- The intimate events will see figures like Francois K, Loco Dice and Daniel Miller donning their chef caps.
Beatport and Native Instruments have teamed up for a series of ADE events called Traktor Cookery School.
Traktor Cookery School will ask influential artists and industry figures to prepare their favorite dish for a small group of conference delegates. The guest chef will say a few words about his or her dish, and also share some insights on music and digital DJing. Guest chefs won't be announced until the day of the event (via a notice board outside the building), but those locked in for the week include Francois K, Loco Dice, Blond:ish, Daniel Miller, Ann and Tony Andrews of Funktion One, Native Instruments CEO Daniel Haver and Elliot Shaw from DC-10. Each event will also have a variety of Native Instruments products on display and product specialists on hand to explain them.
The sessions will take place next door to The Dylan, where much of ADE's other events will take place. Entrance is free to conference attendees but capacity is very limited. If you're not about for the event, RA will be providing regular updates via Twitter and Facebook.
