Ticket Sales

You can buy tickets online, any time of day or night! But before you do, you need to create an account. The order process is slightly different this year than in years past – first, add all your concerts to your shopping basket and next, select your seats/tickets.

Concert waiting lists

If a concert’s sold out, you can put your name on a waiting list by calling the Muziekgebouw box office (up to a day before the concert). We’ll get in touch with you right away if tickets become available.

Methods of payment

You can pay for your tickets using iDeal, MasterCard, VISA or a Podium gift voucher.

How do I order with a festival discount?

  • First add ALL the concerts you want to attend to your shopping basket, then choose your seats/prices. Otherwise, the discount will not be applied correctly.
  • The discount applies to an equal number of seats per concert. You can book extra seats for certain concerts, but the discount will not apply to the extra seats.
  • When booking tickets, the website always displays the best price first.

Under 30? Then grab yourself a ticket to the Cello Biennale for just €12.50! Please note that only a limited number of Early-Bird tickets are available for each concert.
