Celebrating its 16th anniversary, VeszprémFest is a dynamically developing, large-scale cultural event creating true value for lovers of art and quality music. This year, the fest is organized on July 10-13.
For several days every summer the event offers the most accomplished, world-class performers from various musical genres, including classical music, world music, opera, jazz and pop. The magnificent outdoor venue of VeszprémFest is Bishop’s Garden, which serves as the backdrop and natural setting for the main stage, only a few steps from the Eastern walls of the 1000-year-old Veszprém Castle. This venue will host the Caro Emerald concert, Katie Melua, UB40 featuring Ali&Astro and an opera, namely Verdi’s Rigoletto. Every year, a 10-day mini-festival named ‘Rosé, Riesling and Jazz Days’ accompany the VeszprémFest, in the heart of Sopron, at Óváros Square, presenting wine-makers of the Balaton Wine Region, and a stage for many Hungarian performers, including Soul Surge, Bin Jip, Tóth Vera Quartet, Ruby Harlem and many more.
