Frequently Asked Questions

Tickets

  • Where can I buy tickets for an event?

    ​The easiest way to purchase tickets is via the ‘Tickets’ link provided next to each event in Events. Our box office sells both presale tickets and tickets on the day. You can also go to several presale addresses.
    Please Note: Melkweg.nl and Ticketmaster.nl are the only official online ticket selling points. Any other websites offering tickets are re-sellers. You often pay a much higher price and risk buying tickets that are invalid.

  • When is the box office open?

    ​On weekdays, our box office opens at 12.00 and during the weekend at 16.30.
    Our box office closes towardsthe end of the last event of that day, and at the latest at 3.00am. When there are no events scheduled on weekdays, the box office closes at 18.00. If there are no events scheduled during the weekend, the box office remains closed. Exceptions on the mentioned opening times are communicated in the agenda. The box office is located at the main entrance on the Lijnbaansgracht. 

  • Do I need to pay service costs?

    ​Purchasing tickets in the presale will require an additional service cost of 13.5% of the ticket price. Our box office presale tickets have no further additional fees. Purchasing e-tickets online will include a transaction fee (iDeal payment method costs € 0.67). Postal bookings or purchases at presale addresses will also include an additional distribution fee. On the day of the event, our box office charges no additional fees.

You can purchase the membership directly with your ticket on Ticketmaster or separately on this page. You can also become a Year Member for € 25 per year.

Program

  • What time do events actually start?

    ​The starting time specified in the events calendar is the time that the doors open. For concerts, the complete time schedule is announced in the events calendar at least one week in advance. Showtimes are always subject to change.

  • What time does an event end?

    ​As the length of a concert is determined by the artist, we are unable to specify an end time for concerts. In most cases the main act will take a maximum of 1.5 hours. Club nights usually end at 4.00 or 5.00 am. The duration of films and theatre shows are specified in the calendar.

  • What do I do when an event is cancelled?

    ​Ticket or membership refunds for cancelled events may be requested up to six months after the scheduled date. For e-tickets, please go to this page to request your refund. Further information can also be found on the Ticketmaster customer support page.

  • What do I do when an event is rescheduled?

    ​As any purchased ticket and/or membership remains valid on the newly scheduled date, you actually do not have to do anything. If you are unable to attend the event on the new date, you can request a refund up until one day prior to the new date. For e-tickets, please go to this page to request your refund. Further information can also be found on the Ticketmaster customer support page

  • Is there any way of obtaining tickets for a sold-out event?

    ​No. When an event is indicated as sold out on our website, there really are no more tickets available. We strongly advise against purchasing tickets via other websites than Melkweg.nl or Ticketmaster.nl. Any other websites offering tickets are re-sellers. You often pay a much higher price and risk buying tickets that are invalid. For further information on ticket reselling, please go to Weet Waar Je Koopt (in Dutch).

  • What are your terms of entry?
  • Is there an age restriction?

    ​There is no age restriction for concerts and other performances, unless specified otherwise. If you are aged 15 or under, we do advise you to be accompanied by someone who is 18 or older.
    At club nights, an age restriction of 16+ or 18+ applies. If no age restriction is specified in the events calendar, the night is 16+.
    Films with an age restriction are also indicated as such in the events calendar.

  • Which measures is Melkweg taking regarding the 18+ alcohol policy?

    ​The new Alcohol and Licensing Act in the Netherlands became law as of 1 January 2014. Visitors under the age of 18 are no longer permitted to purchase or consume any alcoholic beverages. It is therefore important for you to always carry a valid ID. When in doubt, we will ask to present one. At some events, a valid ID provides anyone older than 18 with a wristband to purchase alcohol. It is prohibited to purchase and pass on alcohol to visitors who are under 18. Any evidence of this will deny you entry. This also applies to the visitor who accepted the alcoholic beverage.

  • Is Melkweg also accessible to less abled?

    ​Melkweg is accessible to everybody. Events in our concert halls are generally standing. If you need a seat due to medical reasons, please contact us in advance, and we are happy to arrange a chair for you.
    The halls do not have designated wheelchair spaces, but our staff can easily assist in finding a suitable space. Please note: at busy or sold-out events your view may be limited. We therefore prefer you to contact us in advance, so we can provide sufficient information and assistance on the night. There are a number of disabled parking spaces in the vicinity of the Melkweg.

  • Can I also enjoy a meal in the Melkweg cafe?

    ​Yes. At the back of the building (Marnixstraat 409) you can find the cafe-restaurant. This is run by Eat@Jo’s and is open Wednesdays - Sundays from 12.00 to 21.00. From the cafe-restaurant you can also visit the Melkweg Gallery (for free). For further information or reservations, please call +31(0)20 6383336

  • Why do I need a Melkweg membership?

    ​Melkweg is a non-profit organization with cultural and social objectives. Purchasing a membership alongside your ticket allows Melkweg to provide a broad cultural programme, with plenty of room also for new talent. If you are a frequent visitor at the Melkweg, it is easier and cheaper to become a Year Member for € 25 per year. Besides being a member, a year membership also gives you lots of special offers, such as free admission to numerous concerts, club nights and shows, as well as discounts for certain club nights, cinema and theatre.
