Django Feszt Budapest was created in the spirit of jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt’s legacy, and the sublime feeling of his last home, Samois-sur-Seine and  the community he brings together every year in Samoreau.

Years of persistent music-making and organisation led to the idea of how to bring together the world of manouche jazz in Hungary: musicians, dancers, and the genre’s loyal followers and future fans.

We hope that Django Feszt Budapest will become a tradition and an annual event that will attract the attention of festival-goers from European countries as well, thus creating a large cross-border community.
