Balaton Sound

Our beloved Lake Balaton is the most beautiful in summer, and the most exciting to visit during Balaton Sound. Why? Because it can’t be boring to dance to your favourite party music with a background like the lake Balaton or the beautiful Tihany Abbey. So we absolutely suggest you the Balaton Sound, this year from 5 to 9 July in Zamárdi.

On stage this year: Armin Van Buuren, Jason Derulo, Robin Schulz, Kygo, etc.

The festival of college and university students is quite popular in Hungary and also abroad, because it is always a huge, week-long party, and the ticket prices are quite acceptable, too. For example, a week pass this year is available for 80 euro. So join one of the biggest summer music festivals from 11 to 17 July in Velence and have fun.

On stage this year: Tinie Tempah, Sean Paul, Hurts, etc.
