Seven Towers Festival

Presenting the best world and folk music in spaces created by Hungarian architect Imre Makovecz.

9 ’ringing houses’ in Hungary and beyond, featuring 70 artists, 7 exhibitions, 14 concerts, round table discussion, dance house, and light painting.






The Seven Towers Festival will be held this year between November the 6th and the 21st, taking the best world music and folk music to Imre Makovecz’s spaces. The series of events presents 9 ’ringing structures’, 70 artists, 7 exhibitions, 14 concerts, a conference, a round table discussion, a dance house, and light painting, all taking place in Hungary and beyond.


Imre Makovecz died ten years ago, but his memory and brilliance live on through his legacy, and this year we organize the Seven Towers Festival in Hungary and the surrounding countries to honor his work. 2021 marks the tenth Seven Towers Festival, filling Makovecz’ spaces with the best world and folk music, both within Hungary’s borders and without.


The festival’s mission is to bring outstanding Hungarian folk and world musicians to people in Hungary, and to Hungarians in neighboring countries, highlighting the organic connection between music and architecture. In addition to the concerts, architectural exhibitions and professional discussions will pay tribute to Imre Makovecz’s life’s work, legacy, and influence. Contemporary workshops using folk art of the Carpathian Basin as their point of departure will also be introduced.
