World Stars Meet At Veszprémfest, 15 - 20 July
Veszprémfest is an 11-year-old, yet still dynamically developing, sizable cultural event for lovers of the arts and quality music.

For several days of every summer the event offers world-class performances from various musical genres, be it classical, world music, opera, jazz and pop. Stars of 2014 include: The Brand New Heavies, Vaya Con Dios, and Youssou Ndour. The event slogan is as always, "Let’s meet in Veszprém!"

Names from among the premium category performers of the recent years are: Diana Krall, José Cura, Nigel Kennedy, Al Di Meola, Paco de Lucia, Zoltán Kocsis, Richard Bona, Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea, Joe Zawinul, Jan Garbarek, Andrea Rost, Erika Miklósa, The Gypsy Kings, Candy Dulfer, Gilberto Gil, George Benson, Buena Vista Social Club feat. Omara Portuondo, Craig David and the list goes on…

The beautiful Baroque building of the Archbishop’s Palace in Veszprém Castle serves as the background and natural setting for the concerts. The location – far from the noise of cities – greatly contributes to creating a unique, intimate and friendly atmosphere for visitors.

3 years ago the Rosé, Riesling and Jazz Days were organised for the first time as a complementary event, displaying the excellent range of products by the Balaton-area winemakers and local artisan meals to the accompaniment of the music by young players from the Hungarian jazz scene for those longing for further gastro-cultural experiences. The musical programmes of the Rosé, Riesling and Jazz Days are free of charge. The high-standard programme serves as a worthy complement to the large-scale productions.
