Ad Visser (born 28 April 1947 in Amsterdam) is a Dutch VJ, presenter, writer, and music artist.

In 1965, Visser performed with his avant-garde pop trio Blurp on AVRO television.

He presented the AVRO programmes Superclean Dreammachine (1968–1980) and TopPop (1970–1985).

In 1982, he wrote a science-fiction novel called Sobriëtas and released an accompanying record as a multimedia project. The album was released in 18 countries and the single from the album, "Giddyap a Gogo", which Visser recorded with Daniel Sahuleka,[1] reached the Dutch Top 40, which resulted in Visser's only appearance as an artist in his own Toppop programme.

In the 1990s, Visser released the Brainsessions CDs which generate alpha waves to give the listener a trance-like experience.
