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.

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

Witnessed a security throw a tiny 18 year old girl to the floor for being drunk. Completely unacceptable. Will never ever return. Fire this man.

Sounds it's good as well as stage view. But what makes this place great is that it's in amsterdam downtown...few minutes walking from the centre and from restaura ts!
