Amsterdam is not just sex and drugs, it is also full of Rock & Roll (and just about every other musical genre), so welcome to Live Around Amsterdam, where we put live music FIRST!

Who’s playing live music when you’re in Amsterdam? Take a look at the Gig List.
Check out our Photo Gallery featuring some of the bands we've Seen On Stage.
If you’re looking for somewhere with live music close to where you are staying, our Music Venue page has all of our favourite places, listed by district with a map, so you should find something nearby.

A lot of bars in Amsterdam can show live football on TV; all the English Premier League matches are carried live by the local cable TV, but if you want English commentary, or sports like rugby and cricket, look for a bar with a Sky Sports sign. You can find some of our favourites on our Sport Bars page.
