2. Paloznaki Jazzpiknik, Homola Winery In Hungary, 20 – 22 August

In one of the most popular villages on the northern shore of Lake Balaton, this winery will again host the "Paloznaki Jazzpiknik" in 2020 - a 3-day, 4-stage, 20-concert event outside in a country house yard, held as part of the "Nagyon Balaton" event series.

3. Kolorádó Festival @ Outskirts Of Budapest, 26 – 29 August

For the fifth time, the mellow hip world of 'Kolorádó feszt' comes to life on the outskirts of Budapest this August, providing four days of live music and open-air entertainment.

This annual music festival is held close to Pécs, in the south of Hungary. Organised by László Rátgéber and András Lovasi, singer of Kispál és a Borz and Kiscsillag, it has become one of the most popular 'small festivals' in the Hungarian countryside.

6. Street Music Festival @ Veszprém, 26 - 29 August

Once again for a few days Veszprém will become a 'real festival town' featuring entertainment in various styles, with live music played in the town centre from morning to late night.

7. EFOTT Festival @ Lake Velence, 26 - 30 August

EFOTT is a mega summer party for students (of life), held by a lake not very far from Budapest. As well as offering great gigs, the organizers say they put much emphasis on sporting and cultural activities, and also on fine festival food and drinks!
