This edition; From Brazil to Ghana with Samba Roots ans Berima Amo!

Every now and then, we find it too quiet in our hall. Our rugged space calls for a dose of musical racket at Markt Centraal! So we gather the tastiest bands, whether they’re emerging or established, ranging from reggae to punk to hip-hop, from Amsterdam and sometimes beyond. We put them on the menu so they can rock live for you on our beautiful stages or in the deepest corners of the monument. Of course, all while enjoying irresistibly delicious food and an essential drink. Because a healthy dose of Market Racket nourishes everyone’s body and soul!
