Žagar season-closing gig, Marge, Those Goddamn Hippies (AT)

One of the very best Hungarian live electronica bands Zagar gives a huge season-closing party on this night where they will present their latest songs written for a new film that'll be presented as well along with great old hits. Their support will be the excellent and charming Marge and the freatest lunatics from Austria, The Goddamn Hippies.


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.

Those Goddamn Hippies (AT)

Those Goddamn Hippies stitch together carefully chosen sounds with desperately honest vocals. Mixing acoustic and electronic elements to create a lush melancholic atmosphere for weaving melodies and personal lyrics. At times fragile and at times bold with declarations of hope, British born artist Tom Marsh’s solo project is refreshingly insightful.

The ‘Hippies’ sound explores the area between singer songwriter and electronica. Utilizing synthesizers to translate simple guitar riffs, looping short melodic patterns to create intricate sequences, Tom draws on his rich musical background as part of his inspiration.

After spending almost a decade touring the globe as a drummer, swapping London for a studio in Berlin and finally finding the peace and quite needed to begin writing in Vienna, Tom decided to focus all of his curiosity and energy into one project.
