Every spring and summer the theatre is host to a diversity of public cultural events, usually music concerts or live performances in the genres of theatre, dance, cabaret or comedy.
The Vondelpark Openluchttheater offers a stage both to young artists testing the waters, and more established performers drawing larger crowds. The performances and concerts are public and free to access for anyone, but for popular events it is possible to reserve seated places for a small fee via the Openluchttheater website.
Next to the Openluchttheater the Openluchtcafé sells drinks and finger foods during the shows.
The tradition of these seasonal public performances at the Openluchttheater was started in 1974.
