working with the ADE team and all other organisations involved in the success of this event”, said Mariana Sanchotene.
This year’s Amsterdam Dance Event will take place from the 17th to the 21st of October, 2018.
