Your visit to Melkweg

You can read an update following the press conference on Tuesday evening 13 October here.

Finally, we can open our doors to the public again and so we´re filling our agenda with new programs! In the upcoming months you can enjoy intimate sessions with Halcyon, Ares, Faces on TV and various films. At the bottom of this page you can find an overview of the programs that will take place soon.

During all programs, we follow the corona protocol of our association VNPF and take into account the guidelines of the Dutch government and RIVM. This means that a visit to the Melkweg will look different than you are used to. For example, we allow fewer people in the hall, so that there is a seat for everyone and a distance of 1.5 meters from other visitors can be kept. It is also mandatory to wear a mouth mask during your visit. Read more about our adjusted house rules and additional information about your visit in times of corona here.

Suspended programs related to corona

Due to the previous ban on events and gatherings and the regulations that still apply at the moment, we´ve had to suspend our regular programming until at least September 1st, 2020 and additional measures regarding the organization of events are still in place at this time. For this reason, programs are still being moved, even after September 1. Where possible, we looked for new data for these postponed programs with artists and organizations. In many cases we´ve succeeded in finding them. On this page you can find an overview of the programs for which a new date has now been confirmed. We regularly add to this overview, because new dates are announced almost daily. For more information on what to do if you are unable to attend the new date or if the program you would be attending is canceled, please check this page.

All other concerts and programs will take place in a regular manner for the time being. We will continue to announce programs taking place in the future in the hopes that by then we will be able to host events without following the corona protocol.

Support the Melkweg

Hundreds of concerts, club nights, performances, cinema screenings and exhibitions have been rescheduled or canceled in recent months out of necessity. The impact of the loss of income for artists and us as an organization is enormous and has major consequences for everyone working in the music industry. On this page we explain what the impact of the corona crisis is for us and how you can help us continue to offer space to promising young artists and image makers in the future by donating.
