Today is the first day of the Buda Castle Beer Festival in Budapest. This is a highlight of the season for beer lovers coming in from all the nation, and of course from outside Hungary.
Normally this festival has been arranged in the autumn, but the arrangers said that wanted to make this festival a wonderful way to start the summer, so that is the main reason for moving the festival to the middle of June.
The entrance fee is 2000 HUF for one day and inside the festival area you can taste way too much beer, eat snacks and drink some wine and Palinka as well.
If you are in town, check out this festival from June 13th till 16th.
He was born in 1949, was a founding member of Dire Straits and played in the band until it dissolved in 1995.

Mark Knopfler is the guy and in June 2013 he will come to Budapest again to perform in Papp Laszlo Budapest Sportarena. The concert will start at 20.00 on June 22nd.
