About Brain Bar

Brain Bar is Europe's largest festival on the future where we debate the issues that will define our future on the long run – unhindered by conventions and unapologetic about breaking taboos. The festival is a three-day event where invited speakers share their views on the future. The event is also interspersed with music and artistic performances and interactive workshops from regional artists. In order to highlight the CEE regional content, we are inviting the best minds from the region to share their vision in the future at Brain Bar. They will emphasise and strengthen shared common values and goals. Specific questions will be discussed about the Future of Europe and about innovation in the Visegrad countries. Through our annual event, we aim to create a space where new ideas, collaborations and networks can evolve. Moreover, our aim is to enhance the already existing partnerships, to enforce new relations with other countries from the region and from the world. Promoting the event through online and offline channels – targeted ads in magazines in- and outside of Hungary, social media and other pr campaigns, media partnerships. We can see results through the number of visitors, this number has been growing every year and through the increasing number of livestream viewers and social media followers.

News about Brain Bar

COVID-19 has a big impact on life in general everywhere and it seems that this unprecedented crisis will have further effect for the upcoming months. Brain Bar Festival has been initially postponed to September, but due to public health concerns and restrictions in massive gatherings it's clear that we are unable to carry on with the event in its original form.

Since our main priority is the well-being of our visitors, speakers and partners, it’s the wisest decision to hold our beloved future festival completely online. We organize the festival completely online and for free on our official Facebook page.

The new dates are September 15-16-17

But fear not! We are working around the clock to convert the festival to a mind-blowing online Brain Bar experience, just like you'd expect it from us.

Your purchased tickets are automatically valid for the festival in 2021.
