Art & Music

Last year, the Gigstarter team in collaboration with ADE and amazing craftsmen & artists, organized a music and art exhibition for a week. We were proud that Feel It De Expo was part of the official ADE programme, a fantastic experience that we all won’t forget! This year, you can also visit similar free exhibitions such as Where There is Light. And if you purchase the ADE Pro Pass, you will be able to access some of the events for free.
