On the Roof 2024

We are happy to confirm that we will be back between June and September 2024 - Watch this space!


About On the Roof

Magical moments

When the sun goes down behind Central Station, warm sounds caress your ears, coming from a rooftop in Amsterdam-Noord. The spectacular setting and intimate atmosphere of our summer venue form the perfect conditions for artists to create magical moments in a dynamic interaction with the audience.

International flavors of Amsterdam

For over 10 years, On the Roof has been home to the colorful, diverse music scene of Amsterdam and special guests from abroad every year between June and September. Artists you may know or would like to discover, are exploring and sometimes crossing the borders of jazz, global sounds and improvised music in authentic intimate performances. What started as a somewhat crazy idea born out of passion has become a faithful summer rendezvous to discover new music, hear your favorite artists, enjoy the beautiful sunset and meet with friends.

Double-bill concerts, family matinées and young creators program

Since 2022, in order to present even more variety we have introduced double-bill concerts, Sunday afternoon family concerts and a new support program for Young Creators. On this website, you can read more about our program, get to know the the musicians and look back on previous editions.
