This week Amsterdam will be the centre of the international Dance industry when for five days straight when the 17th edition of the Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE) takes place. For years, ADE has been the biggest international club festival and the world's most important music conference for Dance and Electronic Music. This record-breaking edition, which starts on Wednesday the 17th of October and lasts until Sunday the 21st of October, will expand even more with the biggest artists and special events for different target groups in the scene, attracting 200.000 festival visitors and more than 3500 music professionals from 65 countries. Bolstering Toolroom's connection with Amsterdam's annual Dance Event, Toolroom TV caught up with Dutch superstar Hardwell to talk about the pivotal role the city plays, ahead of Toolroom's third annual Amsterdam compilation -- 'Toolroom Records Amsterdam 2012'. Set to a backing track of selected cuts from the album, Hardwell takes a tour of his favorite Holland hangouts; from the Blue restaurant atop the Kalvertoren shopping centre, to the Patta sneaker shop and onto Club Home, where the first Revealed Recordings party took shape. Demonstrating why ADE is such an important event in the dance community's calendar, Toolroom TV uncovers how the city shaped Hardwell's foray into electronic music, and hints at potential future Toolroom projects, too!
