Ivan & the Parazol
Selling out high profile venues, Ivan & the Parazol’s Main Stage slot at Sziget Festival 2014 foreshadows a rising of a new beat generation. Ivan & The Parazol’s career started in 2010, when they met at a private music school in Budapest. Their groovy rock tunes quickly resulted them a very engaged and rife audience. Since then they released 3 albums, opened for Deep Purple in 2014, played SXSW (two times), and did hundreds of shows around the world. The band represents their exotic, post traumatic version of rock and roll so authentically that their home country, Hungary, treasures them as one of the old classics of the current era.

Központ

“‘Központ’ in Hungarian means the center. It is in the center of the city (Madách square, near Deák square) which is the center of parties and meetings, or you can have just a cup of coffee after a long day. Also, we had a few afterparties there, cause Akvárium club is quite close.” – Ivan & the Parazol

Hadik Coffee House

“The Buda side is not that sleepy. Most of our band members are living there, and we gotta tell you, its a great place to hang around. Hadik cafe is a legendary place which was the meeting place for Hungarian writers in the 1920s. Good food, good coffee, good karma.” – Ivan & the Parazol

Földes Józsi Vendéglője

“Eat a ‘pörkölt’ at Földes Józsi Vendéglője in Óbuda. Located in the old Buda part of the city, this place is a traditional Hungarian restaurant. So if your night was heavy, try to eat something there, maybe it helps, or maybe it just gets worse…” – Ivan & the Parazol
