Once the awful and way too long exam period is over in early July, students head to EFOTT Festival and let their hair down at the biggest student party in Hungary. EFOTT is a Hungarian acronym for the National Touristic Meeting of University and College Students. The festival has been moving from one Hungarian town to another for more than 30 years hence it has been labeled a touristic festival. This year's location is Velence again, a town situated next to a lake, only 40 minutes from Budapest. At this year's EFOTT you can expect lots of live acts by famous international and Hungarian bands, musicians and DJ-s and well-known stand-up comedians.
