P60, a venue for pop music, culture and media in Amstelveen, has been enlarged. An increase in the number of visitors and performances necessitated the construction of an extension at the rear. Since it first opened in 2001, P60 has grown into a major venue with some 40,000 visitors and 160 activities each year. The new extension, which contains a sheltered loading bay, a new backstage, offices and rehearsal rooms, is to allow operations to proceed more smoothly. The demand for rehearsal space has been met in pioneering spirit by integrating studios in the new extension into the main supporting structure using the box-within-a-box principle. Dutch rock band De Dijk were the first to play in the redesigned P60 with a sell-out concert on October 16th.
