- Hungary Matters
Registration has already started for the event which will be held for the 26th time, a statement by Womex owner Piranha Arts and the Hungarian organiser Hangvető said.
Budapest will host the event for the second time since 2015. Hangvető, together with its strategic partner CAFé Budapest Contemporary Arts Festival, will organise events in the same venues as those used in 2015: Müpa, Bálna and A38.
Orsganisers say Budapest has a rich musical culture, whether it is classical music, modern experimental, electronica, alternative music, or traditional Hungarian and Roma folk music.
While this capital city is known for its Turkish thermal baths, Gothic and Neo-Gothic and Roman-inspired architecture, today Budapest is a vibrant musical hub with a unique blend of east meets west, old meets modern culture and lifestyle, making it a valuable city for another exciting edition of WOMEX in 2020.
Date and time:
21 – 25 October, 2020
