International Folklore Music Festival: Hungary, Summer in Budapest! (July 2015)

FolkWay - International Folklore Music Festival - Hungary, Summer in Budapest

Festival Overview

Budapest is the capital city of Hungary. With a unique, youthful atmosphere, world-class classical music scene as well as a pulsating nightlife increasingly appreciated among European youth, and last but not least, an exceptional offer of natural thermal baths, Budapest is one of Europe’s most delightful and enjoyable cities. Due to the exceedingly scenic setting, and its architecture it is nicknamed “Paris of the East”. The local pronunciation can be approximated by “boo-dah-pesht”. In 1987 Budapest was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List for the cultural and architectural significance of the Banks of the Danube, the Buda Castle Quarter and Andrássy Avenue.

This is the second “Summer in Budapest” festival when dance groups, majorettes, brass bands, folk musicians, choirs arriving to our capital from all around the world. During the meeting, folk groups will be able to communicate through their performances, take part in various games and activities that will reinforce the message of friendship and cooperation.
