Street parade icons and future clubs in the spotlight at ADE Pro
Millions of people take part in street parades every year, but what are they really for, and who picks up the mess afterwards? 

Organisers of some of Europe’s biggest street-based events will be talking about the highs and lows, how they deal with politicians, why they do what they do, and why they keep on doing such a demanding and complicated job. 

ADE Pro also includes three panels looking at the future of clubbing, from the perspective of the power of design, the importance of strategy, and whether or not to be semi-nomadic.
