Tivoli Vredenburg is hosting the UUnited Music Festival, the largest student music festival in the Netherlands on 28 March. As a UU student, you have the opportunity to win 2 tickets.

Utrecht University and Parnassos Cultural Centre present UUnited. In TivoliVredenburg in Utrecht, student musical ensembles and alumni - such as the well-known choir Dekoor Close Harmony and the Utrechtsch Studenten Concert - will perform together with top artists such as Spinvis, Wouter Hamel, Handsome Poets, Ingmar Heytze and TV chef Rudolph van Veen. You won’t see so many students perform at such a high level in any other city!

The KOSMU consists of about 450 members, all young and talented Utrecht students who share a passion for music. Each of the eight ensembles will embark on a unique collaboration with a guest artist. For example, the Utrechtsch Studenten Concert will present a surprising show together with Spinvis, and poet Ingmar Heytze will take on the role of storyteller during the mini-Matthaüs by the Utrechts Studenten Koor en Orkest (USKO). And that’s not all… Be amazed by the beautiful Music by Oceans - a musical collaboration of oceanographer and UU employee Erik van Saboo and composer Stef Veld, or listen to Das Sound Kollektiv, Fruity Island Boys & Young Jazz Society.
