Now organised for the 28th time, this year’s CAFe Budapest Contemporary Arts Festival will be held between 4 and 20 October.

From contemporary music to theatre premieres, from jazz to dance and visual arts, the culture of our times will again be showcased across the Hungarian capital during the 17 days of this popular event series. Besides the work of Hungarian composer Béla Bartók, this year's festival focuses on his more modern counterpart and compatriot, Péter Eötvös. Affiliated events again include the Budapest Ritmo world music festival, Art Market Budapest and the Margó Literary Festival and Book Fair.

As in previous years, the events will be hosted by Müpa Budapest, the Liszt Academy, BMC, the Akvárium Klub, the A38 Ship, the Várkert Bazaar, the Pesti Vigadó, the Uránia National Film Theatre and the Trafó House of Contemporary Arts, among others.
