Budapest Ritmo is brought to you by CAFe Budapest and Hangvető


Hangvető is a common platform for independent artists and labels. It gained recognition as a distributor and an organizer of special events. From the outset we have been involved in festival and concert organization. We are proud to have been organizing world and folk music concerts at the Valley of Arts Festival between 2004-2010. In 2015 Hangvető brought the largest international fair and festival in the world music scene, WOMEX to Budapest. Next year Budapest Ritmo was launched, today Hangvető offers PontFestival, Budapest A Cappella Festival and brand new Csocsek to all who enjoy quality music. Hangvető firmly supports continuous networking within the region, and provides a local reference point in world and folk music.
