Budapest festivals mostly take place on weekends. Many of the festivals are free to enter, while others have a very affordable entry fee. The festival venues or dates may change due to various circumstances (the festival got bigger, the venue was not available, the weather forecast is not favorable, etc.). Please double check the venues and dates of festivals before attending them. Festival organizers in Budapest reserve the right to change festival details (dates, venues). Our Budapest festival guide is a guide only.


  1. We were very lucky to come across the A Cappella festival in Buda on 13/6 and really enjoyed it. We were unable to understand what was being said but are very interested to hear more by the last group that sang. It was a local group (judging by the applause) of 5 men who sang contemporary and pop music. We didn’t hear what their name was.

    Thanks for a brilliant evening.
