About the Szeged International Guitar Festival
The Szeged International Guitar Festival (Szeged IGF) is a multi-venue, regional festival in Hungary and Serbia for open-minded and curious fans of the guitar, which presents diverse music genres, innovative combinations of various art forms, an exciting competition and a showcase for the young stars of classical guitar, as well as a networking platform for amateurs and professionals. Since 2018, the festival has presented its wide range of programmes not only in the city of Szeged, but also in its neighbouring regions. These performances are often sold out quickly as Szeged IGF invites great guitar maestros from all over the world. The Szeged IGF was founded by the guitarist-composer Dávid Pavlovits in 1999. The aim of the festival is not only to create a long-lasting tradition in Szeged, but also to bring internationally acclaimed musicians to local audiences every year.
