New World Music Venue in Budapest

Budapest, Hungary – Budapest has a new venue, the A38 ship on the  Danube.

After two years of planning, permits and construction,  a fantastic “building” was born: the A38 ship. The venue is the reincarnation of a Ukrainian stone carrier (built in 1967)  – with a great concert hall (capacity: 700), bars, terraces, a studio and a restaurant.The king of funky saxophone, Maceo Parker will bring the audience  back to the golden era of Funk on the 30th of April and the party continues with one of the greatest European funk bands, the Hot Pants Road Club on the 1st of May.

Below is the May program. The club’s ambition is to become Budapest’s most interesting international cultural venue concentrating mainly on music, with special emphasis on collaboration with colleagues abroad and facilitating
collaboration and dialogue between foreign and Hungarian musicians.
