Jazz Picnic Venues

MOL Nagyon Balaton Big Stage

The huge clearing near Paloznak in the direction of Lovas turns into the venue of our big concerts each year, with the starry sky providing the ceiling and the lawn under our feet. Sitting in the grass in the afternoon or holding a glass of wine while dancing in the evening to international star performers and the luminaries of the Hungarian jazz scene. In recent years the venue has hosted Candy Dulfer, Jazzanova, Al McKey’ Earth Wind And Fire Experience, Icognito, St. Germain, Dephazz, Mezzoforte, Juli Fábián, Mrs. Columbo, Amoeba, Bin Jip, and the list goes on.

The clearing in front of the Main Stage also hosts most of the gastro exhibitors, the motto truly being: ‘Picnicking is encouraged!’

Fábián Juli Stage

The courtyard of the Tájház is the point of origin for the Jazz Picnic: this is where it all started, and in the beginning this was the sole venue of the concerts. The flowery yard with its authentic whitewashed house provides a truly cozy club atmosphere, and this is where events most typically go on into the small hours.

Audi Jazz Stage

On the Main Street (‘Fő utca’) of Paloznak, near the Sáfránkert Restaurant and just as you stroll between the Tájház and the Main Stage, this stage partly protruding to the street was a huge success already in 2016. The rural atmosphere mingles with the bustle of the festival, featuring promising jazz duos and jazz standards. By evening, half the street is filled with couples rocking back and forth on their feet.

Taittinger Jazz and Champagne Bar

Champagne and Mediterranean jazz. We have created a truly exclusive venue in 2017 on the small hill and on the terrace near the church where the main actors are champagne, relaxation and pleasant music.
