Gaudeamus presents, organises, stimulates and supports the newest music by young music pioneers. For 70 years Gaudeamus has worked hard to provide music pioneers worldwide with a stage and to bring the music of tomorrow to curious music lovers. It is impossible to imagine today’s international world of (new) music without Gaudeamus.

The annual Gaudeamus Muziekweek is the oldest music festival in the Netherlands and takes place in Utrecht since 2011. It is the international meeting place for young composers and music pioneers from all over the world. An important part of the Gaudeamus Muziekweek is the Gaudeamus award, an incentive prize for composers up to the age of 30.
