Welcome to Muziekgebouw aan 't IJ


The Muziekgebouw – founded in 2005 – is the most important stage in the Netherlands for contemporary music. We offer more than 250 concerts per season in a great variety of genres including classical and electronic music, global and jazz. The ceiling, walls, chairs and floor of our main concert hall are all flexible and moveable, which make it a very suitable hall for intimate chamber music as well as bigger ensembles. Musicians and critics acknowledge the excellent acoustics. Visit a concert and convince yourself.
