Tivoli Oudegracht
Tivoli de Helling

Tivoli was a popular music venue and cultural center in Utrecht, Netherlands. Tivoli was run by a non-profit organisation. The original organisation dated back to 1823 and functioned as a relaxing place outside the city's Stadsbuitengracht.

Tivoli had two locations: Tivoli Oudegracht 245 and Tivoli de Helling 7, which is approximately a 10 minute walk from Oudegracht. The Oudegracht location had a capacity of approximately 1000 people and the De Helling location had a capacity of 400 people. Formerly one of Hollands major venues (together with Paradiso, Paard van Troje, 013 and Melkweg), Tivoli was located in the historic premises in Utrechts city centre, and featured more than 300 productions annually. Apart from pop concerts, there were dance evenings every Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

The Oudegracht location is a Rijksmonument.

In May 2014 Tivoli closed. A large new venue, named TivoliVredenburg, replaces both Tivoli and the former Muziekcentrum Vredenburg.
