Although New Year’s Eve will be on Sunday in 2017, it is totally worth hitting the town - we have some program tips where to go, if you want to welcome 2018 with some good music.
1. Musical Forever – New Year’s Eve gala at the Operetta Theatre
If you are a fan of operetta and musicals, we already know where you will celebrate the arrival of 2018: Operetta Theatre in Budapest presents a spectacular gala where the most popular songs from for ex.

2. Budapest Swing, Jazz, Funk New Year’s Eve Party at Bálna Bisztró
The New Year’s Eve mood will be set by Bálint Gájer (also known as the Hungarian Michael Bublé) and another talented Hungarian singer, Éliás Jr. Their exclusive New Year’s performance will get everyone in the party mood, for sure. The host of the night, DJ Tégla will play the biggest soul, pop, R&B, funky and jazz hits, to have everyone dancing their way to 2018.
3. New Year’s Eve Ball at Hilton Budapest

+1: New Year’s Eve on a boat – why not?
When in Budapest, you simply have to try a couple of things, for example a river cruise on the Danube. And do you know a better occasion for that then New Year’s Eve? The city will be beautifully enlightened and a couple of fireworks can be seen from the boat, for sure. But waiting to see a ‘light show’ like this won’t be boring because you can have dinner and enjoy a retro style party on the boat. Do you prefer staying on a boat that doesn’t leave the port? Ok, we have an idea for that, too: choose A38, where you can have dinner and then enjoy Péterfi Bori & Love Band’s and Random Trip’s concerts.
Have a fantastic New Year’s Eve and a Happy New Year!
