British pop star, Rita Ora, will perform in Szeged, southern Hungary, on Saturday. This is the first time the singer will be seen by a Hungarian audience in the framework of the Youth Days of Szeged, held between August 23 and 26, reports Magyar Nemzet.

Rita Ora released her new song “You Only Love Me” at the end of January this year. The fresh track, viewed more than four million times in a month on the biggest video sharing site, will soon be followed by a new album.

The English pop star, known for her upbeat concerts, is likely to perform this song for the first time live for a home audience,

at the Youth Days of Szeged.

South American DJ Alok is a true superstar: ranked number four on DJ Mag‘s list of the world’s top DJs. He is also at the forefront of the international electronic music scene with 70 million social media followers and is the most listened to Brazilian artist in the world. He will also perform at the Hungarian festival.

Last year, organizers announced that the city on the banks of the river Tisza would welcome Lukas Graham, who burst onto the international music scene in 2016 with huge success.

Their seven platinum-selling and three Grammy-nominated hit “7 Years” has now been streamed more than three billion times worldwide. The debut album was followed by sold-out concerts around the world. Critical acclaim for the band has appeared in The New York Times, Rolling Stone, and Billboard, among others. They also performed at the Grammy Awards and MTV Video Music Awards, where Lukas Graham was nominated for Best New Artist.

Their latest album will be released this year and will be heard live for the first time at the Youth Days of Szeged.

Timmy Trumpet, who is now strongly connected to Hungary and performs here several times a year, will finally make an appearance at the Youth Days of Szeged as well. The Australian DJ and producer, whose trademark, the trumpet, often pops up during his live sets, is an unmissable act for the home audience. The trumpet juggler is one of the most ‘explosive performers’ on the music scene today, with huge parties linked to his name.


The Youth Days of Szeged is the oldest festival in Hungary, which has been held in Szeged every August since 1968. One of the earliest versions of the festival was first held in 1964, under the name Szeged Youth Carnival.
