Pure Trance and Amsterdam go hand in hand. It’s a love affair that was first ignited in 2012, when Solarstone celebrated the official launch of the Pure Trance movement. 7 years, 7 incredible editions of Amsterdam Dance Event and countless moments with thousands of worldwide trance lovers sharing their devotion for the scene, later – Pure Trance is proud to announce its return to Dutch soil.

Two Pure Heroes: Solarstone + Orkidea

On Friday October 18th, Solarstone’s Pure Trance welcomes you to the world’s biggest club festival, ADE, with an exclusive, intimate club night. That night, the Amsterdam waters will tremble to the sound of two Pure heroes: Solarstone and Orkidea. Extended sets, all night long.

Think Sasha and Digweed. Adam Beyer and Carl Cox. Deadmau5 and Eric Prydz. Musical synergy, uniting two masterminds, each showcasing their own take on the entire spectrum of trance music.  Being part of the trance scene for over 2 decades, Solarstone and Orkidea have earned their stripes in the ever-evolving electronic dance music scene.


Solarstone, headmaster and flagbearer of the Pure Trance movement, explains why he chose to do extended sets for this year’s ADE special: “Orkidea is one of my oldest music business friends and I’m possibly his biggest fan, I can’t think of anybody with whom I would like to share the decks with more for this all-night long show, it’s going to be very special.”


Finland’s Orkidea, a loyal yet open-minded ‘Purist’, knows exactly how to deal with an extended set, feeling right at home in the city that breathes electronic dance music. Orkidea:“Amsterdam is the place where it all started so it is the perfect place to connect with the global trance family while redefining the sound of Pure Trance for 2020 and beyond.

We Houden Van Amsterdam.

Throughout the years, Pure Trance at ADE has taken place in several different venues across the Dutch capital, attracting fans from all across the globe, with enticing line-ups of renowned names and rising talents, an ever-present feel-good atmosphere and a show that focuses on the music itself.

This year, Pure Trance sets sail with the Docks 1 Boat. A special, high-end events boat with a capacity of 600, that docks right behind Amsterdam Central Station, and sails the Amstel during the night.

An exclusive amount of 100 early bird tickets (€27,50) will be available via puretrance.com from June 18th on. We offer special combo tickets with Black Hole Recordings’s ADE Night on Saturday October 19th – an early bird combo ticket offering access to both nights is €50,-.
