The venue started out as a youth center back in 1972 and ever since, it has never stopped innovating. In 2003, the building has been renovated and modernized by the renowned Dutch architect, Rem Koolhaas. The venue has two concert halls, a foyer and the Paardcafé –a unique location that offers the perfect ambience for both casually social and business meetings. The main hall has a capacity of approximately 1100 attendees and the small hall has one of about 300 people, while the Paardcafé has room for about 200 attendees at a social gathering. 

Many national and international artists have performed on the stages of Paard van Troje. To name a few: Blood Red Shoes, Florence and the Machine, Editors, Fun Lovin’ Criminals, Limp Bizkit, The Tallest Man On Earth, Caro Emerald, Splendid and Jonathan Jeremiah and DJ’s and live acts such as Modeselektor, Armin van Buuren, DJ Shadow, Michel de Hey and Calvin Harris. And this is just the tip of the iceberg. 

Over the past few years, Paard has hosted a great variety of business events. From debates organized by the Dutch political parties, to live recordings of national television shows; from annual celebrations of companies and embassies to networking events or congresses.
