The 16th Ördögkatlan Festival in Baranya County, Southern Hungary, offers more than half a thousand programs, including theater performances, literary events, visual arts, family events and concerts between August 1-5.
The festival organizers are expecting more than 100,000 visitors to the event, which will be held in Nagyharsány, the nearby sculpture park, Beremend, the Mokos Winery in Palkonya and the Vylian vineyard in Kisharsány.
Over the past decade and a half, the program of the event has evolved, but most of the events pay tribute to the spirit and work of the founding singer Tamás Cseh.
In the Aralica Garden in Nagyharsány, the University of Pécs addresses its students on important issues that directly affect them.
Four Ukrainian bands will perform at the festival, and there will also be Ukrainian crafts, dance and singing lessons.
There will also be a guided tour of the cement factory in Beremend, as well as a program of highlights including productions by young theaters, literary events, folklore and an ‘Indian reservation’.
As part of the literary offer, Europa Publishers will be represented by János Háy and Krisztina Bódis, Jelenkor by András Visky, Corvina by Judit Csáki and Imre Csuja, Magvető by Ádám Nádasdy, Dénes Krusovszky, Krisztina Tóth, Ildikó Boldizsár, Anna Szabó T. and György Dragomán.
