This summer welcomes the 23rd Danube Carnival that is “traditionally all about traditions”, gathering more than 800 Hungarian artists, over 200 international artists and 37 folk and music ensembles for a spectacular multicultural fest. On June 8-17, the carnival awaits visitors with a wide range of phenomenal and vivid folk and world music, traditional and contemporary dance shows and concerts in several venues around the capital city.
Besides the programs taking place at Kobuci Kert in District 3, a breath-taking gala concert will be held at the Margaret Island Open Air Stage on June 16, starring the Hungarian State Folk Ensemble, the Duna Art Ensemble and the Dohnányi Symphonic Orchestra, along with István Pál ‘Szalonna’ & his Band. The picturesque folklore heritage of the V4 countries will impress the audiences of the Visegrad Dance Carnival at Heroes’ Square on June 17. Another main attraction of this year’s fest is the Emir Kusturica & No Smoking Orchestra concert.
Join the hundreds of Hungarian and foreign dancers and musicians engaged in tradition and innovation, style and smile.
