“Great venue for North Sea Jazz Fest”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

Our first visit to NSJ was very pleasant and a blast! Visited multiple stages over the 3 days and all had great acoustics. There were thousands of people but it was pretty well organised. The venue seemed to be well managed. Small, pricey beers that probably helped keep the crowds in line. A lot of good food choices reasonably priced. It was amazing to see so much talent in one spot!

“North Sea Jazz Fest”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

The 2013 North Sea Jazz Fest at Ahoy was my best concert experience to date. Ahoy really did a lot to support the experience through the effective scheduling for the vast collection of artists between the many stages, the quality, variety, and location of culinary vendors, and the maintenance/sanitation of the facilities during 3 days of eating, drinking, and partying. Thanks, Ahoy!

“Cirque du soleil at ahoy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

Ahoy is a huge venue that could serve all the needs from concerts to expos. We attended cirque du soleil there and it was great. From organization of parking to entrance. Good acoustics and seating.
