Huge concerts in Budapest Park this season
If you’re looking for some major entertainment in Budapest but festivals aren’t on at the moment, don’t worry. The organizers at Budapest Park make sure you won’t be let down. Prepare for several great acts to hit the stage of Budapest’s biggest outside entertainment venue this season, as collected by 24.hu.
Opening next month, Budapest Park celebrates its sixth season, this time by bringing some amazing acts – both Hungarian and international – to Budapest, encouraging you all to leave reality behind. No surprise it has become a popular destination for concert-lovers, let’s then take a look at the international acts to visit us within a few months’ time.
May brings the finest of electro-swing, as Parov Stelar includes Budapest on their The Burning Spider Tour, stopping by on May 13. Even though they are rather regularly present at festivals, they entertain the Hungarian audience only in Budapest Park in 2017.
Apparently, Hungarians cannot really get enough of another regular visitor, for Scooter comes back again to the city to have a huge party on May 27. Besides, having had a wonderful time last year, Damian Jr. Gong Marley returns to Park on June 20, possibly with songs off Stony Hill, his fourth album.
But June is also the month for punk-rockers, teenagers of the 2000s were surely moved when the news broke out that Good Charlotte and Simple Plan are taking the stage of Park. Simple Plan, celebrating the 15th anniversary of their debut album No Pads, No Helmets…Just Balls, kicks off the party on June 13 with guests, such as Mallory Knox, Four Year Strong, and Milestones.
Following that Good Charlotte will make us sing all the lines to the good oldies (Anthem, I Just Wanna Live, Girls & Boys, Dance Floor Anthem, The River) and the new classics (Life Changes, Makeshift Love, Life Can’t Get Much Better) as loud as we can on June 17. The Madden brothers-led band also bring some special acts, including Pierce The Veil, Sleeping With Sirens, and Issues.
Then as July begins, the Grammy-nominated Foster The People step on a Hungarian stage for the first time ever on July 4. Fans of indie pop should especially be happy about the California-based trio finally coming to Budapest, but even those who only love Pumped Up Kicks or Call It What You Want might have a wonderful time attending the gig.
But the month will also host the infamous, absurdly-dressed up, crowd-moving, the Lord of Darkness giving some Sweet Dreams and Tainted Love to his audience in Budapest Park. It was definitely one of the most significant announcements that Marilyn Manson returns to Hungary after 12 years and brings his new album SAY10 (work title) to Budapest on July 20.
Luckily there’s still a lot to go till summer is over, but before the season ends, Park welcomes another celebration, as DJ BoBo entertains fans on September 26 as part of his 25-year-anniversary tour. So make sure not to miss the gigs and get your tickets on time, because they get sold out rather quickly.
