Electronic Beats Reveals Full Details For Budapest Festival

Here’s a full rundown of all the exciting things happening at Telekom Electronic Beats Festival Budapest.

Telekom Electronic Beats is headed to Hungary, are you ready? Our previews and teasers have whetted your appetite, but now we’re ready to show you everything we have planned for our festival in Budapest. As you already know, we have an exciting music program scheduled, but we have even more artists to announce: we’ve added Hungarian electronic audiovisual duo Changing Grey, Budapest-based electronic pop producer Mïus, local indie rock outfit Fran Palermo and Berlin minimal maestros Brandt Brauer Frick plus DJs Ripperton, Subotage and Florian Meier.

We also have a cultural calendar stuffed full of tech workshops, fashion events, movie screenings, gallery exhibitions and more. The whole festival kicks off on Thursday, November 3 and runs through Saturday, November 5. Head to Premier Kultcafé for a screening of Raving Iran, the first in our EB Cinema series—and an excellent documentary that we’ve covered here previously. We’ll also be showing Werner Herzog’s new internet documentary Lo and Behold: Reveries Of The Connected Wold and Davide Manuli’s mysterious The Legend Of Kaspar Hauser.

The majority of our program happens on Friday and Saturday at Akvárium. There you’ll not only be able to hear the bands and DJs we’ve got on deck, but also be able to take part in the tech portion of our program. Local recycling startup Ususty will be on hand to take your old phones and show you how to make music with their spare parts. Jump into a new world with Samsung Galaxy Studio’s Gear VR virtual reality station. Or step into the Analogue Zone—a Hungarian synth studio—for workshops on modular synthesis and a live set by local artist Banyek. You can also learn about Ableton Live from certified training center imPro, check out 3D light painting with Kitchen Budapest and get into 3D printing with 3DPrintBudapest.

More of an art lover? Then be sure to check out Omnivore Gallery’s Fetish Nip collection and Központ Bar and Telep Gallery’s retrospective on Roki, one of Budapest’s most active graphic designers of the past 15 years. Or, alternatively, get a fix of fashion: Just steps from Akvárium you’ll find Art On Me, a small boutique specializing in comfortable women’s clothing. On Thursday they’ll be throwing a “Welcome Winter Party.” On Friday head to The Garden Studio to shop its Hungarian and Scandinavian collections while listening to live acoustic sessions. Also, you can get your vintage fashion fix right at Akvárium thanks to Antifactory X Schatzi Crazy Glitter Pop Up.

Throughout the week, Központ Bar will also be offering a musical program that features Rotterdam’s Selected Sounds label and Budapest’s own Farbwechsel imprint. Check below for more details.
