Effenaar is the largest pop venue of Eindhoven, existing since 1971. We host the entire range of pop music: rock, hip-hop, indie, singer-songwriters, dance and festivals. The rooms have an capacity of 1.200 and 350 people. Musicians from all over the world play at the venue.
The main reason for the Effenaar to organize events, is to entertain people and give them a cultural experience; share the love for music. A couple acts that played at the Effenaar in the past are: Editors, Stromae, Calexico, Joy Division, Ramones, Sonic Youth, Queens of the Stone Age, Pearl Jam, Sex Pistols, R.E.M., The Cure and even The Red Hot Chili Peppers.
The Effenaar Café is in the same building, where they serve fresh prepared food and drinks, for a very reasonable price. The restaurant-café characterizes itself by its healthy menu in a creative environment.
Effenaar is located at the Dommelstraat 2. A 5 minute walk from the Eindhoven Main Train Station.
