SHIIINE ON WEEKENDER: BUDAPEST – ft. Shed Seven, Peter Hook, Cast, Bez + much more (6-9 May)

With everyone aching for the return of holidays and live music, this Spring, POLLEN in collaboration with SHIIINE ON will be bringing you the best of both worlds… Presenting:


Bringing the best names in Indie, Dance and beyond to the sunny climes of Eastern Europe, long-established promoters SHIIINE ON will be inviting music fans on the trip of a lifetime when it springs up in the scenic surroundings of Hungary’s historic capital for the very first time.

Part package holiday, part live event, this unique experience will be taking place between 6th-9th May 2022 and promises a packed schedule of exhilarating live gigs in Budapest’s best venues, hand-picked and hassle-free accommodation, boat party, boozy Britpop-inspired brunches, AND all capped-off with a day of live music in the heart of the city.

With classic indie heroes already confirmed and waiting for you to touchdown, a stellar line up of acts including: SHED SEVEN, PETER HOOK & THE LIGHT, CAST, SPACE, EMF, JIM BOB (of Carter USM) and Happy Monday’s man BEZ – will all be performing for your unknown pleasures.

Plus, there’ll be plenty of opportunity to discover new sounds as fans discover the sights. A cherry-picked selection of the UK’s finest up-and-coming sounds will introduce Stoke’s psych/rock sensations PSYENCE, Liverpool’s loudest new upstarts THE SHAKES, as well as Britpop-inspired Italian band THE CHARLESTONES, for appearances across the city. 

With live sets dotted throughout the experience, the weekend will reach an ultimate climax with a one-day showdown of live music in the beautiful surroundings of The People’s Park; bringing Britain’s biggest alternative anthems to Hungary’s largest public green space.

Keeping the party vibes flowing all weekend, expect venerated DJs and clubnight kings the likes of ANDY BUSH’S INDIE DISCO, STARSHAPED DJ’S, SHIIINE ON: RAVE ON, Hungary’s hit indie DJs TESCO DISCO and certified SHIIINE ON DJ’S to be taking over Budapest’s most cutting-edge underground spaces by night and even more unusual overground spaces by day…


While a 72 hour stay in one of Europe’s most exciting destinations will offer plenty of time for exploration, there’ll also be some tantalising added bonuses arranged by SHIIINE ON WEEKENDER: BUDAPEST to take advantage of too.

Why not jump aboard a DANUBE PARTY CRUISE as-hosted by BEZ and set sail around the city to a score of classic indie bangers blasted-out on the decks by resident SHIiINE ON DJs?

Or get the ultimate introduction to the SHIIINE ON weekend with WELCOMING DRINKS til the early hours?

Relive the Blur-ry eyed excesses of the 90s with a BOOZY PICNIC BRUNCH!
