A lot of music artists and music groups have performed here. I myself have seen John Fogerty, EWF. Since a couple of years there is the North Sea Jazz festival. Then there are other events such as WWE, BMX, all sorts of sporting events. I last saw the Harlem Globetrotters. Sometimes food, books, cars. In Holland there are not a... More

We have visited Ahoy for the North Sea Jazz Festival 3 times and found it to be a very well run/organised venue. Staff at the varies food and drinks places are very pleasant. Good public transport links.

Great place for concerts. Has a HUGE parking lot for both cars (paid) and bikes (free). Feels very luxurious once you're inside. It's also very easy to reach by metro and bus! Caesar Milan has been there :D

The whole reason for our trip was to support someone in the BMX world championships being held at the Ahoy stadium. The stadium itself was good, with comfortable seating and a good view of the arena. However they were only using one entrace to the actual arena and at the end of the day when everyone was trying to get... More

Excellent venue for the BMX. The only minor issue is that if you sit moving around is difficult because there is no room for the legs.

Although the stadium area is nice, at least for the concert we were there to watch, I found two major faults with the venue. Firsly, and most importantly, it took us more than an hour to leave the premises after the concert, and that is counting from the moment we were inside the car! We payed 17 euros for the... More

I went to Ahoy for a convention. It is a very central venue, big enough to host conventions for thousands of people. It is only few minutes away from the Central train Station and it has a big shopping mall next to it where you can have a quick lunch or do some shopping during the lunch break if you... More

Parking for a high fee, than tickets that are not cheap preventing families with children to enter. It's very commercially but cheap set up with a lot of staff that just walks around a bit.

3days when everywhere is music from the roof to between the inside podiums. From champagne oysters to beer and fries and sate. Lots of fresh fruit and a chill garden. Must be a lover of soul and jazz. Rest of the year standardevents and music like every town.

Visited this two years in a row for the North Sea Jazz festival. It contains numerous exhibition/conference rooms or stages, ranging from the cavernous to the intimate. The whole place is clean and efficient. It's a short walk from Zuidplein station or an easy half hour cycle ride from Centraal if you prefer.
