Below is a short outline of the festival, as published on the European Festivals Association website.

Established in 1982, the 10-day Utrecht Early Music Festival has been the flagship production of the Organisatie Oude Muziek, with over 250 concerts and related activities in the centre of the city, both at TivoliVredenburg and other interesting venues. Every year, a special series of over 60 free fringe concerts, as well as various workshops and masterclasses, open up this festival to young talent from all over the world. The goal of the festival is to keep the adventure of early music alive.
