What to do about extremely loud dance music from nearby club?

I'm in the city center in Groningen, the Netherlands. It is almost 6.30am. For hour on hour now, I've been listening to throbbing bass from the dance club across the way, and I haven't slept all night. This loud music seems to be a new thing. What should I do?

I live on the second floor (that is, there are two floors between me and the ground) in an apartment that is one street away from a dance club. I've lived here for four years, and never have I heard music from the there. But tonight there has been constant, throbbing bass from the club, such that it is impossible to sleep. The whole building is vibrating with the bass.
I'm afraid they've upgraded their sound system or something, and this is going to be the new status quo every Friday and Saturday night. If so, I'm going to go insane. What are the laws regarding noise in the Netherlands? Who do I complain to? Must I contemplate moving? I'm an American living here, so I'm not even sure where to start.
