bimhuis and corona

What do the corona measures mean for the BIMHUIS and your concert visit? Read it here.


In the press conference on Tuesday, November 3, the Dutch government announced new measures in the battle against the corona virus. As a result, all shows until November 18 are cancelled. All ticket buyers have received an email from us. No mail? Send us a message.

Mandatory face masks

On the advice of the Amsterdam-Amstelland safety region, wearing a face mask is mandatory at the BIMHUIS and the rest of the buliding from Tuesday evening 29 September, 6:00 PM. We would like to ask you to put on your face mask upon arrival and to keep wearing it until you sit down. In short: sitting is mask off, moving is mask on!

Besides that, we ask you to keep the following instructions in mind, when visiting the BIMHUIS:

  • Do you have a cold or do you have corona-related complaints? Stay at home.
  • Keep 1.5 meters distance from others.
  • Only come with people from your own household.
  • Stick to your timeslot – arriving too early is unnecessary, arriving too late is inconvenient.
  • Stick to the indicated walking routes and directions.
  • Take your jacket with you into the concert hall.
  • Bags larger than an A4 are not allowed.
  • You can only pay by card.
  • Be patient for and with each other.

Are you worrying about the air in the BIMHUIS? No need to: Our air exchange system uses 100% outside air (there’s no circulation). In the one and a half meter setup with a maximum of 73 seats, around three times the air capacity that would be needed for this number is used: it is blown in and extracted for a maximum of 200 people.

How many spots are there in the series Your Saturday Getaway?

There’s a maximum of 73 seats. This can differ per show.

Can I visit two shows in one night?

Yes you can, but you do have to buy two tickets and you will have to enter the building again. Unfortunately it is not possible to stay in the BIMHUIS between two concerts.

What about those timeslots?

The timeslots are there so that everyone can feel safe and that sufficient distance can easily be kept. So please do arrive at your designated time, so we can keep it a pleasant experience for everyone.

What if I don't arrive on time?

Well, it can happen. Unfortunately, if the concert has already started, you can no longer enter. Otherwise, we ask you to wait until everyone is inside and you can sit at the back. But it is better to just arrive on time.

Can I just drop by?

Unfortunately, we have to adhere to a security protocol. That means that spontaneous visits are not possible.

Can I enter with my press, relationship or bimhuis card?

Unfortunately that is not possible. Because the concerts are now very exclusive, there are no discounts or free tickets. You can of course just buy a ticket!
