NIEUWE NOR is a popmusic venue situated in the center of the city of Heerlen in the very south of the Netherlands, on close proximity to both the German (5km to the east) and Belgian (20km to the south and 30 km to the west) border.The venue is situated and subsidized by the municipality of Heerlen, a city with 90.000 inhabitants. The main service area is the region of Parkstad with 240.000 inhabitants in total. Heerlen lies close to cities like Aachen (15km), Maastricht (25km) and Liège (50 km), Also, big Belgian cities with airports like Antwerp/Bruxelles and the German Rurh area (with Köln, Düsseldorf and Dortmund) are within the range of an hour drive. This gives the venue a unique position for international acts that have fan bases in these three countries. 

NIEUWE NOR (which is Dutch for "new jail", named after the first location of the venue, a prison, fourty years ago) is a relatively new club with a capacity of 350 visitors. It was built in 2006 beyond the small cultural café which suits as a foyer now. The club has an industrial look and feel and is known for it's warm and friendly crew and... is famous among Dutch artists because of the good and healthy meals of our Surinamese cook Romeo and the vintage Super Nintendo in the backstage. Because of its position between two other countries, NIEUWE NOR  has an international focus. With about 120 concerts and dance events, it doesn't only brings new Dutch pop club acts, but also new international electronic music (techno, drum & bass, dubstep) and live concerts (from EBM/New wave to Rock, from Singer-Songwriter to Hiphop. Some of the artists that have played at NIEUWE NOR since the opening of the new venue in December 2006 are: Therapy?, Levellers, New Model Army, Anne Clark, Luka Bloom, Delinquent Habits, Terror, Infadels, Tracy Bonham, etc. In electronic music DJ's and live-acts like Noisia, André Galluzzi, Pan-Pot, Speedy J, N-Type, Walsh, James Ruskin, Billy Nasty and many more brought the enthousiastic visitors in ecstasy. Besides the venue's main hall there's a seperate foyer/café where small performances with low sound levels can take place.
