Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Melkweg stands for pop culture in the most broad of senses and focuses on concerts, club nights, (music) films, theatre performances, expositions and multidisciplinary events. At Melkweg established names can be seen alongside new talent, and emerging styles can have 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 Melkweg a unique place. Alongside the diverse music programming in both concert halls as well as the upstairs hall, with both international names and home-grown talent, their club nights also represent a wide variety of music styles and audiences, bridging the gap between underground culture and the general public. Depth is provided by the cinema programme and its music films and by the expositions, which evoke people to think but can also surprise. Both disciplines have their own space. Being able to interconnect all of the facilities’ different spaces makes the Melkweg highly suitable for festivals and larger events, often having a social character.
