Venue Hire

Looking for a unique venue to host an event?

A well-known pop music venue across the globe, Melkweg provides a stage for pop culture in the broadest sense of the word. The former milk factory has an industrial character with a raw and authentic look. The atmosphere at Melkweg is both welcoming and easy-going. The venue’s ideal location in the Amsterdam city centre makes it easily accessible by public transport.

Melkweg houses several venue halls suitable for concerts, events, film screenings, as well as school, student and corporate events and presentations. 

Our professional live music technical facilities provide for high-quality events.
Melkweg only uses in-house, qualified staff- from technicians to security, bar to back-office. We ensure a professional and friendly welcome to you and your guests.

The Melkweg venue halls are available for hire when not being used for its own artistic programming. Please be aware of varying availability.
Concerts and club nights are already part of Melkweg’s artistic programming. All applications for concerts and club nights will therefore be referred to our programming team.
