Veszprémfest To Feature Ziggy Marley, Joss Stone & Opera Stars
VeszprémFest, a 15-year old music festival in the western Hungarian town of Veszprem, will showcase Ziggy Marley, Joss Stone (pictured above), Amy Macdonald alongside the opera divas José Cura, Erika Miklósa, Ramón Vargas and Andrea Rost in mid-July.

Hungarian cross-genre violinist, zither-player and composer Félix Lajkó will take to the VeszprémFest stage between July 11 and 13, the organisers said.

Veszprém mayor Gyula Porga said the festival’s 15 years had seen a “leap in the quality of life in Veszprém”.
