Paradiso Amsterdam: events with international popstars
Let’s start with the temple of pop: Paradiso. This former church left its Christian purposes behind in 1968 and converted itself to the religion of Music. Ever since, Paradiso has been one of the most popular music halls of The Netherlands. Many national and international artists have performed in the big hall, for example: Al Green, Skunk Anansie, Lady Gaga, Billy Idol and Willy DeVille. Paradiso has two halls; the big hall (with space for 1500 people) and the little hall (space for 250 people). Although the big hall can harbour many visitors, it still has an intimate atmosphere to it. You can find Paradiso at the Weteringschans, near the Leidseplein.

De Melkweg Amsterdam: events and underground-concerts
De Melkweg means the Milky Way. It is called like that because the building had formerly been a milk factory. Nowadays you can attend concerts of well-known pop artists and underground performers.
