Zagar, Kaktus

One of Hungary's best alternative electronika projects, the Žagar band will rock the boat on this night featuring an excellent young band as support: the Kaktus.


Žagar is one of the most significant acts of the Eastern European electronica scene. The four-pieces band hitting with powerful, psychedelic gigs. Their unique live sound is a mixture of dub, cosmic funk and techno.

The band have received staunch support from the likes of BBC 6Music’s Don Letts, Amazing Radio and Future Music, whilst also being nominated for ‘Best Local Act’ at the MTV European Music Awards following the success of their hit single Wings of Love. They have also composed many soundtracks for feature films and TV shows - the most notable is the American CSI series.

For their 15 year anniversary will be releasing an exclusive remix edition of the whole Žagar catalogue featuring cutting-edge producers like: Vakula, Dan Caster, Moonbootica, Nico Pusch, and Terry Lee Brown Jr.

In the meantime they are working on a new album scheduled for 2018.
