EKKO is a place for established artists who reinvent themselves within particular niches, but also provides a space to grow for new talent. This happens at our main location at Bemuurde Weerd, but also at other locations in the city of Utrecht:
The biggest part of our concerts and club nights takes place at our own location at Bemuurde Weerd, in the city centre of Utrecht. A faithful dog, our living room, open every weekend. Is ready to serve you any genre, during evening hours as well as the nighttime.

De Nijverheid is a cultural free port in Utrecht’s Werkspoorkwartier, which houses ateliers and creative workspaces for artists, designers and creatives. One of the rougher spaces in Utrecht where artists get the space to create, experiment and exhibit. Very appropriate for anything punky and other slightly gritty musical material. We also celebrated the infamous ‘Anti Climax’ new year’s eve party there.
ACU is a political cultural centre in the city centre of Utrecht. Has a very rich cultural and political history, including a squatters’ past, and is completely run by volunteers. The building was once a car garage, now it functions as a cafe, vegan restaurant and concert location. Currently completely car-free, with EKKO programming a concert there every now and then.

De Kromme Haring is an intimate brewery, taproom and concertroom in one. They experiment with the craft of making beer, we like to experiment there with the craft of programming music. They are located next to Vechtclub XL in Kanaleneiland – it will cost you a bit of cycling to get there, but in exchange you will get a very special location: artists perform between tanks filled with brewer’s yeast.

Het Stadsklooster originated from a neighborhood initiative in the Utrecht district of Lombok. The organization is housed in the former Antonius Church, which was built in 1902-1903. Several years ago, when the church was in danger of being sold, a group of people from the neighborhood joined forces to preserve the site. Het Stadsklooster now organizes inspiring events at the intersection of culture, creativity and meaning.
