Holland is filled with many excellent music venues. Amongst the oldest of these, the Concertgebouw stands out as one of the finest concert halls in the world. Other notable venues in the Dutch music scene include De Doelen, Paradiso, Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ, and the Lucent Danstheater.
Often, these venues host impressive dance and music festivals, such as Crossing Border, North Sea Jazz Festival, Symfonica Electronica Festival, Amsterdam Dance Event and the Canal Festival.
Due to the easy-to-reach and acclaimed locations and events, many international names from within the music industry visit Holland on a regular basis. These venues are also the stomping grounds of Holland’s very own talented singers, musicians, DJs and producers, such as DJ’s Tiësto, Armin van Buuren, Afrojack and Junkie XL, and performers Eva Simons, Kyteman, Ilse de Lange and Caro Emerald.
