Overview
More
Melkweg stands for pop culture in the most broad of senses. Each year, hundreds of concerts, club nights, films and music films, theatre performances, expositions and multidisciplinary events together attract more than 400,000 visitors. The venue is located in the only surviving factory building on the Amsterdam canal ring, a former sugar and, later, milk factory. This historical building houses two concert halls, a cinema, a theatre, and an exposition space, which each can be used separately or combined together. In the Melkweg, established names can be seen alongside new talent and emerging styles get the chance to reach a broader audience. The diversity of its programming and visitors, together with its different spaces and special location, have for years made the Melkweg a unique place.

I had a great time at Encore. I came solo and was able to feel comfortable dancing the night away. There is coat check and clean bathrooms. The sound system is light is amazing. Rivals the smaller clubs in Las Vegas!

Excellent venue for concerts. Modern, refurbished interior, cool temperature inside. Didn't see any marking on the exterior of the building to show this was the correct place, other than a temporary stand in the street: so be sure you have the right entrance as there...More

Absolutely brilliant night. Queue was long at the door but moved very fast , not the biggest venue but it wasn't over crowded either. Certain drinks were dear enough but bottles of beer were normal, nice staff.

Decent venue and really cool looking. Came here to see Picture This and it was a great venue. Good size, as most O2 academy venues are. Sound was decent and the building was quirky.

S*** happens! One hour of line even if you bought your tickets on the internet. After that you deserve to make the queue for the vestiaires! One room should have been dedicated to 90’ and 00’ songs but instead of that we have to endure...More

When I listened to the second act, I was very suprised that the audience were cheering, as almost no-one in the band could even play their instruments, except the drummer. If this type of performance was played in Scotland, the band would have been chased...More

Hi we stayed at hotel d’amsterdam... it was basic but clean and close to the Melkweg, bars and restaurants, at the very most 10 mins walk (just over the bridge) or 5 mins if it’s cold. Some good bars on the way too! X
