Festivals can start again in 2021

The coronavirus epidemic has severely affected the festival sector all over the world, including Hungary.

The government has set up a fund with a total of HUF 700 million to support the industry and make sure there will be festivals in 2021, said Norbert Lobenwein, festival organizer and vice-president of the Music Hungary Association. He added that “Hungary is a festival superpower.” The money will be distributed directly to companies that organize festivals. 

Meanwhile, government spokeswoman Alexandra Szentkirály announced on Thursday that the government had decided on an additional support package worth HUF 2 billion 120 million for music clubs and festival organizers as well. 

The Hungarian Tourism Agency will provide further details of the support program.
