'Festival of Abnormal Music', Budapest, 8 - 11 May
Inverted Spectrum Records presents the first edition of Festival of Abnormal Music (FAM), scheduled to happen in Budapest from the 8th to 11th of May, 2024, in Turbina, Gödör, Auróra, Gólya, Dobozi 21, Blutorange, Susuka, and Népszíntér, with 26 bands and djs from Budapest, Dunaújváros, Debrecen, Belgrade, Ankara and Tokyo.

FAM is a multi-genre alternative music festival that deliberately violates the borders between established musical styles, subcultures, and social circles, and features diverse forms of music such as heavy psychedelic rock, avant-garde jazz, experimental electronics, industrial music, math rock, synth punk, outsider singer-songwriters, free improvisation, and progressive pop.

It is not an experimental music event in the narrow sense; a lot of the music you will find in FAM is very rock'n'roll. Rather, the emphasis is on authentic, uncompromising musical acts that do not fit clearly even into non-mainstream genres; the festival aims to capture a hard-to-define but striking artistic quality which we can call "abnormality".

The festival will begin on May 8, Wednesday, in Dobozi 21, with the opening of the exhibition by the Serbian outsider artist and musician Arhivista (Dunavski Buzukije). The schedule of all four days of the event can be found below. Detailed information about all participating artists to be posted soon.

Entrance is HUF 4500 per day and tickets are available only at the door. Events in Dobozi 21, Susuka, and Blutorange are donation-based.

The afterparty in Népszíntér is free of charge.
