Our story

Grounds is a platform where you can experience groundbreaking, emerging, and renowned (inter)national musicians and bands across a diverse range of musical styles. At Grounds, we transition from Turkish folk to Afro beats, and from Latin to Sahara blues. With weekly concerts, Grounds is the place where you can witness prominent names from the music scene live on stage while discovering new music simultaneously.

In addition to curating live music, Grounds aims to contribute to the cultural climate in Delfshaven by providing a stage for talents from the neighborhood. We also bring music to the community by organizing open-air neighborhood events or actively participating in them.

Currently, Grounds is in the process of establishing a second stage (New Grounds) in the old HBS building in the city center, located in the Oude Westen district. Grounds is a co-initiator of the transformation of this iconic building into a significant creative hub for musicians and dancers.
