The Art of the Season

The word festival usually indicates a series of never-ending parties and pumping beats all through the night. Fortunately, the palette is much more colourful than that. We collected some of the best cultural festivals of the season, presenting a number of real fascinating programmes for art enthusiasts. 

Paloznak Jazz Picnic

Friendly atmosphere, a wide range of fine gastronomical treats and excellent musicians are awaiting you at Jazz Picnic with four stages and twenty concerts. Although the original rustic charm of the gathering is preserved, word-class musicians are bringing you the concert experience you long for at a festival. Between 3 and 5 August, see you in Paloznak!

27th Valley of Arts Festival

The biggest art festival of the country, organized between 21 and 30 July in Kapolcs and the neighboring Vigántpetend and Taliándörögd presents close 1200 programs and exciting productions this year: concerts, plays, literary talks, social gatherings and interactive games. Besides a number of highly praised Hungarian artists, you can see internationally acclaimed performers, too, such as Nouvelle Vague, Deluxe or Pink Martini.

26th Zemplén Festival

Between 11 and 19, the Zemplén Festival awaits you with a series of colourful programs for the 26th time: classical music, jazz, literature, theatre, dance, exhibitions and trips – make sure you don’t miss out on the exciting cultural happening!


The picturesque town of Veszprém will once again host one of the best music festivals of the region: this year’s exclusive line-up includes such names as legendary Tom Jones, Heather Small or Richard Bona & Mandekan Cubano. Feel the vibes of summer between 12 and 15 July!


V4 Fest will be organised for the fifth time this season: theatrical productions, concerts and tons of interesting programs await culture lovers, right next to the Danube between 5 and 9 July. Enjoy the colourful performances, the great atmosphere and devote some time to appreciate the many cultural values of the country.
