“Sziget is like the carnival, and the best music festival of the city. In 2014 our music was the anthem of the festival and we played on the main stage, which is still a great memory…” – Ivan & the Parazol

“I would recommend Ecocafe Organic Specialty Coffee Shop on Andrássy Road. Andrássy Road from Deák square to Heroes Square is very spectacular in good weather, and there are a lot beautiful old buildings, bars, restaurants as you go along.” – The Trousers

“If you visit the narrow old streets of the 6th and 7th district, next to the notorious party quarter, you can find trendy vintage clothes stores like Retrock. Clothes are much more exciting and stylish there than the stuff you can get from Zara or H&M on Váczi Street or Vörösmarty Square.” – The Trousers

“It’s an old Soviet ship transformed into a venue. Really great atmosphere and sound…some of my favourite shows in recent years there are Jane Birkin are Cigarettes After Sex!” – Amber Smith

“It is very special that you have to enter a cool old ship to see a concert. The atmosphere is unique, plus they have the greatest sound all over here. It is said to be among the best club venues in the world. My band had a chance to play there several times, in 2018 we supported Wayne Kramer’s MC50.” – The Trousers

Robot Club

“It is in the middle of downtown, easy to access, everything is close, food, public transport… The staff is cool and helpful, you get the classic rock club feeling as a musician and as a concert viewer too. It is a part of a complex with Instant Bar, where there are chances for bigger events, too. Robot is one of the last real rock clubs in the city, actually.” – The Trousers
