Please avoid making purchases on the Viagogo website.
As many of you have pointed out, www.viagogo.com/hu is charging several times what we do for tickets to the Budapest Festival Orchestra’s concerts.
We are not under contract with the above website and have no influence on the prices they have established there.
Do not allow yourselves be cheated and overcharged!
The easiest ways to buy tickets to our concerts is still online through the bfz.hu website, without administration costs, or in person at the Budapest Festival Orchestra’s secretariat, as well as at concert venue ticket offices.
