Special acoustics

Big artists like toperform here because of the excellent acoustics. It took some hard work to cover the entire hall inspecial acoustic panels. So it was withreason that AFAS Live was nominated for the Pollstar Awards forthe best international concert venue.


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