Istanbul Festivals and Events

Winter apart, Istanbul is awash with arts festivals and music events, giving visitors a vast amount of choice when it comes to entertainment. The purpose of this article is not to list every single Istanbul festival or event. Instead, I’ll highlight the most important or best-known activities which you shouldn’t miss, organized by season.

Promotion and Tickets

A great number of these events are brilliantly managed and promoted via the Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts [1] (Istanbul Kültür ve Sanat Vakfı), which consistently attracts a roster of international big names. Tickets to most events are available from Biletix [2].
