Music Biennale Zagreb is an international festival of contemporary music founded in 1961. Dedicated to new music – including “living classics” of contemporary music and the new generation of international composers – programmes include projects by symphony orchestras and chamber ensembles, experimental musical theatre, contemporary dance, jazz, electronic and alternative music. Two principles guide the biennale: tolerance and high standards of musical production, creativity and reproduction.
Ördögkatlan Fesztivál – “Dragon’s Cauldron” – is a multicultural event in 4 small villages in the Villany wine region. The annual pan-art festival takes place in almost 45 locations over 5 days in August. Several of the events are suited to an intimate indoor setting for a small audience, while some are open-air concerts with thousands present. The varied programme includes jazz, world, rock, folk and classical music, drama, circus, dance, literature, art, workshops and children’s events.
