For the latest on arts events, consult the entertainment listings of the English-language press. Their entertainment calendars map out all that's happening in Budapest's arts and culture world—from thrash bands in wild clubs to performances at the Opera House. Hotels and tourist offices generally have copies of Where Budapest, which contains details of cultural and other events, on hand.

Tickets can be bought at the venues themselves, but many ticket offices sell them without an extra charge. Prices are still relatively low. Ticket availability depends on the performance and season—it's usually possible to get tickets a few days before a show, but performances by major international artists sell out early. Tickets to Budapest Festival Orchestra concerts and festival events also go particularly quickly.
