a place for curious music lovers

Pllek Live Stage is Pllek’s concept for curious music lovers. Every event we present two unique live bands underscored by daring DJ sets. An energetic, unexpected and exotic trip through non-western music genres and contemporary (live) electronics. Pllek Live Stage is a night of discovery.

Bold and fresh, the stage (next to the Pllek restaurant) offers great acoustics, an amazing view and a rugged yet welcoming vibe. A solid D&B sound system gives Pllek Live Stage an ooomph that will be sure to make a crowd of over 300 move and shake.
