The Melkweg is a popular music venue as well as a cultural center in Amsterdam

Melkweg Amsterdam is a popular live music venue. It is also a well-known, huge cultural center in Amsterdam. Melkweg is known for its broad and diverse pop culture. It is a location for several purposes for a wide variety of audiences. Each year, hundreds of concerts, club nights, (music) films, theatre shows, expositions and multidisciplinary events are being hosted at the Melkweg. Together, all those events attract more than 470,000 visitors.

The venue is in the last remaining factory building remaining in the Amsterdam canal ring. The building of Melkweg used to be a milk factory, which is where the club got its name from. ‘Melkweg’ translates to ‘Milky Way’ from Dutch.

In 1973, Melkweg Amsterdam was permanently turned into a cultural playground. This was originally just a temporary project, a place for young people to hang out and enjoy culture during the summer. This proved to be successful, which is why they decided to continue with Melkweg. Over the past 40 years, the building has seen many big changes. Nowadays, it has two concert halls, a cinema, a theatre and an exposition area. All of the different areas can be used separately for their own purposes, or they can be combined as one big cultural center.
