Supporter membership

After the many good feelings of the HUG festival in recent years, we would like to further strengthen and carry on the friendly, intimate and family atmosphere of the handpan-loving HUG festival. For us, this family feeling, commitment to the same values, belonging together is important not only during the festival, but throughout the year. In connection with this, as last year we keep on with the same formula in 2024 - we will ensure that the members of the Hungarian Handpan Association (the official organizer of HUG) can participate in the HUG festival for FREE between July 18-21, 2024., Pápateszér.
So, for the sake of clarity: we do not plan to sell season tickets either this year, participation for the whole event and the associated discounts will only be available to patron members. To maintain this nice, unique family ambient, what HUG has from the beginning, the maximum amount of supporter members in 2024 is 500 persons. Before starting to sell the daily tickets - first we announce only the supporter membership.

In addition to the free entry to the HUG festival, the Hungarian Handpan Association’s patron member, that is to say:  the "official Silver Hugger ", (100 Euros) also receives the following discounts:
- 5% discount on MAG Instruments’ products https://maginstruments.hu
- 10% discount from Puretone handpan school’s workshops https://puretonemusic.hu/
- 10% discount on all HUG festival’s merchandise (t-shirt, singlet, bag... etc.)
discounted or free participation in other events, concerts, lectures and workshops of the Hungarian Handpan Association/HUG farm
- first-round information  newsletter about the Association's activities and expected programs, so, the patron members are informed about everything first
the "official Golden Hugger", (125 Euros) beside the ones above also receives HUG T-shirt

And as usual for years: with the whole week's pass, you can also win a MAG Instruments’ instrument, which alone makes it worth to be a patron member.

Membership and discounts apply for a period of one year, and are therefore valid between  March 01, 2024 and March 01, 2025, regardless of the date of purchase.
