The Island of Electronic Music? Amsterdam Dance Event Brings Electric Festival Back to Aruba for Round Two
Does five days of fun in the Caribbean sun, an Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE) conference, and music festival sound like something that may interest you? Silly question, of course you’re interested! Aruba Tourism Authority (ATA) and Amsterdam Dance Event are working in conjunction with each other to bring Electric Festival (EF) back to Aruba. On the heels of a successful debut last year, Electric Festival has expanded to a 5 day event, September 3-7, in preparation to become the biggest annual electronic music festival in the Caribbean. Last years event brought out over 15,000 attendees, both Aruban and international. The island was transformed into an epic 3 day party headlined by Chuckie (current Aruban citizen), Nero, and Erick Morillo, among others.
In 2014, Aruba Tourism Authority and Amsterdam Dance Event aim to work together to turn 20 miles of the world’s best beaches into a networking playground for record company representatives, artist managers, music publishers, agencies, and festival programmers alike. The conference and festival are designed work in harmony to create this surreal meeting environment.
In addition to the ADE conference and music festival, EF will showcase art exhibitions, highlight the unique Caribbean cuisine and lifestyle, and host DJ workshops and demonstrations for both producers and fans! You can expect plenty of pre-party madness as well. Rumor has it, the Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino will be partnering up with Electric Festival to hold a pre-festival pool party featuring a special guest.
The slogan of Aruba is “One Happy Island” and Electric Festival 2014 is sure to make this “One Very Happy Island.” I can speak from experience when I say this country is absolutely breathtaking. Aruba is home to pristine white beaches, friendly locals, and, thanks to the efforts of ADE and ATA, the biggest electronic music gathering in the Caribbean.
