During the three days of the festival, more than 40 artists will entertain the audience in Esztergom, including Margaret Island, Irie Maffia, Follow the Flow, Balkan Fanatik, Beatrice, Dzsúdló, Blahalouisiana, Brains and New Level Empire.
The MCC Fest also offers participants an opportunity for intellectual recreation.
The national and international speakers will explore topics such as peace and security, the world of startups, the future of cryptocurrencies, the challenges of banking, and career planning.
Speakers will include world-renowned urban researcher Richard L. Florida, Professor of Cognitive Science at the University of Toronto John Vervaeke, and journalist-editor of UnHerd and regular contributor to the Times magazine Mary Harrington.
There will also be talks on reconciling family life, journalistic objectivity, the role of women entrepreneurs and the role of tradition and progress in architecture. The Edu Promenade will also showcase the full range of MCC’s training programs, as well as its professional institutions and partner organizations.
The programs are free, while concerts will take place in the historic center of Esztergom, on Széchenyi Square and on the Kis-Duna promenade. As a new feature this year, the “MCC Island” stage will be set up on Prímás Island, covering an area of more than 10,000 square meters.
