About 013

013, number for music

Unforgettable shows, amazing dance events, festivals, furious stand-up comedians, one-off projects and even fresh, young talents get the chance to perform. It is easy to say that 013 is a unique venue in the center of Tilburg. 013 ("Oh-thirteen") consists of three halls. Large and medium-sized auditoria (Jupiler Hall and Small Hall) and a smaller space for new/specialist music trends (Stage01). 013 also contains a studio and several rehearsal rooms. Spatially the building meshes with the Tivoli parking structure as one large built mass which screens off the street and cleanly marks off the park. The expanded metal screen of the parking facility is extended on one side to project in front of the facade of 013. Facades and roof are clad in black EPDM rubber filled with glass wool and sporting real CDs on its surface.

In 1998, 013 was the first concerthall in The Netherlands which was newly built for the sole purpose of live music. Since then artists like Robbie Williams, Nine Inch Nails, Muse, Alice Cooper, The Roots, Tool, Blondie, Damien Rice, Kraftwerk, Simple Minds, Snoop Dogg, 30 Seconds To Mars, Slayer, Queens Of The Stone Age, Sigur Rós, Editors, Interpol, Armin van Buuren, Pablo Francisco, Ice Cube, Chuck Berry and more have performed in 013. 013 appeals to all lovers of pop music from The Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and sometimes even the rest of the world, like during the internationally praised Roadburn Festival. Quality, public opinion and affordability are of great importance. 013 organises about 400 activities with an amount of more than 230.000 visitors each year.
