* Ticket holders are already informed via e-mail about the fulfillment of tickets bought

If you have tickets for a concert that does not take place in De Doelen, please contact the concert hall for updates.

Ticket sales temporarily suspended

We are currently investigating how the orchestra can give concerts in de Doelen after the summer. Because it is not yet known how many visitors we will be allowed to admit per concert, we temporarily stopped ticket sales. We try to keep the planned programming intact as much as possible within the applicable restrictions. Tickets already purchased remain valid. If you already have tickets for concerts in the new season, you will receive a personal message from us as soon as more is known.

Ticket scheme: Save your ticket - enjoy later

With ‘Save your ticket, enjoy later’, the cultural industry hopes that ticket holders will attend their favourite venue or event at a later date. The basic principle of the scheme is that the ticket value is retained. The next weeks, we will implement the ticket scheme. Once more information is available, we will contact ticket holders about the fulfillment of tickets bought. More information about the ticket scheme can be found here.
