ADE Global Sessions Mumbai confirms first keynote speakers

ADE Global Sessions Mumbai confirms first keynote speakers


Riyaaz Amlani, CEO and managing director of the Impresario group, and DDP founder and CEO James ‘Disco Donnie’ Estopinal will be present at the second edition of ADE's global touring platform.

Following a sold-out inaugural event last year, the second edition of Global Sessions Mumbai, organised in association with GuestList4Good, takes place February 23-25 (Early Bird tickets/ also accesible for 2017 ADE Pass holders) and will feature keynote interviews with Riyaaz Amlani, CEO and managing director of the Impresario group, and DDP founder and CEO James ‘Disco Donnie’ Estopinal.
The ADE Global Sessions will once again focus on connecting the booming Indian and Asian electronic scenes with the rest of the world through a three-day event to be held in Mumbai. The daytime schedule features interactive MusicTalks with top artists, exclusive industry discussions, networking and speed dating sessions, strategy meetings, master classes covering the key issues of both the local scene as well as its current and future partnerships with both regional and international players.

Keynote interviews with outstanding individuals form the core of the event, with the aim of sharing the benefits of accumulated experience in both the wider workings of the music industry and the power and relevance of entrepreneurial drive. Both Amlani and Estopinal exemplify those core values.

Key factor in growing popularity of electronic music in India
Riyaaz Amlani is one of the most recognised restaurateurs in India today, but more importantly for his appearance at Global Sessions Mumbai, he is also the driving force behind the Social chain of restaurant/bar/club spaces which regularly host DJ sessions and are widely seen as a key factor in driving the growing popularity of electronic music in India. Starting out as a young, passionate entrepreneur, he was initially behind the success of Impresario, a company which started with a single restaurant and that has now become a multi-brand empire.  Over the last decade, he has created a number of new concepts and earned the admiration and respect of the Indian hospitality industry. A pioneer in his field, Amlani is famous for his uncanny ability to provide one-of-a-kind experiences to customers through innovation.

One of the godfathers of the US' electronic dance scene
James ‘Disco Donnie’ Estopinal (photo) is the founder of DDP and is considered to be one of the godfathers of the US’ electronic dance scene. From his early days in the 1990s New Orleans dance scene, Disco Donnie coupled eccentricity with ingenuity to create elaborately themed parties that charmed patrons, garnered an international following, and unwittingly became a catalyst for a national debate over the First Amendment right to expression.

From 2008-2012, Estopinal partnered with Pasquale Rotella, CEO of Insomniac Events, to strategically develop the Insomniac brand throughout the US. The partnership produced hundreds of club shows annually in nearly 100 local markets throughout the US, helping make Insomniac a household name. In 2017, Estopinal joined LIVESTYLE Entertainment, whose current portfolio includes Disco Donnie Presents, React, Life in Color, ID&T (Tomorrowland, Sensation, TomorrowWorld),, Electric Zoo, Stereosonic, and more.

ADE Global Sessions Mumbai is co-presented by Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE) & Guestlist4Good.
Supporting Partners: Bull N Bar, TixDo and Vh1 India.
