TivoliVredenburg is an architectural wonder in the heartland of The Netherlands; a musical city within a city. Right in the center of Utrecht only a stone's throw away of the Central Station and the lively old town.
TivoliVredenburg offers not just one, but five unique concert halls under one roof, catering to all possible events, from concerts to tv recordings. The five differing rooms of the venue can accommodate a combined total of up to 7.500 people. Yet as grand and overwhelming the whole site may be each separate room is marked by its own intimate and personal atmosphere.
The venue offers a podium to all musical worlds: classical, pop, dance, jazz for families and everything in between. One of the facility’s unique features provided in each room, is that the speaker or performer on stage will never be more than 20 meters away from the public!
