We gladly recommend you to search the program of the Mediawave Gathering and make plans so you ca actively participate at the end-of-April long weekend (5 days). The music program is almost complete and the film program will soon be available. The film program was selected by international selection teams and currently we are scheduling the programs.  This year for the first time we attempt to create the community cinema experience with involvement of film makers, juries, student juries and visitors as a combination of classical and new trends of social screenings. We are happy to invite you for those events and feel free to get informed. You can also have an idea about the structure here.

You can also reach the afternoon programs - Riverside picnic as well as the community programs, however you can submit with your community projects until the last moment.

This year we offer programs for families with kids, too.

THE COLLECTOR - Miklós Both's Gold Cross

We have had an effective cooperation with Miki since 2010. First we involved him into our roma-Hungarian music workshops and then we travelled around the minority-inhabited areas of Inner South China searching for musicians to bring them to Hungary. We helped his unique music collector activity in Transylvania last year. In our summer camps, he goes collecting music with young people to the gipsy villages of Somogy County. We are proud that he was awarded the Gold Cross of the Hungarian Order of Merit last week.

We have over 40 videos of his abovementioned activity, feel free to check them here (you can play them only with Firefox)

THE BRIDGEWOMAN - Hungarian Gold Cross for Ildikó Nagy

Ildikó 's relationship with Mediawave dates back to her grammar school years, when she started to work there as a volunteer. In the early 2000's she became one of the music organisers of the team and not much later she was already in charge of the international jazz programs. This was the period when Mediawave had grown a characterful European jazz festival, in which she played a significant role.

Meanwhile Mediawave was accepted to EJN (European Jazz Network) where she soon became a board member.

She met her husband, Chris Potter, the world-known American jazz saxophonist at Mediawave. Since then she has lived in New York, where, as the director of the Hungarian House, coordinates and builds the Hungarian community and cultural life with never-ending enthusiasm and perseverance.

For this activity, she was honoured with the Gold Cross of the Hungarian Order of Merit in New York City on 12 March, 2018.

She is with her daughter, Anna, in the photo.

THE LYRISIST - László Villányi's Cross of the Hungarian Order of Merit

More friends of us has received national awards lately, including László Villányi, with who we have worked together for decades, making films and documenting literary events.


This year there will be a unique presentation of the Műhely Periodical's special edition "JOY" (he was the editor in chief) at the MEDIAWAVE Film and Music Gathering.


He was awarded this merit for the acknowledgement of his poems representing a unique and strong voice in contemporary Hungarian lira and his high-level editor activity enriching the cultural life of the city of Győr.

THE ALERT - József Pintér's Hungarian Silver Cross

I took part at Jószef's self initiated accident prevention presentation series at the Barn Festival in Kiscsősz. I recroded the event and got fond of his almost fanatic dedication. Cimbi, the director of the Barn Festival, was also suspicious about the success of the presentation at a folk event, but to our surprise it went with full house.

We exchanged thoughts and emails about how to visualise and talk about a topic like this and I eventually invited him to MEDIAWAVE. Having got to know the community, József gave the presentation at such cultural places some further thoughts: he extended it with an exhibition and a live show also has in his mind for this year.

It is a special delight that they awarded him officially, too, for his volunteering activity: the President of the Republic of Hungary honoured JÓZSEF PINTÉR, Chief Warrant Officer, traffic accident investigator with the Silver Cross of the Hungarian Order of Merit as an acknowledgement of his high level  two decade activity in service.

pUULLUUp Estonian underground with lots of fun (concert extract)

Ramo Teder (Pastacas)- hiiu kannel (fol harph), looper and electronics, vocal, Marko Veisson - folk harph, electronics, vocal

Puuluup directs the vibrations of the Talharpa's horsehair strings through effects and loop pedals, using alternative bowing and drumming techniques and sounds. The mellow sighs of Talharpa are paired with electronically amplified echoes, knocks, creaks and crackles, while still maintaining the instrument's natural sound. A dialogue between the familiar natural sound and its electronic variations emerges. Puuluup approaches They draw inspiration from travel to faraway lands, Vormsi nights, trams in November, junkies in love, criminals from Odessa and Antonio Vivaldi. See the concert in the details.

In your festival I felt like at home-Anti Naulainen's opinion


Anti arrived at Mediawave with the Estonian delegation.

He does not consider himself a festival guy, but after reading his opinion we should reconsider the statement.

Read his thoughts in the details.
