Hangvető has been center stage in the CEE region since 2004 for cultivating world music talent, producing and organising events, consulting on and implementing cultural development strategies and creating training programmes for industry professionals through international cooperation. Our Budapest office is often pulsating with the sounds of #worldmusic, #folkmusic and #ethnomusic.

Hangvető is once again honoured to host the world music industry’s most prestigious networking event: WOMEX 2020. This four-day event is made possible with the cooperation with our strategic partner CAFe Budapest and with locations such as Müpa, Bálna Budapest and A38 Ship.

We recently launched our newest project MOST, which aims to strengthen the connection between the Balkans and the global world music scene, with an unprecedented 4 million euro grant. This is the first time a Hungarian project has received this level of funding within the EU’s Creative Europe Programme, in the largest category. Our main partners are the European Music Council, Bozar, Piranha Arts, Foundation Exit and Timisoara 2021.

We also organise two annual festivals in Budapest: Ritmo and PONT. The aim is to partner with numerous world music professionals across Europe to foster regional cooperation, as well as to showcase UNESCO designated intangible heritage.
