  • This is a smaller gig/concert hall. On top of the ticket price a membership fee has to be paid, this can be done on line beforehand. Take print out to door with your ticket. Plenty of lockers (2 euros...  more »
  • My first experience with the Melkweg was in the summer of 1981. It's still going and is bigger and better than ever. A friendly staffer allowed me through the concert area even though it was not open ...  more »

  • This venue is an excellent place for the hosting of music events. I visited for a reggae Easter special event. The sound engineer(s) know their trade well and the quality of the sound setup is the best I've ever experienced. Clear sounding instruments, voice mics offering near to listening perfection. This made my whole experience a very pleasant one listening to artists who I had never heard content from before. And I was also impressed by the fact that between a number of band changes the quality of sound did not deteriorate throughout the evening. Because the venue isn't massive it can be filled relatively easily by people but that's not to say that the place is tight and uncomfortable - not so. Access to bar is good, glass collecting staff are on their game too. Door entry was very relaxed and passed through very smoothly. As is typically the case with music venues like this they seem to thrill in having dark interior (black walls), walking hand in hand with toilets that are not managed or attended to keenly during the event. In the mens loos there was one overflowing urinal. The ladies was described as disgusting! Those are my only complaints
  • I've just gone to a Beast in Black concert, it was awesome! The band was amazing, the crowd was amazing as well. The only downside was the sound, with power metal it is very important to hear the singer the loudest. But this wasn't really the case, the instruments overpowered the singer quite a bit.. But besides that our night was amazing!! Love the atmosphere that was there that evening thanks to the small crowd as well!
