The V4 Festival and Theatre Meeting is going to be held for the 8th times in 2021. By now the event exceeds itself, and the Festival is one of the most prestigious cultural program in the V4 region. The main issue again is to strengthen the cultural cooperation of the V4 states: We want to continue the cooperation started in 2013 that spans over borders, one that puts the artists and audiences of the region intouch and offers opportunities for pooling of experience, for studying each other’s methods. In 2013 we started to improve a deeper cultural and theatrical coexistence in the region with theatrical, musical programs, riverside picnic events and with a V4 specific theatrical workshop. V4 festival is for now a brand, but the task isn’t completed: we want it to involve more participants from the youth generation, with more artistic programs from different fields, exhibition, etc. We would like to strengthen the continuous progress started in 2017: International musical production, all day programs for families, much more familiar brand new image, strong international tool like subtitle system and simultaneous interpretation.
New Location – Nagymaros
From 2021 the Festival moved to a new place, and definitely we found the best location for such a festival called V4. The new place is Nagymaros, the opposite side of Visegrad. Every theatrical and musical attraction in the V4 festival in 2021 will have a historical and sightful background: The Visegrad Castle where the historical Visegrad cooperation was born in 1335.
Annyversary – RENASCENCE
In 2021 we celebrate the 30th anniversary of the V4 cooperation of the modern era, and the extended 30th anniversary of the regime change. The main issue of the 8th V4 Festival and Theatre meeting beside the cultural cooperation, the theatrical and musical programs is to celebrate the reborn of the free V4 region. For this reason the V4 feature of the festival will be stronger than ever, the retrospection of the new era of the region will accompany the whole festival. After the cultural programs, on the 1st of July Hungary takes over the annual Presidency of the Visegrad Group. For this occasion we organize a Cultural Gala where the Hungarian State Secretary for Culture, will ceremoniously take over the V4 Cultural Presidency from the representative of Poland. Also we would like to mention and celebrate the 20th anniversary of the International Visegrad Fund, our significant co-financer.
Beside the theatrical productions we have a very strong musical lineup: The most famous festival groups from Hungary and the V4 region.
Please check the Program menu on our website for the details of the V4 theatrical performances and the musical programs.
Come and enjoy our V4 atmosphere!
