Budapest Park opened only seven years ago, but since then it grew to become the most popular outdoor concert venues of the Hungarian capital city. Funzine argues that this season might be its best, with an expanded list of performers and new options for relaxing even when the sun is still up.
Even though it was in danger of getting closed some time ago, the outdoor venue opens on the 3rd of May entertaining us for five months in 2018. The acts on the opening weekend will be 100% Hungarian, but there will be numerous birthday programs and album release concerts, along with even more international events than previously.
Calling out to all lovers of pop music: the currently most popular representative of mainstream pop, LP comes to Hungary for the first time on the 24th of June. Then a known formation arrives, as Modern Talking is giving a concert on the 15th of September.
Funzine reminds us that there will be blues and reggae concerts too, like Joe Bonamassa on June 14 and Alborosie & The Shengen Clan on August 22.
Those crazy for electronic music will be happy to hear that Bonobo comes to Budapest Park on the 23rd of May, and also Scooter returns (again) on the 9th of June. The Bloody Beetroots are giving a concert on the 19th, followed by Paul Kalkbrenner on August 4, and finally, you can have the rave of your life at the Die Antwoord concert on August 18.
We are moving on to the much tougher genres represented by Rise Against (June 6). The American trash metal formation, Body Count (June 17) returns to Hungary after twenty years, and is followed by the metalcore Bullet for my Valentine from Wales together with Asking Alexandria on the next day. Not much later, Queens of the Stone Age arrives to dazzle us with their new album, Villains, on the 21st of June. July kicks off with Alice in Chains on the 1st of the month. You can still get some tickets for the Billy Idol concert taking place right on the next day, on July 2.
Day-time chilling and parties
Acoustic concerts, film classics, outdoors theatre, circus productions all await you at the Nagyszünet (lit.transl. ‘big break’) area of Budapest Park. Here you can sip on a delicious lemonade, iced coffee or beer while relaxing in a nice green area and enjoying some quality cultural events.
If you cannot wait until the next concert to party your soul out, then we have some good news for you as Budapest Park has introduced a party series too, including the Necc Party, Neonhullám (‘neon wave’), Lithium- and Lidocain Night.
