Le Guess Who? takes pace across 20 locations in the city center of Utrecht; ranging from churches and galleries to theaters and pop venues. Most are within walking distance from each other. Here are a couple highlighted.

TivoliVredenburg isn’t just a music venue – it’s an imposing architectural structure that encompasses no less than five concert halls next to various other spaces with installations, exhibitions installations, merchandise and projections. You can also find some food stalls in TivoliVredenburg, a café called 'Gegeven Paard' and restaurant 'Danel' downstairs.

TivoliVredenburg is located right next to Utrecht Central Station and it’s also the place where you’ll need to exchange your ticket for a wristband to ensure entrance to festival venues.

EKKO is Utrecht’s stage for upcoming and promising (niche) acts. Therefore, they’re an excellent partner for Le Guess Who?. In their café, EKKO also offers an affordable and tasty menu with vegetables playing a leading role. It's also a nice place to sit down and relax for a little bit before you head to the next performance.  

At previous editions, acts like Ulrika Spacek, Whitney, Amber Arcades, Prefuse 73, Car Seat Headrest, Ought, Sleaford Mods and Föllakzoid all played EKKO. It's located near other festival venues like Moira and ACU, and within walking distance of TivoliVredenburg.

Dom Church
The overwhelming Dom Church is the first Dutch gothic cathedral, dating back to the 13th century. With its 112 meters it is not just the highest building in Utrecht, it is also the highest church tower in The Netherlands. In 2017, Utrecht's most majestic and historic icon will finally be part of Le Guess Who? Festival.

The cathedral architecture provides a stunning setting for concerts and creates a phenomenal acoustic for choirs and acoustic music as well. On the opening night of the festival, Thursday, 9 November, the overwhelming music of Grouper (in collaboration with visual artist Paul Clipson) and Bulgarian women's choir Le Mystère des Voix Bulgares) will fill the entire structure of Cathedral.

The Dom Church is also located close to other venues like Theater Kikker, Stadsschouwburg and within walking distance of TivoliVredenburg. The monastery garden is also worth to pay a visit, being a green oasis in the city centre.

dB’s is much more than just a music venue – it’s also home to 17 rehearsal rooms, and a recording studio called Moskou. Therefore, it’s a popular hangout for local musicians. The fact that dB’s also serves a good amount of specialty beers surely helps as well of course.

Note that you can also very easily take a train from Utrecht Central Station that stops at Utrecht Zuilen, right next to dB’s.

Located next to the magnificent De Helling, which is also a popular Le Guess Who? venue, is LE:EN: an Asian restaurant and bar with an industrial feel. In their restaurant, LE:EN serves bites and dishes to share with friends and a nice place to sit back, relax and sip on some sakes or Asian beers.

NEEL is the space behind the restaurant, which Le Guess Who? mostly uses for solo performances and acts that are linked to the program taking place at De Helling. During the Le Guess Who?, LE:EN also offers a discount on meals when showing your festival wristband. Keep an eye out on our Treasure Guide for more info.
