013 (Also known as Poppodium 013) is a music venue in Tilburg, the Netherlands. The venue opened in November 1998 and replaced the Noorderligt, the Bat Cave and the MuziekKantenWinkel. 013 is notable as the largest popular music venue in the southern Netherlands. The name of the venue is based on the area code of Tilburg.

There are two concert halls of which the "Main Stage" (formerly Jupiler Zaal and Dommelsch Zaal) is the largest, with a capacity of 3,000 attendees. The smaller stage (The Green Room) has a capacity of 700 attendees. After a short but thorough refurbishment, 013 reopened in November 2015: larger and more pioneering than ever.

Along with hosting a wide range of marquee acts it is notable as the venue that hosts Roadburn Festival in 2001 and every year from 2005 to 2019 (2020 being an exception due to The CO-VID19 Pandemic.). The venue has hosted several other festivals, notably Incubate, Netherlands Deathfest and Neurotic Deathfest.

In August 2011, the director of 013, Guus van Hove, died of heat exposure in the Californian Joshua Tree National Park along with his girlfriend. Van Hove had told friends he planned to visit the site of U2's The Joshua Tree album cover, which they falsely assumed to be near the location where they died.[1][2]

013 hosts the bigger acts at the annual music festivals Roadburn (stoner rock festival), Incubate Festival and Neurotic Deathfest. Also it was a home for Ayreon's live shows in 2017 and 2019, which gathered more than 9000 people from more than 50 countries.
