On May 18, 2016, De Doelen celebrated its 50th anniversary. The building on the Schouwburgplein, which is generally regarded as the final piece of the reconstruction and the start of the cultural reconstruction, means a lot, to a lot of people. Since its opening in 1966, millions of people have visited De Doelen and tens of thousands of concerts and gatherings have taken place. A rich history that should not be lost.

Visit through the link the website and step into the time machine. We collect the most beautiful personal stories and memorable anecdotes from visitors, musicians and (former) employees from 1966 to the present on this collective memory of De Doelen. See which artists have already been in the Doelen!
