The University of Pécs is not only a great place to study because of its outstanding academic quality, but also because of the student life in Pécs. Every year, the university organizes the three-day “Pécs Egyetemi Napok” (PEN) – a university festival starting April 28th this year. It is the biggest music and culture festival of the university and shows that Pécs is as lively as Budapest or other Hungarian cities.
More than 100 local and internationals acts, formations and DJs will come to the festival to perform their cultural and social programs. Since 2006, it became one of the most important university festivals in Hungary, not least because of the great line-up every year.
The organizers of the festival always try to create a very varied festival with many music genres: hip-hop, electronic and rock. Almost every genre presents a performance, so that there is music for every taste. The different acts will perform on a half dozen stages throughout the famous Zsolnay Quarter.
