Budapest Spring Festival

Between the 29th of April and the 15th of May, everyone is welcome at over 100 events held across 30 venues during the 42nd Budapest Spring Festival, the urban festival which reinterprets tradition and offers attendees the opportunity to get involved.

After last year’s online festival, this year we once again have the opportunity to meet in person at one of the capital’s longest-standing event series.


For the past four decades, the Budapest Spring Festival has been a herald of renewal and a celebration of urban diversity, and this year, following years of restrictions and social distancing, we are delighted to provide everyone with the chance to meet up in person, explore venues, and engage with exciting topics. The city will be dancing, playing music, playing games, and celebrating for over two weeks, and we invite everyone, as contemporaries, to get involved in this riot of colour and celebration.


Through their stories, performers and other contributors will give us a snapshot of our world, both as it is and as it could be, with events that cross lines of district, community, and genre to connect residents and visitors.


The line-up, including art and cultural events, offers numerous opportunities for joint play and involvement, in addition to traditional forms. Modelled on the „experience routes” introduced at the Budapest Autumn Festival, several themes are recommended for joint consideration, including maternity, „Europeanness”, and sustainability.


The detailed programme guide is available on the website of the Budapest Spring Festival.
