AFAS Live opened its doors in 2001 as the Heineken Music Hall. Now, the concert hall is known worldwide for offering a total experience that combines live music and entertainment. According to experts, the Black Box (large hall) at AFAS Live has incomparable acoustics. The Beat Box on the second floor is the place to be for the famous afterparties, where you can relax as a DJ plays music in the style of the main act. This is also the only concert hall in the Netherlands to have been nominated several times for the coveted Pollstar Award for best international concert venue.
