music venue

With the sheer number of theatres, clubs, stages and intimate neighbourhood venues, Amsterdam has live music venues to suit every taste. And as a European capital, Amsterdam is a popular stop for almost all major touring pop and rock bands. Legendary venues such as Paradiso and Melkweg, a wide variety of intimate clubs and the bigger arenas like Ziggo Dome and Heineken Music Hall are ready to host them.
