For general info you can contact us through this page. Please do not use this page to request a show for your band. Unfortunately we get so many requests from bands that we simply can’t process them. If you want to organise an event at the Vrankrijk, please come to our meeting which is in the bar on the first Monday evening of each month at 7pm. Otherwise you can try contacting one of the regular groups that organise events here.Put Vrankrijk and other Amsterdam attractions into our Amsterdam trip itinerary planner, and watch your holiday take shape.
Some of these groups are:
+ Autonomia Productions https://autonomiapromotions.wordpress.com/ (mainly punk / hardcore)
+ DIY Shows Netherlands https://www.facebook.com/DIYshowsNL/ (mainly punk / hardcore)
+ WTF Queer Wednesday https://www.facebook.com/WTF-QUEER-Wednesdays-1299409643450035 (queer. Also one Saturday per month)
+ Rauwe School https://rauweschool.nl/ (hiphop)
We often get asked by visitors to the city if we can provide accommodation. Unfortunately we cannot help you with this. Your best option is to ask any friends you might have in the city to help you with this. If you don’t know anyone in the city then you’ll just have to try hostels / campings / squats and so on. If you are a traveling band playing at our venue, our organisers will usually arrange for you to stay somewhere close to the Vrankrijk.
