Accelerator-based experiments are playing an increasingly essential role in exploring the nature of dark matter. Several approaches have been proposed to search for light dark matter at collider and beam-dump experiments, providing unique sensitivity to several well-motivated scenarios. In this contribution, we review the current experimental situation and future efforts in that domain, emphasizing the advantages and challenges of each technique. A new proposal offering unprecedented sensitivity to directly annihilating thermal dark matter, the LDMX experiment, is also presented.
