Events & Signup

Welcome to the community site for Open Mic & Jam events in Budapest, Hungary

For the most recent events and updates — like cancellations, announcements, one-off events, partner events — you should follow our Facebook page. Then check under the Events menu for co-hosted events AND also the All Events Summary under our Posts menu, where we list recurring events that we know of. (You can do this even if you don’t have a Fb profile, or you can see a copy of it further below.) Then find a time and a venue that fits you, and if you want to perform, read the description for each individual event. You can often sign up in advance by contacting us or as specified in the event, or show up early and you’ll most likely play anyway.

You can also sign up to be a FEATURED ARTIST, playing an extended set, by writing to us.

If you want another open event listed on our page or co-hosted by us, also just send a message and describe what you have going.
