Yann Pissenem, Merck Mercuriadis to participate in ADE conference program

With recent announcements from China and South Korea at the Guesthouse and the new The Record Bag Of concept at Soundlab, ADE 2018’s conference program is rapidly becoming more fascinating and stimulating, with three more participants for ADE Pro and ADE Tech added to the mix. The latest additions to the speaker lineup will be bringing in insights from a wide variety of backgrounds, such as the Ushuaïa club, Guns N’ Roses, and the early days of the Black Eyed Peas.

First, delivering a keynote speech for ADE Pro will be Yann Pissenem from The Night League, Ushuaïa and Hï Ibiza. Nobody in club music should need to be told how much the Ushuaïa club and brand have encapsulated the upmarket 21st century developments in Ibiza’s cultural life, and since opening last summer, the brand new superclub Hï Ibiza has itself added a whole new dimension to that culture.

Merck Mercuriadis, meanwhile, will have no shortage of insights himself in his keynote speech. As a former manager of Beyoncé and Guns N’ Roses, and still managing Nile Rodgers, the seasoned executive has seen every aspect of the music industry from pretty much every angle.

Finally, and just as impressively, Polo Molina will be participating in ADE Tech this year. From success as a high school party promoter onwards, Polo has been part of the fabric of Los Angeles’ music culture, then America’s, and then the world’s.
