There is no handling fee for online purchases. If you buy your season pass or ticket online, you will receive an e-season pass or an e-ticket (in PDF format) by email. Please be sure to check your spam folder as well! E-season passes are fully valid electronic season passes that give you access to all the performances included in your season pass. To protect the environment, instead of printing out your e-season pass or e-ticket please save the PDF email attachment to your smartphone and present it at the venues with electronic admission (Müpa Budapest, Castle Garden Bazaar). If this is not possible, show the printout of your e-season pass or e-ticket. If you would like to exchange your e-season pass for a paper ticket, you can do so in person at the BFO’s offices by August 31, 2021.

Please avoid making purchases on the Viagogo website.

As many of you have pointed out, 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 to be cheated and overcharged!

The easiest ways to buy tickets to our concerts is still online through the website, without administration costs, or in person at the Budapest Festival Orchestra’s office as well as at concert venue ticket offices.
