SUMMER RAD™ 2020 - Showroom pop-up festival in Budapest: news thread

edited August 13 in Rad Events

Complete line-up (bands, performers, associations, special guests, etc.)!!!

Coming soon... location was planned to be the same as last year, but global events forced us to rethink our holidays!

The venue we managed to cooperate with last year sais the following on it's official page (basically explaining how they are currently building a new venue unlike the relaxed camp site type they used to have) - post from May 29th:

"Sziasztok!

Az idei év az Élesztő Plázs háza táján az építkezésről szól, így nem nyitjuk fel kedvenc buszunk oldalát. A következő szezonra viszont rengeteg újdonsággal készülünk. Higgyétek el, megéri kivárni!
Addig is várunk Titeket másik zebegényi egységünkban, a Danu kerékbárban!"

    As to the fact that the above posted venue we used to favour multiple times is now compromised, we decided to have a rather casual cycling event this year!

    We definitely don't want to give up on the tradition having our meetings expanding into a multiartist gathering.

    So we decided to do something in the city - also in accordance with the restrictions caused by Covid -!

    Let's cycle from venue to venue introducing you to the newest multicultural and conceptual brunch places and pubs. Plan is to have DJs and an exhibition as well... as always!

    Stay tuned, we are currently arranging a suitable date with each venue! Social media post will be added soon after.

    Hey everyone!
    We are still waiting for an answer from one venue if they want to choose a band or if we should! Guess this will take a few days... the showroom gig will be combined with other events in town. Stay tuned!

  • EVENT OFFICIALLY ANNOUNCED!!!

  • We did some checking on the Zebegény venue - snooping around what to expect for next year!!!

    The cool caravan and the tents are gone... the road blocks are different and the nearby parking lot as well as the docking area of the ferry (crossing the Danube) are all redesigned!

    it's not the same... and it's obviously insitutionalizing...
    _

    _beach looks the same... wonder if that's next? ...


    ... as the parking lot is totally different... turning Budapest...


    ... this is how it looks now.

  • But at least you can rent a bike - in case we bring the party to Zebegény again next year (2021)!

  • And there's a new bar inside the train station building - former vegetable shop

  • NEXT YEAR WE WILL TRY TO GET THE SAME SPACE RESERVED FOR US ON THE RIVERBANK
