Heineken Music Hall


The Heineken Music Hall is a fairly recent big concert hall in Amsterdam Zuidoost. Located near the Amsterdam Arena, the home stadium of football club Ajax, it hosts big concerts on a weekly basis. The big hall, which is also called ‘the black box’, can accommodate 5,500 people. It also has a smaller hall for about 700 people, where after-show parties are often held.

Special acoustics

Big artists like to perform here because of the excellent acoustics. It took some hard work to cover the entire hall in special acoustic panels. So it was with reason that the Heineken Music Hall was nominated for the Pollstar Awards for the best international concert venue.


You may not be surprised to learn that the concert hall is sponsored by beer brand Heineken. In addition to big concerts, the Heineken Music Hall hosts the annual Dutch MTV Awards and regularly stages big dance parties. It is easily accessible by underground metro from Central Station.
