And keep the adventure in music!

With a heart full of jazz history and a nose for young talent, the BIMHUIS stands for excellent, adventurous music. For more than 45 years the breaking of rules, the demolition of holy houses and the pushing of musical boundaries has been welcomed here out loud. But the BIMHUIS is more than a musical sanctuary: the intimate setting and the most beautiful view of Amsterdam make every evening in the BIMHUIS one to remember. A unique place in the Netherlands that has to last for a long time.Do you feel the same? Become our Friend, donate or become an exclusive member of NEWTHING!

NEWTHING is the circle of support of the BIMHUIS where space for innovation is central. NEWTHING supports the BIMHUIS, but is not from the BIMHUIS; Members have a high right to self-determination. The main objective is to support the work of young professional musicians, to give them the space to develop their own artistic signature and to disseminate it. This concerns projects that cannot be funded from exploitation. You support NEWTHING by means of an annual gift of € 2500 for a period of five years.
