Winesong Festival

"In vino veritas" 

Pécs, an attractive old university town with a special Mediterranean atmosphere, has been hosting a unique festival for male choruses, vocal ensembles and soloists every year since 1993.

The festival’s host ensemble is the Bartók Béla Male Chorus, widely known for its excellent quality and international success.

The festival has different venues, including the world-famous Villány Wine Region, the National Theatre in Pécs (site of the gala concert) and the Széchenyi Square, also in Pécs. In the Square, amidst the Feast of Grapes and Wine, around ten thousands people enjoy the colourful programmes of the choirs, the invited folklore ensembles and dance groups.

World Convivial Wine Song Festivals are organised in every fourth year.
