The experience of the years spent in music life, the organisation of a whole series of festivals and events, and the current state of society, called our attention to an important circumstance: that surrounded by loud festivals, events and lifestyle advertisements, the absence of real social events is more and more noticeable. This was the basic thought lying behind the Babel Sound Camp whhich will be held 16-24 July in Fonyódliget.

 

Babel Sound is an event for people who prefer a more homely, intimate, environment-conscious way of entertainment in our accelerating world. We create a „festival” that embodies a vision, and that envisages a future in which a summer music event offers entertainment, relaxation and cultural programs, retaining a balance with the environment.
The camp extends over a large area (17 hectares) and the premises of individual events are situated relatively far from each other, creating louder islands in the „quieter” festival. With this arrangement we plan to offer an opportunity for guests who prefer a quieter entertainment or who would like to take part in it with their little children.

The structure of the program focuses on special social events and scenes (music workshops, folk dance events, discussions, playing music together, jam) rather than on presenting big international names. As a result of this, the festival has only two music stages in the traditional sense, but besides these numerous smaller installations and concept-premises await the audience.
