László Bérczes, festival director, "We take the words Pan-Art seriously. If we were profit-oriented, we would of course be organising a rock and/or a gastronomy festival – but although we have no problem with those types of festivals, our motives are altogether different- creating a five-day celebration of humanity, diversity and quality, enlisting all genres carrying value, providing an opportunity to everything from mainstream to marginal – experimental.”

Mari Törőcsik, patron, "The real experience of certitude found me in August, 2011, when I first visited this festival, in five days I observed for myself that even with a large amount of time and experience behind me, I was astonished by people: that quality, curiosity, modesty, and above all, love, have the potential to generate happy communities even in this rather harsh and sometimes alienating 21st century.”
