Budapest Ritmo is brought to you by CAFe Budapest and Hangvető


Hangvető has been center stage in the CEE region since 2004. We cultivate world music talent, produce and organise events, take on consultation and implementation of cultural development strategies, and create training programmes for industry professionals through international cooperation. In 2020 Hangvető brings WOMEX to Budapest after a wildly successful first installment of this worldwide music event in 2015.

CAFe Budapest

Organized now for the 29th time, this year’s CAFe Budapest Contemporary Arts Festival will be held between 9 and 25 October, 2020. From contemporary music to theatre premieres, from popular music and jazz to dance and visual art, the art of our times will again be highlighted in the Hungarian capital during the seventeen days of the event series. The affiliated events of CAFe Budapest will again include the Budapest Ritmo world music festival, and just as earlier the Art Market Budapest and the Autumn Margó Literary Festival.

This year the events will be hosted, among others, by Müpa Budapest, Liszt Academy, Budapest Music Center, Akvárium Klub, A38 Ship, Várkert Bazár (Castle Garden Bazaar), and Trafó House of Contemporary Arts.
