Melkweg Amsterdam

Melkweg is a music venue located in the heart of Amsterdam, Netherlands. The venue’s name, which translates to “Milky Way” in English, is a nod to its origins as a former milk factory. Established in 1970, Melkweg has evolved into one of Amsterdam’s most iconic cultural centres, hosting a wide range of events, including live music, dance performances, film screenings, and art exhibitions.

I’ve had the opportunity to shoot from the ska-punk of Russkaja to the punk rock legends Bad Religion, the heavy metal powerhouse Mastodon, and the thrilling reunion of Brazilian metal icons Max & Iggor Cavalera on their Back to Roots tour.
