Double WAMP on flying carpet!
16-17th May 2009
from 11am to 7pm Erzsébet square
WAMP appears twice in May: in the middle of the month WAMP will extend for a whole weekend. On the first day WAMP joins Exit Street Festival, where the focus of the festival is to introduce urban street trend through music, fashion and other performing art performances. On the second day of WAMP a grass flying carpet will arrive at the design market.
Saturday: the Exit Street Festival will feature live music all day. So selecting your new urban wear collection can not only be more funny with great music, but you will also be fit for the night party at the Gödör Klub. Although WAMP designers are inspired continuously by urban wear, you will find a greater variety of urban wear collections on this special WAMP design market. During the day the students of Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music begin the festival with strings, winds, percussion and jazz music, in the evening new talents will play like Suhancos and indie band, Jacked, the discoveree of last year. Between the concerts stand-up comedies and other open-air events will entertain the public.
On Sunday: The baby version of the gigantic flying grass carpet will be landing on WAMP. The carpet is travelling throughout Europe to arrive to Budapest on the 16th May at the Pecha Kucha night organised by KÉK. The original big carpet will come to Pécs2010, for the European Capital of Culture. A nice picnic, an open-air filmfestival, a frisbee tournament, or a music festival can all be organised on this carpet. Further information and pictures here.
And of course our 100 designers will be all waiting for you with their new summer collections, not to mention the design books and cocktailbar. On Sunday yet WAMP’s children corner organised by Pagony and Noha Studio will be calling for creative kids from 11am to 1pm and from 3pm to 6pm to work with recycling materials: pins, purses, puppets.
News of the month: WAMP has been invited to be present on the New York design week between 16-19th May in the framework of the Extremely Hungary cultural festival. We will be showcasing 17 emerging Hungarian designers under the concept „Soft”, where the great variety of Hungarian design will be shown.
