December 2014 Gebr. de Nobel in Leiden opened its doors in early December and the public embraces this music venue from the start. Reactions were even better than we hoped; the building feels familiar, it works and the acoustics are fantastic. Along with the lineup for the next few months the venue promises to be a success.
Blogger Leidse Glibber reported "Everything works, not too big and not too small, the atmosphere a real pop temple should have, insanely good acoustics and a mix between 2014 and long gone." The Blog MuziekGezien and news broadcaster Unity TV Nieuws paid attention. News broadcaster VPRO 3voor12 The Hague completed her triptych after the opening. Architecture websites like Architectenweb, Archello and Architizer gave a project presentation. The British band Will and the People who performed during the opening, tweeted: "Wow !! Last night in Leiden Gebr. De nobel was special. What a great new venue. Thanks to everyone who sweated with us !! xxx "
