MCC Feszt After, organized jointly by Mathias Corvinus Collegium and Mandiner, will host Tucker Carlson, one of the world's most influential media personalities, on August 22 at Millenáris Park in Budapest. The event is free of charge and open to the public with Hungarian translation provided.

This year's MCC Feszt was a huge success, with over 47,000 visitors, 250 speakers, more than 120 professional programs, and around 50 music events and 100 exhibitors. In MCC’s first ever post-Feszt event, MCC Feszt After, will greet visitors with exciting panel discussions and cultural programs. The highlight of MCC Feszt After will be the return of Tucker Carlson to Hungary and Budapest. After his sold-out performance at the first MCC Feszt in 2021, MCC will once again bring America’s most-watched commentator, and, according to Time Magazine, the most influential conservative thinker in the United States. He recently left Fox News in April of this year and has continued his groundbreaking career on Twitter with his own show, which currently boasts more than 9 million followers. The American expert regularly speaks about Hungary and has praised Hungary as one of the last democratic bulwarks of the West. As part of MCC Feszt After, Tucker Carson will give a brief speech beginning at 6pm, which will be followed by a discussion with Balázs Orbán, chairman of MCC's board of trustees, about important topical issues.

Before Carlson’s presentation, MCC Feszt After will feature two panels. The first panel will discuss the current state of global politics and whether Hungary has become isolated in recent years. The panelists will include Miklós Szánthó, director general of the Center for Fundamental Rights, András Pulai, head of the Publicus Institute and András Schiffer, former m ember of Hungary’s National Assembly. The second panel will delve into the culture wars and will be presented by Gladden Pappin, president of the Hungarian Institute of Foreign Affairs, Rod Dreher, former editor-in-chief of The American Conservative, and James Carafano, senior advisor to the Heritage Foundation.

The event will be closed with musical performances by András Nagy Csomor Orchestra and the Parno Graszt Orchestra. The event is open to the public and free-of-charge, interpretation will be provided for English-language discussions.
