About Altstadt Eindhoven


Besides just being a friendly, fun, hip and always happening bar, Altstadt Eindhoven has live music several times a week – often free of charge. We strive to get  both new talent and acclaimed artists on our stage. Starting January 2017 Alstadt Eindhoven was chosen by the Performing Arts Fund NL (on behalf of the Dutch government) as a  Kernpodium!

All sorts of cool bands grace our stage, from the region or far beyond. From indie to rock, on to psych and electropop… As long as it’s cool! One day you’ll see HAEVN playing live. Another time you’ll catch Sparky with his Demented Are Go,  the founders of the genre Psychobilly. Even more “out of the box” is De Likt, who played just about every major Dutch festival in 2016 – or for something altogether different, The Slow Show, with their layered, epic indie sound.

In addition to these “regular” concerts there’s more, for example Lichting, the line of programming that Altstadt Eindhoven sets up in cooperation with the Effenaar. During Lichting concerts you hear and see fresh (inter-)national acts, discovered by our programmers at showcase festivals and the smaller stages of major festivals. Lichting is electronica, indie, rock and synthpop.

Nieuwe Namen (New Names) is the programming line that allows you to enjoy shows from young, talented bands, completely free of charge. We’re not kidding! Our programmers select only the acts that are most likely to break through in the near future. We’ve done this previously (and for free as well) with Zaterdagavond Live (Saturday Night Live), during which acts including The Brahms, Indian Askin, The Great Communicators and Lakshmi have all played.

(Foundation) Stichting Altstadt Live

In September 2014, (Foundation) Stichting Altstadt Live officially began programming concerts at Altstadt Eindhoven, with which St.AL has a partnership. The foundation has also focused on marketing, communication and (financial) administration. Above all else, St.AL continually sets higher standards for itself with regards to programming.

In the meantime, the backstage area of Altstadt Eindhoven and the lighting have already undergone a massive metamorphosis and we are working hard to upgrade (other) technical specifications. Since its inception, St.AL has been recruiting people for the functions of host, light- / sound engineers and so on. All this results in increasing professionalism with regard to the programming, ticket sales, PR and existing (technical) facilities, which both artists and the public reap the fruits of.

Starting January 2017, Alstadt Eindhoven was chosen by the Performing Arts Fund NL (on behalf of the Dutch government) as Kernpodium!
