Are there any corona measures during this edition?
We closely follow national guidelines and rules in the production of our concerts. This means that there are currently no restrictions. It is possible that this will change in the run-up to the concert.

Where can I buy tickets?
Tickets are for sale online, via, until one hour before the start of the concert.

How do I get access to the concerts?
This is different from day to day.

On Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday evening you can go to TivoliVredenburg with your e-ticket and then walk around the building freely and visit all concerts. Your e-ticket is also valid for the events in Theater Kikker and Muzieklokaal.

On Thursday and Friday evenings and Saturday and Sunday afternoons you have to exchange your e-ticket for a wristband. The same applies if you have bought a passe-partout. This can be done at the festival desk. Here you will find an overview of the opening hours and the location(s) of the festival desk:

  • WO 7-9 16:30 – 22:30 Festival desk @ TivoliVredenburg
  • TH 8-9 16:30 – 22:00 Festivalbalie@ TivoliVredenburg

  • SUN 11-9 11:30 – 17:30 Festival desk @ Nijverheid
  • SUN 11-9 18:00 – 21:30 Festival desk @ TivoliVredenburg

How do the day and evening tickets work?
This year you buy a evening or afternoon ticket, that allows you access to all concerts that take place that evening or afternoon. Every day, all concerts are concentrated in one part of the city. This is the city center on Wednesday and Thursday, the south side of the city on Friday, the Cartesius area on Saturday and Sunday afternoons and TivoliVredenburg on Saturday and Sunday night.

Can I visit all concerts with my afternoon or evening ticket or passe-partout?
Yes. However, it can happen that some concerts are full. There are always plenty of other concerts that you can go to in that case. But if you would like to see a specific concert, make sure you are on time at the hall (at least 20 minutes before the start of the concert).

Can I reserve a place for the low-capacity concerts?
No, unfortunately, it is not possible to reserve a place in advance. If you would like to attend a specific concert, it is advisable to be present on time at the hall (at least 20 minutes before the start). The festival program is also structured in such a way that you can always quickly go to a different concert.

How do I get from room to room?
The easiest way of transport in Utrecht is by bicycle. But most of the venues are less than 15 minutes away on foot.

Are all rooms accessible for people with disabilities?
We strive to make the festival as accessible as possible. Almost all locations are accessible to wheelchairs and have accessible toilets or facilities for vision and hearing support. Sadly, this is not the case for the events at these locations:

  • De Nijverheid
  • De Havenloods
  • Het Hof van Cartesius
  • Muzieklokaal / Weerdsingel
  • Movement Exposed Gallery Space
  • Onderbuik
  • Pieter Baan Centrum
