The Gashouder is a place of extremes: it's the home of Awakenings. With its circular shape, pillar-free interior and wrought iron roof construction, the Gashouder is the most distinctive venue in Amsterdam. No one who attends an event here will ever forget it. It was built in 1902 and at the time it was the largest gasholder in Europe. The gas was stored on top of the Gashouder in a steel tank that extended telescopically to a height of forty meters.
How does the deposit system on all cups, cans and bottles work?
During our events we will be working with a deposit system on all cups, cans and bottles we give out at the bars. We would like to collect as many as possible, to make sure they can be recycled!
This is how it works: 1. At the entrance, after scanning your ticket, you’ll receive 1 free recycle token from us. 2. With each drink you order, you hand in your recycle token or an empty cup, can or bottle. 3. When you’re leaving the venue or you don’t want to have a new drink, you can hand in your empty cup / can or bottle at the bar or at one of the other recycle points. The bar staff will give you your recycle token in return. 4. There is an unique code on the recycle token, after the show you can go to out website and fill out the code, then you have a chance of winning prizes!
On this page you can fill out the code of your recycle token.
