DJs to Cycle in Place at ADE’s 2020 Bridges For Music Fundraiser

by | Oct 21, 2020 | Event, Stories | 0 comments

Each year, Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE) hosts a cycle fundraiser for South African music education initiative Bridges For Music. The COVID-19 crisis has called for significant changes to the format of the 2020 conference, including a social distancing-compliant version of the charity event.

Rather than riding through Amsterdam together, DJs and industry figureheads will pedal in place on stationary bikes in clubs throughout the world. The event will be live streamed via Beatport‘s Twitch channel. Richie HawtinRebekah and Themba are among the artists participating in the fundraiser.
