LAST 50 is a charity campaign launched in collaboration with some of the biggest promoters selling out at ADE, so yes, the best parties in town! 
Promoters are selling their last 50 tickets and giving the proceeds to charity, in particular to the educational program that Bridges for Music is developing in South Africa. It's a way to celebrate the success of the event by sharing the love for music with others less fortunate. 
Hyte, The Gardens of Babylon, Thuishaven- Life and Death and Don't Sit On have already confirmed their support to this campaign and surely more will be added soon. 
Don't miss out, there is still a chance to get into some of ADE's sold out events.

We are happy to share these pictures with you of the construction of our upcoming music & entrepreneurship academy in Langa (South Africa). This project which was kickstarted and funded by Resident Advisor and the Cycle 2 ADE campaign is our most ambitious project to date. After some unexpected challenges along the way, including the worst storm in Cape Town in 30 years, we are back on track and phase 1 of the building is looking promising and exciting. Once this phase is completed in the next month, we will start phase 2, which consists of the computer lab, main recording studio, lecture hall and offices. Thanks to all the partners and private donors that have stuck with us throughout all these challenges.

We experienced one of the most special evenings on our journey so far, our first gala dinner with Ultra South Africa to support the construction of the Music & Entrepreneurship school in Langa, Cape Town. It was an evening full of magical moments in the form of music, art and inspirational talks from members of the Langa community.
Thanks to all the bidders for their generosity and especially to the biggest bidder of the night DJ SNAKE who went all in to support the cause. Also big thanks to Skrillex for bidding via Facetime. We extend our thanks to Mum-z, Katlego Maboe, Alice Phoebe Lou, Thabo MObo, Natasha, Jessica Jay Lange, Amie Elliot and everyone who donated at the auction: Lionel Smit, Daya Heller, IAM (filming non profit in Langa), Cape Town Club, Kristian Schmidt, Olwethu, ZOJA, International Music Summit and Thunder City for their contributions.
