The Great Yonder is a festival, a retreat and an inspiring holiday, taking place in a fairytale-like location, where artists have the freedom to make the music they want to make, and where guests can enjoy nature and space to their hearts’ content. A true party, without sponsors and 200 visitors, with readings by inspiring speakers, qi gong and yoga classes, games and activities, good food and excellent local wines and beers.

The spot

It all takes place in Bedepuszta, a renovated, remote village on a dead-end road in a beautiful valley, where you can walk through forests and fields for hours, without seeing any buildings or meeting any people. Still Bedepuszta is more than an idyllic place, it’s also an ecological and cultural project, with The Great Yonder being the kick off.

More about the place


Musicians from various bands and genres come together to make music on the stage, on top of a hill or under a pear tree together. Furthermore there is yoga, people baking bread, the swimming pool is open and there are numerous games. There are also inspiring speakers and excursions, and you can try Hungarian wines. Modern and traditional cooks cook with local products.

More about the stay

Do you want to be there?

A remote village in the Hungarian Carpathians may sound far away, but the travel time from Budapest is only one hour. Pick-up busses drive from Budapest Airport from the evening of the 14th till the last flight on the 15th. Tickets include a 4 day programme (15-18 August) and 7 days of camping (14-21 August) and cost 250 euros. Camping is allowed from 14 August 6 pm. We want to keep The Great Yonder small and personal, so the number of tickets is limited to 300.
