Become a friend

The Concertgebouw has many friends: among others, performers, audience members, employees and other cultural organisations, both at home and abroad. But did you know that you too can become a Friend of the Concertgebouw? By becoming one, you’ll show that you really care about what we are and what we do. And you’ll also be making a modest but very welcome financial contribution.


How to become a Friend

  • A memberships cost € 85 and is personal.
  • Booking your membership is automatically done when you book your subscription.
  • As soon as you have become a Friend, you can use the automatically sent Friend code to book your free Friends Performance in a separate transaction.

Your benefits as Friend

  • You can book your tickets before the official start of ticket sales (online or by appointment).  
  • You are the first to discover the new season. At a season preview presentation exclusively for Friends, Artistic Director Jeroen Vanacker and the artistic team introduce the season and provide an explanation. 
  • You are entitled to one or two tickets in category 1 for one of the three Friends performances. And afterwards you can have a cosy chat about it with other Friends over a complimentary drink.
  • You get free visits to the Concertgebouw Circuit for one year.
  • You are the first to hear the latest Concertgebouw news.
  • You support the Makers of the Concertgebouw with your membership and follow their creative process from the front row.
  • Friends get 50% discount on the opening performance by the Junge Deutsche Philharmonie on 13 Sep and can attend the opening of our seasonal artist's exhibition afterwards.
  • On one afternoon of your choice, enjoy -50% on a lunch (excluding drinks) in our Concertgebouw Café*. You can pick up your discount voucher at the counter in the Entrance Hall from September 2024.
  • * This discount is only valid for Friends and can be redeemed from Friday 13 September 2024 to Sunday 23 June 2025 during our afternoon shift.

Friends fans

‘For us, this new season’s brochure is more than ever the herald of a new start, of looking forward to coming home to the Concertgebouw. Our diaries are waiting to be filled. And as Friends we have the privilege of being first off the mark. We can hardly wait!’

— Colette Heintz – De Bree

‘How could I make my wife and myself any happier than by remaining a Friend of “our” Concertgebouw? We already have a whole array of top performances that we – as enthusiasts – would love to see live entered in our diary. And in plenty of time. That gives us peace of mind, right from the start of the season. The fact that we, as Friends, moreover enjoy advantageous terms and excellent service, is like music to our ears. Highly recommended!'

— Wim Ingels
