The Amsterdam Dance Event is underway. Outside of Miami Music Week, the showcase is the most important conference in all of electronic dance music. Artists fresh off the festival circuit gather in the Dutch city to release their new productions which have been crafted during their travels. Tonight, the Nicky Romero's Protocol Records held their showcase, and as usual – it was full of surprises.

While the night featured several unreleased tracks from the likes of Nicky Romero and Florian Picasso, social media went ablaze when the special guests arrived. During his set, Nicky Romero welcomed both W&W and Martin Garrix to the stage. By all accounts, it was one of the most exciting sets to be heard so far in 2018.

So far we have been unable to find videos from the set, but of course, will update this article when they are uploaded to socials. The ADE is just getting started and is already setting the world of dance music on fire. Stay tuned for more news from Amsterdam.
