'Hey, June!', Concerts @ Mupa, 18 - 21 June
Budapest's Palace of Arts 'Start of Summer Festival' introduces the pick of the most popular Hungarian pop music performers, who, we're told, are set to play something really special at this summer concert series. Read on for details, and for the program of events.

The annual 'Hey, June!' concerts offer the experience of a lifetime, or at least of this summer, with the Swedish-Hungarian singer, Antonia Vai - pictured above - mixing world music with soul and pop, playing at Müpa with a set of impressive visuals, and besides her greatest hits, we can listen to some exciting songs from her new album, Ritual.

The Konyha band will also not disappoint, playing along the axis of rock-country-funk-blues axis, they'll brighten the evening with wind instruments and also some musician friends.

The 10 years old Kéknyúl band will show us what 'criminal funk' is all about. At this specially envisioned concert, we can listen to the soundtrack album of a fictional crime movie, and the story comes alive with the participation of guest artists, and with the help of their singer, Andrew Hefler, the musicians themselves also do a bit of acting.

The cinematic visions will not end there, as the Elefánt band admittedly engage in soundtracks written for non-existent films. Fast rhythms, meditative slowness, punk energies and chanson mood: they are simply unmissable.

One of Europe's most popular modern progressive bands, the Special Providence, create magic with guests such as Róbert Hrutka, Gulli Briem from Mezzofort, and Bálint Csongor (ex-Subscribe, USEME).
