Café Budapest
05/10/2018 - 21/10/2018

Explore new horizons, escape reality, exercise your mind, excite your senses. The Café Budapest (former Autumn Festival) challenges the definitions of art as we know it. 

The Budapest Spring Festival’s sister event, the Café Budapest (former Budapest Autumn Festival), specialises in avant-garde and contemporary culture. Annually, it presents world-class and top-ranking international and Hungarian art of various genres, and is now one of Europe’s leading festivals of contemporary art.

Established by the Municipality of Budapest, it has, since 1992, evolved into an all-arts festival, embracing all the different genres of contemporary art. Its prestige is such that many productions time their premiere or shows to open at the Café Budapest festival before they start their tours elsewhere in the world. The festival’s offerings take place in various venues across Budapest.

Venues: Müpa Budapest, Liszt Academy, A38 Ship, Budapest Music Center, Castle Garden Bazaar, Vigadó, Akvárium, Millenáris and Bálna Budapest.
