Join the BFO Friends loyalty program!
Following your registration, you will be able to earn points with each ticket and season ticket you purchase, and through your active engagement with the Budapest Festival Orchestra, you can redeem your points for exclusive experiences and discounts. As you collect more points, you will progress through the corresponding levels, where you can benefit from more and more advantages. Registration and participation in the scheme is free of charge.
Introducing our revamped BFO Friends loyalty program
The first reward of our renewed program will benefit our Fortissimo-level members: they will have the opportunity to purchase season passes early from June 9, 10:00 a.m.
What other changes can be expected for the 2020-2021 season?
- When buying flexible season passes, one point will be awarded for every HUF 500 spent instead of every HUF 2,000 spent
- Once you collect 3,000 points, you may enjoy the benefits of our BFO Patrons club, as a silver-class patron for a whole year
- BFO Patrons will get double the points when purchasing season passes
- Members of our loyalty program will receive a CD once they have collected 1,500 points
- Forte- and Fortissimo-level members of our loyalty program may participate in the dress rehearsals of the Budapest Festival Orchestra (see the table below for more details)
- For sold-out performances, Forte- and Fortissimo-level members will be placed on a waiting list
- Our list of partners has grown with the Museum of Fine Arts, the Cirko-Gejzír Movie Theater and a másik bolt
- Fortissimo-level members may participate in our season opening event in March
If you have not joined our loyalty program yet, we would love to have you as a member!
Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at + 36 1 489 43 30.
The validity period of the loyalty levels has been extended—Collecting points by purchasing tickets was practically impossible for a long period of time due to the coronavirus pandemic, and we would like to make sure you do not lose your current loyalty level because of this. As we indicated in our newsletters, we extended the validity period of the loyalty levels for members whose validity would expire by December 31. These members may actively begin collecting points once the sale of single tickets starts on June 24 and will retain their current level until then.
