The new venue of the event is Pápateszér, located at the foot of the Bakony Mountains, surrounded by pine and oak forests and deer herds. In such a fabulous environment, we can recharge for five days. ...

This year, in an unusual way, you could already start connecting with the sounds and music on the eve of the HUG Festival, because thanks to a special collaboration, the Rise in Love Festival held last September will move to Pápateszér, under the name RISE IN HUG. On July 26, 2022, from 5 p.m., we will set off with a wonderful, heart-opening cacao ceremony, celebrated for us by the Guatemalan dj-producer MOSE. In the meantime, the Medicina band will join him, who will lead you to higher dimensions with healing chants and mantras, and then we can move on to MOSE's dj set. The evening will be closed by the SavaBorsa dj duo with their electronic world music set.Rise in HUG
