de Doelen Studio welcomes Dutch jazz and soul talent with new concert series Aretha's

Aretha's: our latest jazz and soul concert series, named after, yes, Aretha Franklin, the legendary soul singer who performed with us in De Doelen in 1968. As a tribute to the one and only Queen of Soul, jazz and soul talent from Dutch soil is given a stage in the Doelen Studio every Saturday evening.

Alexander van Popta, Lady Shaynah, Sarah-Jane and Brintex Collective have previously been guests at Aretha's. Entrance is always free. Go to for the current programme.

De Doelen Studio
Surprising, current & local are the keywords that characterize the Studio. But also cutting-edge, new and rugged. During the day a coffee bar, hang-out, flex desk, book club. In the evenings, the place to be for live jazz, karaoke, hip-hop, artist talks and concert introductions. Smallest stage, big fun. In the middle of the city on the bustling Schouwburgplein, the smallest Doelen stage is open!
