Q-factory Amsterdam is the host of Countdown Café which hosts free live music events.

Countdown Café is a music program on Dutch radio with a lot of (classic) rock and live performances by domestic and foreign artists. It is the derivative of Countdown (the Netherlands), the TV program of the public broadcaster Veronica. That started in 1978 as a music program with a lot of attention for live performances and interviews with artists. In 1982, Veronica radio boss Lex Harding formed the TV version in a hit show with clips and performances by artists from the Top 40. The original approach, however, led to the radio version Countdown Café. This radio show started at Veronica April 1982 on Hilversum 3 with Lex Harding, Annet van Trigt and Kees Baars as presenters and interviewers.
