Good concert venue

This hall is a good venue, in my opinion not as good as the Ziggo dome, but for sure a good 2nd place. Concerts here are easily accessible and sound quality is good.

We stayed in old Amsterdam and took the metro from the train station directly to the Bijlmer Arena stop. It was an easy trip, much less expensive and time consuming than taking a cab. We came from the US to see Jackson Browne, so were pleasantly surprised at the sound quality; the acoustics were excellent. The Dutch crowd was SO... More

I came form the UK to see counting crows, was great to see them in such a great venue. One of my favourites. Food and drinks were tokens, but I found this easier and make the queues quicker. I stayed in a local hotel and getting to and from the venue form the airport was easy. Very clean and well... More

For such a large venue I was a quite amazed at the total lack of security. Checks are made for food and drink upon entry, but a small firearms or other concealed weapons were clearly not on the security check list. Just don't try to smuggle in a bag of maltesers. Once inside you become aware that they want your... More

This place must have been purpose built for music , the acoustics were spot on ! Easy to use cloakrooms to dump your coats etc, good,clean,... More

I visited this venue for the Sam Smith concert. It was sold out. Location was good. Easy to get there with train or metro. They use an outdated token system. Which is extremely overpriced. They check your bag at the entrance to make sure you don't sneak in food or drinks. Which is ridiculous strict. Needless to say, we didn't... More

Travelled from the UK to see "The Gaslight Anthem" here and it is a pretty standard indoor arena venue. Clean and tidy and well organised. Facilities are all fine but you do need to be aware that you cannot use cash for food and drinks and have to buy tokens from a machine in order to purchase anything. A pleasant... More
