    HI, does anyone know if there is a website that lists upcoming jazz concerts in Bp. I’m coming in June and really want to hear some! Can be in Hungarian! Thanks!

    • Festival Budapest

      Hello Andrew, there are very nice jazz clubs and bars in Budapest I think and the upcoming jazz concerts are usually listed on their websites, like the New Orleans Jazz Bar, the Budapest Jazz Club, the Wine Bar Jazz Club, Opus Jazz Club – these bars and clubs feature lots of jazz concerts (the settings vary, but usually smart casual clothing should be fin)! Further jazz concerts on a more occasional basis can be on A38 Music Bar (a ship by Petofi Bridge), or in Akvarium Club, and at some festivals and music events (sorry, no special listing at this moment in June). More serious jazz concerts (international, higher prices) are at the Palace of Arts in Budapest (MUPA) and the Budapest Music Center (next the Great Market Hall in Budapest)
      Here are some links to the jazz concerts (Hungarian, foreign too)

      The Wine Bar Jazz Club may not re-open yet (currently they are moving places) You can contact them at info@winebar.hu

  2. Festival Budapest

    Hello Mansour, this is a Budapest festival guide, and each festival in Budapest has its own festival organizer or organizing team. Please contact the organizers of the festival that best suits your profile. If it is jazz, please check the Hungarian Jazz Festival organizers, or contact BJC (Budapest Jazz Club) on bjc.hu for further guidance.

  3. I am organizing a trip for my female jazz student for March 2015. Can you tell me if the jazz festival is at the end of March each year and if there is any way we could be part of the festival when we come? Thank you!
