The Northern part of Amsterdam is a great playground for creative people, full of ‘underground’ initiatives and artists communities. I was lucky to be one of ten musicians who moved to a block in the area in 2011 to build one such community,’De Muziekstraat’. A stage to perform our work was founded on top of a gorgeous company building and our series of summer concerts grew more and more successful without losing its cosy ‘living room’ atmosphere, with a maximum of 100 seats per concert. There’s 10 concerts from June to September and the program is exploring the borders of jazz and world music, representing the very interesting, multinational scene from Amsterdam and guests from abroad. So: great music, stunning views, cosy atmosphere, a neighbourhood yet to be discovered… can’t get much better than this :). More information and tickets through the website
It’s recommended to book beforehand, since the concerts usually sell out!
Tip: you can also enjoy a delicious 3-course dinner before the concert. That one needs to be reserved through the website.
