“North Sea Jazz Fest - I'll be back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

Venue was excellent for the NSJF. We were blown away. Easy to navigate, acoustics were good. Location to the train was so good. Minimal walking and easy access. The staff there were well trained and extremely helpful. The festival was amazing!

“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!

Great jazz festival, lots of new and old music. Good food, nice people and staff. Every year a true feast for the ears and the mind.
