The Colors of Ostrava music festival and the Karlovy Vary Film Festival are the two biggest events of the Czech Republic's summer season.

Czech Republic

The 58th Karlovy Vary International Film Festival will take place in the beautiful Western Bohemian spa town from June 28 to July 6, 2024. The festival which traditionally attracts many international movie celebrities, has Australian actor Geoffrey Rush as its headliner this year.

At Karlovy Vary Airport (LKKV/KLV), located just 10 km outside the city center, Euro Jet runs its own complimentary VIP crew lounge with comfortable couches for relaxation as well as a computer work area with full Wi-Fi capabilities. With regards to ground services, the most important recommendation is to make your hotel reservations as soon as possible.

At the airports in Prague and in Karlovy Vary, your flights will be supported by our Country Manager, Vlastimil Sovak and his team. At Ostrava airport, our Ground Service Coordinators, Petr Bohm and Petr Osterezy are ready to assist you anytime.

The Czech Republic’s biggest music festival, Colors of Ostrava, is scheduled to take place this July 17-20, 2024. Headlined by Sam Smith and Lenny Kravitz, the festival brings four days packed with great music, art, theatre, and films.

Leos Janacek Ostrava Airport (LKMT/OSR) is located 30 minutes away from Dolni Vitkovice where the festival takes place. The airport provides sufficient space for both short-term and long-term parking. There is one main terminal for all types of flights and two VIP lounges available. Accommodation directly in the city of Ostrava should be booked as soon as possible.

The Balaton Sound music festival kicks off Hungary's summer season while the Sziget music festival brings people from all over the world to Budapest's Island of Freedom in August.


The summer season in Hungary kicks off with the Balaton Sound music festival taking place from July 3 to 6, 2024, on the beach in Zamardi at Lake Balaton. The unique location on the shores of the “Hungarian Sea” offers an extraordinary setting for four days filled with world-class electronic music.

The closest airport, Heviz-Balaton Airport (LHSM/SOB) is located 55 minutes away from the festival venue. Euro Jet’s Ground Support Coordinator, Adam Farkas is ready to assist with any necessary flight support services.

Euro Jet's local team at both Budapest and Heviz-Balaton airports have many years of experience to offer smooth support for your flights.

In August, Budapest will host one of its largest events of the year. The Sziget music festival is expected to bring together over 100 nationalities to the Island of Freedom on the Danube River from August 7-12, 2024.

Led by Euro Jet’s Country Manager, Peter Pazurek, our team based out of Budapest’s Ferenc Liszt International Airport (LHBP/BUD) will be there to ensure your arrival and departure to and from Budapest are as worry-free as the festival itself. 

If you are heading for the Lovestream music festival in August, our Ground Service Coordinators at Bratislava airport, Eva Dureckova and Lenka Glasova together with our Country Manager, Filip Klimko will be there to guarantee a seamless travel experience.


From August 16-18, 2024, Slovakia’s capital city of Bratislava will host the third year of the LOVESTREAM music festival. Over 100,000 festival goers are expected to gather for three days at the Old Vajnory Airport to dance to the music of 30+ world-renowned pop stars.

The Old Vajnory Airport is located 6km away from Bratislava’s main M.R. Stefanik Airport (LZIB/BTS), an eight-minute drive to the festival. While most hotels are situated 15 minutes away in downtown Bratislava, there are also accommodation options in the vicinity of the festival as well as the airport. We recommend completing your hotel booking as soon as possible.

The EXIT festival is Serbia's biggest music event of the summer season. Taking place in Novi Sad, the closest airport is in Belgrade where Euro Jet has its dedicated ground support team led by Country Manager, Strahinja Djordjevic.


From July 10-14, 2024, the city of Novi Sad in the northern part of Serbia will host EXIT, a massive music festival featuring over 1000 artists performing at 40 stages in the Petrovaradin Fortress.

Novi Sad is located approximately one hour from Belgrade Airport (LYBE/BEG) where Euro Jet has an office for crews to relax or get some work done. Based on our team's experience supporting flights for the EXIT festival in previous years, we strongly advise our customers to reach out to us as soon as possible for hotel bookings and available parking positions.

Sarajevo Film Festival is the largest event of its kind in Southeast Europe. At Sarajevo airport, our dedicated team will be happy to offer their assistance for your flights related to this festival.

Bosnia and Herzegovina
