Are you looking forward to discovering some great gigs in the Netherlands, but fully clueless with regards to where to start? If you are, then you are in the right place. Here are some of the best concerts that you should not miss when on a trip to the Netherlands.

Father John Misty and Jose Gonzales

The malcontent musicality and fiery wit of Father John Misty may not appear to be the ideal match to the optimistic acoustics of Jose Gonzales, but having the chance to see these artists together on the very same night is so great that it is difficult to believe they are performing live. What is best is that they are performing together at the Caprera Open Air Theater in Bloemendaal on August 06, 2019. When it comes to what to listen to, there is so much to pick from! Just be there on time and enjoy the show.


Held in August once a year on and around the canals in Amsterdam city, Grachtenfestival is one of the summer-special cultural highlights. Lasting for ten days, the Canal Festival features performances at stages by the water or even on it, as artists play music on boats and the audience listens to it from their own boats or the canal side. If you are going to pick only one concert from the stellar roster of the festival, then make it the Prinsengracht concert, which will take place near the Pulitzer Hotel in Amsterdam. The annual Prinsengracht Concert draws in big crowds, and it is expected to be the case this year also. After all, the Prinsengracht Concert is considered the main event featuring in the Grachtenfestival (Canal Festival).

Ariana Grande

What Grande has been doing in the past 12 to 24 months is brilliant. A lightweight pop artist, Ariana Grande turned into a true star of pop music; her rise to the higher echelons of fame has been as much a testament to the defiant and sensitive reaction to her traumas as it has been to music. Her newest album titled “Thank U, Next” is a musing on love, life, and on the struggles of being a lady in the twenty-first century.

She will perform live at “Ziggo Dome”, Amsterdam’s indoor arena, on August 23 and 24. Make it a point to catch her songs “7 Rings”, and “One Last Time” when at the venue on your tour Amsterdam.
