The events on August the 20th will begin with the traditional raising of the national flag, followed by the official St Stephen’s Day Celebration and the Hungarian Defence Force Air Parade. The festival atmosphere will be guaranteed by well-known Hungarian and foreign artists performing all around Budapest, with a line-up featuring Gyula “Bill” Deák, Feró Nagy and Beatrice, Tamás Hevesi, the Dirty Blues Band of Tamás Takács, EDDA Művek, and Ivan & the Parazol, as well as many more.
But the four-day event is not only for music lovers: this year will once again see the extremely successful Fashion & Design Festival at the Bálna Venue, the “Művészkert” (Art Garden) will reopen its doors to literature and culture fans, and military technology enthusiasts will be able to admire the Pannonia ship and the iconic Golden Train. And as if this wasn’t enough, the long weekend will also feature the Street of Hungarian Flavours, the “Csárda” Festival, numerous food truck shows, and the Festival of FolkArts. Truly something for everyone!
