Budapest Festival Orchestra

BFO Friends Card – Our Way to Thank Loyal Listeners!

The Budapest Festival Orchestra’s loyalty programme is free to join and opens up a world of rewards and enriching experiences. After you have registered for the BFO Friends Card programme, your ticket purchases and active contacts with the Budapest Festival Orchestra earn points. The more you accumulate, the higher you rise through the membership tiers. Depending on your membership level, you will be entitled to discounts at partner restaurants and merchants. Higher-tier BFO Friends also will be invited to the VIP lounge, get to meet BFO artists and managers and will have an opportunity to purchase tickets before they go on general sale. So join the BFO Friends Card programme today!
