Sziget of the 19th century: Constantinople in Budapest

By János Gömöri / 2013-09-16

BME Egyetemi Napok festival kicks off today on the campus between Petőfi and Rákóczi bridges. While the area has a lot of university buildings today, for most of its history it used to be a desolate marshland, then was under water, and then became “Constantinople in Budapest“, the world’s largest entertainment district in its time, an […]


Partial Nudity by Eli Cortiñas at Mélycsarnok Budapest

By Adorjan Ficzere / 2013-09-11

Partial Nudity explores human relationships and dreamlike atmospheres through video manipulation, it is exposing an intimate view of the artist’s thoughts and through her eyes we witness selections of videos reworked into something totally her own creation. By this method of appropriation, Eli Cortiñas transforms feature films from the 1950’s to the 80’s into smaller […]


Sziget freedom

By János Gömöri / 2013-08-20

Sziget, as you might already know, is the island of freedom. The entry, of course, is not free. The food is not free. Drinks are not free. And no free beer. All of these things are pretty expensive for the average Eastern European actually. What sort of freedom does Sziget offer then? For example you […]


Sziget Festival – From the eye of the beholder

By Marko / 2013-08-16

There are so many posts and articles on Sziget..

Fezen 2013

By János Gömöri / 2013-08-11

I couldn’t help comparing Fezen to VOLT at first, and Fezen seemed very small and even desolate on the first day early in the afternoon (called day 0 here). But on Satur-(Deep Purple)-day the place was teeming with people. Another difference is that when there aren’t any concerts yet or when there isn’t a concert you’re […]

Next week: Fezen festival

By János Gömöri / 2013-07-25

FEZEN festival in Székesfehérvár will start next week, on the last day of July. After trying to mimic large festivals (like Sziget), this year Fezen seems to return to its roots: its main focus will be rock/metal and alternative music and it will feature many Hungarian bands. Some of these bands are regulars at festivals […]
