Debrecen’s Flower Carnival (Debreceni Virágkarnevál) is one of the biggest summer events in Hungary, taking place in the city of Debrecen for more than 50 years now.

Attracting around 500 thousand tourists every year, this year’s edition, held between the 14th and the 21st of August, reached its climax on the 20th, with a street parade of flower trucks, dancers and folkloric groups from home and abroad.

Yep, they are made entirely of flowers.

But the highlight of the day was the Carnival Night — the huge arena show that features renowned artists and dance acts.

The star of the evening was, without doubt, Eurovision winner Alexander Rybak. In front of a packed Nagyerdei Stadion, and despite some technical bloopers, he entertained the crowds with his iconic Eurovision winning song “Fairytale”, accompanied by dancers. After finishing his song he ran to a mini-stage set up in the stands, where the guys of AWS started playing their Eurovision entry “Viszlát Nyár”, with Rybak fiddling along with them. Watch the two performances below:

That’s how you shred with Rybak, folks!

The show also featured many popular A Dal and Hungarian Eurovision stars, including:

Gergely Dánielfy

Freddie

Tamás Horváth

and András Kállay-Saunders

The festival coincided with some other big news: platinum certification for “That’s How You Write A Song”!

It’s been awhile since he’s collaborated with contemporary artists on contemporary music (his violin jams excluded). If you are not familiar check out “I Want My Tears Back” with Minninva and “The Divine Land” with Keep of Kalessin. You could actually hear him on these and appreciate what he was doing.
