Orczy Summer Chill

Garden cinema, lots and lots of music in all genres, comfortable picnic between pillows, recharge in nature, all for free and in an easily accessible location - from June to the end of September, the Orczy Summer Chill awaits everyone in the magical park of the University of Public Service.

The motto of the Orczy Summer Chill gives a great summary of what the event has to offer: "Escape from the city and its noise, have fun and spend 33 summer evenings on the shores of Lake Orczy!" Popular programs from a wide range of musical genres will provide an unforgettable experience at the event: acoustic pop, soul and jazz, as well as classical music. As the opening attraction of the event, 20-23 of June, the former member of “Generál” and “Piramis”, Sándor Révész, will give a concert with two guitarists and singers, Ákos Horváth and Gergő Nagy, in his program “Private of Rock and Roll”. On the 21st, the Men Choir of the Hungarian Defence Forces will provide entertainment, while on the 22nd, Herbie Hancock's student Árpád Tzumo will arrive. The Garden Cinema series will start on the 23rd, with the film “Csinibaba” for the first time, which was originally shot in the Orczy Garden. “Liliomfi”, “Macskafogó”, and “Hyppolit” will also be shown in cinemas for the next few weeks, while for “Kincsem”, “Liza a rókatündér”, and “Moszkva tér” will be on screen with English Sub-titles.

The musical programs include the Tóth Vera Quartet, the Sárik Péter Trio, but also Iván Kamarás, Róbert Szakcsi Lakatos and Barna Pély, Ági Szalóky, and the Budapest Ragtime Band promises an unforgettable evening.
