A Hague institution offering live music (bands/djs etc) which has seen some great artists playing in recent times. Well worth checking out the annual 'Music in My Head' festival which celebrates a range of up-and-coming bands from different genres under one umbrella.

You probably wouldn't associate the usually serious and austere city of The Hague with unfettered summer hedonism, but at the adjacent resort of Schevingen is the Dutch answer to Blackpool beach.
Check out Crazy Pianos, for example, for an irrevent mix of live music, comedy and the drunken teenage antics you know oh-so-well from back home. Frankly, it's just a great bit of harmless fun in an otherwise slightly dull part of the world.
Strandweg 21-29, Scheveningen
