Park, open from early May to late September, will open on 11000 m2 near the Palace of Arts (MÜPA), on Soroksári út.
Park will house an artists’ club, as well as a podium-stage, where performances by independent theatrical groups and book signings will take place. Furthermore, Park will accomodate artist communities, give opportunity to civilian initiations to introduce themselves and it will also assist with their jobs. The musical genres will not be restricted to suit only people in their 20s or 30s, the aim here is to reach out to middle-aged people, too.
The new venue will perfectly suit the cultural concept of this part of the city what with the National Theater and MÜPA in the vicinity will be only complemented by the musical programs of the Park. They claim to have extensive experience of organizing concerts, as one of the two founders is the former co-owner and a manager of Zöld Pardon, while the other is the co-owner of the Morrison’s clubs.As a part of the project bands, artists and young talents will given the opportunity to make a name for themselves, and thanks to the low price range of the tickets a broad audience will get to see the summer-long festival – say the organizers.
There are going to be five dancefloors – the big one will be home to Hungarian and foreign bands and DJs, then there will be an indoor room for electronica, a so-called “Retro Garden” with two separate floors and finally a place for Hungarian alternative music that suitable for watching sports events, too.
The May line-up in Park includes names such as Richard Dorfmeister who comes to Budapest with Ras MC T-Weed, the Dub Pistols, the Kowalsky meg a Vega, the Hooligans and the Republic. The most essential factor during the design of Park was to create a permanent festival venue that could provide high quality service for events of a large number of people and lives up to the technical and security expectations. As the designer put it it can be assembled and taken apart easily and it bears a unique architectural character, too, making use of environment-friendly solutions.
