VeszprémFest 2018, 11-15 July
VeszprémFest is a dynamic developing cultural event, which is creating real value for the joy of the local and national highbrow music and arts lovers.

Every summer for several days the event offers different music genres’ highest standard, world famous performers, whether it is world music, jazz, classical music, opera or pop music.

Since 2011 the Rose, Riesling and Jazz Days were organized as a complementary event displaying the excellent range of wine and food produced by the Balaton-area winemakers and local artisans, and accompanied by music played by young musicians from the Hungarian jazz scene for those longing for gastro-cultural experiences.

The musical programmes of the Rosé, Riesling and Jazz Days are free of charge. The carefully selected programme serves as a worthy complement to the productions on the main stage.

This year, there are some new highlights in store for the visitors, and not only regarding performers: the festival celebrating its 14th anniversary this year is to move to a new open-air venue due to reconstruction work in the Archbishop’s Palace.

After the baroque, sacred atmosphere of Szentháromság Square, the new location is tied to the historic and ecclesiastical roots of Veszprém.

The former resting garden of archbishops, known today as História Garden, lies at the eastern foot of Castle Hill, on the banks of Séd stream.

The park of picturesque beauty is bordered by the refurbished, redolent and former resting building to the north, by the horizontal contours of the castle to the west, and by the spectacle of the baroque buildings of the town centre and the historic Old Town to the south.

Stay tuned, detailed program coming soon…

    From the organisers: One afternoon in the summer of 2002, I was drinking wine with one of my musician friends in a garden in Veszprém. He told me that he had seen Pavarotti in Austria, performing in a cathedral which had room for about a thousand people. He was surprised, that the Maestro gave a concert in such a small place.
