A reincarnation of a Ukrainian stone-carrier ship, the inauguration of A38 in 2003 gave this vessel a new life on the Danube. Sixteen years later, this venue specialises in popular live music and has become synonymous with the entire cultural scene of Budapest, hosting events encompassing professional meetings, cinema industry, literature, and even gastronomy. Their programming varies in terms of styles, genres, and represented nationalities, with a significant focus on emerging acts and insistence on quality standards.
Since Liveurope's establishment, A38 has proven to be a venue in Europe with some of the most diverse and progressive programming on the continent, hosting hundreds of up-and-coming artists from all corners of Europe and the world. It is one of the most prominent faces of the Hungarian live music scene and Budapest's champion of concerts.
