FAQ

Why has Brain Bar decided to organize this year's festival online?
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 by the Hungarian government, 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.

Do the restrictions affect the date of the festival?
Yes, the new dates are September 15-16-17. We will redesign the festival to bring out its full potential online, thats why we’ll add an extra day. The detailed program and agenda will be announced soon. Please follow us on Facebook, attend the event and subscribe to our newsletter here to get the latest updates.

Will be there a physical event?
No. Due to the regulations currently in place in Hungary, we cannot hold a physical event.

Where will the festival take place?
We organize the festival completely online and for free on our official Facebook page. Please follow us on Facebook, attend the event and subscribe to our newsletter here to get the latest updates.
