In order to convince us this is really a culture event, there will be 40 concerts and 120 well-known foreign and Hungarian performers. The promo states we can enjoy the concerts of the likes of Paddy & The Rats for one. Based on the other names, it seems you will want to drink if not voluntarily, but out of necessity. It is doubtfully that few non-Hungarians will have heard of any of the entertainment, and the standup comic will also try to tickle your funny bone in Hungarian too.
Before you think you can get soaked for cheap, they soak you for an admission fee as follows.
Daily pass: 1999 HUF, includes one beer (for children under 18 years includes one soft drink)
Five-day pass: 6999 HUF, includes one beer (for children under 18 years includes one soft drink)

Thank goodness there are no alcoholics in this country, allowing everyone to enjoy these festivals with a clear conscious.
