Művészetek Völgye (Valley of the Arts) takes place near the northern shore of Lake Balaton in a number of tiny villages: Kapolcs, Taliándörögd and Vigántpetend. Hungary's largest multi-art festival welcomes visitors for the 28th year with 26 stages and 40 exhibition yards. The secret of its constantly growing popularity lies in its liberated atmosphere, according to most visitors. This year’s festival will feature fairs and family programs, poetry and movie nights, yoga and cooking workshops, in addition to a number of blues, folk, pop, rock and jazz concerts. Both Hungarian bands and international performers will step on stage, such as Rebecca Ferguson, Jamese, the Carbonfools, Useme, The Asian Dub Foundation, Mörk, the Mary Popkids, Ivan & the Parazol, the Bagossy Brothers Company, De-Phazz, The Immigrants, Muzsikás, Iamyank, the Maneuver Maneuver and the I am Soyuz, to name only a few.
