“Great SHM concert”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

I attended this venue in December for the Swedish House Mafia Concert.

The ziggodome is only a 15 minute journey from Amsterdam Central (€5.80 return ticket). Its then only a 5 minute walk from the station. Its right beside the Amsterdam arenA!

The doors opened at 7:00, when we arrived at 8:00 we had to queue for an hour to get in to the venue, then wait 20 minutes to be searched by a man who thoroughly patted us down, waited aout 20 minutes to buy tokens from the machine for your drink then waited a further 15 minutes to be served at the bar.

With all the waiting about it kinda put a dampner on things.

The Ziggodome you do not have a seat number so its a first come first serve basis for the standing area when thats full you can sit anywhere you want in the seating area. Seats are big and spacious. We had enough room to dance :)

When SHM came on the sound was so loud and it was a great atmosphere. I have to say this is one of the best concerts Ive been to and I loved the arena!!!!!

“Large venue with great sound”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

The Ziggo Dome opened last year to much fuss because it turned out to have more capacity than the other large indoor venues such as Ahoy. Well, that's not the only difference. The sound quality is really good. Whether The Black Keys or Muse it's a loud (but not deafening) full sound. The hall is not too warm and because of it's wide construction..you always have a good view of the stage. It really fills the gap between the Heineken Music Hall and the terrible( for music) Arena. Plenty of bar frontage and close toilet facilities make sure that you won't have to miss much music time. One of the things I really like is the fact that there are lockers available so you don't have to queue up for a cloakroom if you just want to dump your raincoat. Tickets are quite expensive at this venue but if it means that the really big names are going to be playing Amsterdam again then it is worth it. I mean, I can get there on the bicycle now!
