Attraction details
Owner description: Melkweg stands for pop culture in the most broad of senses. Each year, hundreds of concerts, club nights, films and music films, theatre performances, expositions and multidisciplinary events together attract more than 400,000 visitors. The venue is located in the only surviving factory building on the Amsterdam canal ring, a former sugar and, later, milk factory. This historical building houses two concert halls, a cinema, a theatre, and an exposition space, which each can be used separately or combined together. In the Melkweg, established names can be seen alongside new talent and emerging styles get the chance to reach a broader audience. The diversity of its programming and visitors, together with its different spaces and special location, have for years made the Melkweg a unique place.

Went here finally (on my 9th visit to Amsterdam over 15 years) and turned up for a free gig featuring Zimbabwe artists' Mann Friday and Rita Mushonga. Great gig venue (didn't go in the club bit) with good bar service and acoustics.

Can't believe I haven't been before, will definitely go back.

We saw Black Flag here and the venue was very good, the stage is high and there are no barriers so it is easy to see the bands and get very close.

The bars are cheap and glass collectors are constantly on the go around the venue to ensure there is no rubbish about.

Went here and saw a band called I Killed The Prom Queen back in July/August last year and it's a really great little venue! Cheap beer, good sound and a nice vibe plus a band I had wanted to see for a long time made for a wicked night!

Definitely check it out If you happen to be in Amsterdam and a band you like is playing! In fact check it out anyway!!

Over the weekend we attended 2 events each in a different location. Both were great fun, well organised and really enjoyable. We saw a great live band one night and a wonderful dance performance the other - part of Julidans festival Actually getting tickets from the box office was the most difficult part of the whole process - I think it was the girl's first day!
The venue is a mixture of cinema, music venue and performing arts centre. It is just off Leidseplein and so very easy to access.There is a small cafe/bar at the venue which was ok but you are so close to so many bars/restaurants close by that you will be spoilt for choice.
If you like music, performance or films then always checkout the website for up and coming events before you go

We have been there twice both at different times of the year. The first concert we attended at the Melkweg was during the winter holiday peak season and they were accomendating and prepared for a large crowd. The second time was for the TOM TOM CLUB and it was wonderful! We can always count on a great show at the Melkweg! And love the Melkweg diner too!
