Our dedicated team is ready to help you from the planning stage to the distribution on various platforms (Vimeo, Youtube, Facebook) and/or your own website. Having the support of Papageno’s large audience and our 40k+ fan base on Facebook makes creating visibility much easier – our videos had more than 1m viewers in the last year. We are proud to have partners like the Geza Anda Piano Competition (Zürich), Hungarian State Opera, ICMA, Violin Channel, and countless orchestras.

Papageno Magazin

The good-old print media is not dead at all: on the contrary, we had printed and/ or distributed just short of one million copies of our freely distributed program magazines and special issues last year. Believe us: there are still culture-lover people out there who want to turn real A5-pages instead of swiping. Our unique distribution network of ca. 350 points – including high profile concert venues, Libri-bookstores, ticket offices and plazas – ensures that we have literally no remittenda.

Bach 2 Future – conference

The most popular online platform of the cultural scene in Hungar. First held in 2019, our Bach 2 Future conference presents new, exciting projects and initiatives, focusing mainly on the challenges and opportunities of the digital era. With connecting the best classical music professionals we try to find the best practices and new ways for classical music.

Sziget Festival – classical, opera & jazz stage

The most popular online platform of the cultural scene in Hungary. We really loved the opportunity to bring classical music to the Sziget, one of the most popular and exciting music festivals of Europe. From 2001 to 2019 we’ve invited hundreds of performers, reaching tens of thousands of ffestival goers from all over the world, proving that classical music and opera is cool enough to listen to before (or after) Ed Sheeran or Avicii.

Papageno Klasszik & Capriccio

The most popular online platform of the cultural scene in Hungary Radio Klassik 92.1 is a widely popular choice of listening for the almost 3 million people living in the Budapest area. Papageno’s CEO was one of the founders of the station back in 2009, and now we have two weekly radio shows: Capriccio – a talk show with great guests and lots of exciting music – and Papageno Klasszik, a 2-hour show with bits and bites of cultural information about the coming week.- you can be assured that your message will reach a large and well-targeted music/theatre/art-lover audience.
