This year’s Campus Festival brought more record numbers than ever before. 

The 15th Campus Festival ended on Sunday. The jubilee event ended with a total of 118,000 visitors over the course of four days, making it the largest festival in Eastern Hungary.

On Friday, the greatest interest was in the concerts of Robin Schulz, Azahriah, the Tankcsapda and Dzsúdló, and on Saturday, Majka performed in front of a full audience on the main stage. Music continued to play a leading role on Campus.

“In addition to the concerts of the prominent headliners, an important feature of the  Campus Festival is that almost the entire spectrum of the domestic music scene will take place on one of the many stages,” program director András Süli said. More than 1,500 musicians and DJs representing the most diverse genres performed on the fifteen music stages. This year, we welcomed ten foreign productions to our stages, including the likes of ZAZ, Parov Stelar and ATB,” he added.

The Campus Festival has been a safe, family-friendly, cultured festival for several years, touching all age groups.

In addition to the entertainment, the University Square, dreamed up by the University of Debrecen, has played an important role at the festival for years, one of the most visited daytime program locations at the festival every year. 

Just like the Civil Village, where forty-one organisations representing important social issues presented themselves this year and the Campus Kid & Art Zone connected to it, which captivated all age groups with its colourful whirlwind of programs.

About 2,700 employees worked on this year’s Campus, of which two hundred and sixty were at the counters, and almost three hundred were responsible for the safety of the audience, there was a 0-24 hour medical and ambulance service, and the Nagyerdei Stadium was available in any weather and ensured safe entertainment.

“Thanks to the VIP guests, more than HUF 11.6 million in support was collected at the opening reception of the festival; and one of the partners of the festival, Tranzit-Ker Zrt., supported our initiative with an additional HUF one million,” Péter Miklósvölgyi, managing director of Debrecen Campus Nonprofit Kft., said.

The amount raised in this way was donated to the István Regőczi Foundation, which helps children orphaned by the coronavirus, and the Debrecen Charity Board.

The next Campus Festival will be held between 17-21th of July 2024.
