Festival: Budapest Spring Festival

Biographie

April 3rd – April 19th, 2020

Budapest is a city of values and emotions, where festivals are as much about traditions as fascinating new surprises.

Budapest holds countless wonders and surprises: its splendid spas, bustling city centre, the unique ruin pubs, an effervescent scene of multiculturalism, the World Heritage-listed sites, and the Danube bank are all attractions that provide the city with an incomparable atmosphere. In 2013, the American Condé Nast Traveler magazine’s worldwide poll named it one of Europe’s most exciting cities, and Foursquare users consider it the second most romantic city in the world. Over and above its historical and cultural values and diversity, this is also thanks to the creativity with which the city reinvents itself.

The past two years have brought about important changes in the cultural life of Budapest. In addition to the beautiful, 130-year-old Opera House, and the region’s first large centre of the performing arts, the Palace of Arts – whose Béla Bartók National Concert Hall is one of the best-sounding concert venues in the world –, the freshly renovated Academy of Music, which was founded by Franz Liszt, awaits visitors again, as does Erkel Theatre. The newly opened Budapest Music Center is one of Europe’s latest establishments dedicated to contemporary art, and also gives home to the institute of composer Péter Eötvös.
