The 44th Budapest Spring Festival, coinciding this year with the 20th anniversary of Hungary’s accession to the European Union, reflects on our connection with Europe on both intellectual and emotional levels. In solidarity with those affected by global conflicts and in support of freedom struggles, Budapest opens its arms to the world.

Join us for a vibrant celebration of Budapest’s boundless culture with over 40 programmes and special anniversary experiences across nearly 30 venues from April 29 to May 12. Alongside Hungarian talents, we’re thrilled to host a diverse array of international artists. Noteworthy among our venues are newly opened spaces like the City Hall Passage and Merlin, which were recently unveiled to commemorate Budapest’s 150th birthday.

From classical to contemporary, the festival promises a varied and engaging experience for audiences of all ages. Join us in celebrating Budapest’s cultural heritage and its place on the global stage at the Budapest Spring Festival.
