Halloween serves all the more reason to celebrate and brighten up the dark, greyish days of autumn by dressing up into costumes and attending special Halloween parties.
The last rays of sunshine gently touch us as both our sun-kissed skin and Indian summer are fading at last. Nature slowly turns from its blooming, colourful self into a pale, brownish and greyish one. The days are getting noticeably shorter, while temperature drops considerably, as well. Separately, all these features could serve as a sufficient reason for everyone to surrender themselves and give into the grip of melancholia, especially considering that one of the most characteristic symbols of autumn is All Hallow’s Eve, that is Halloween.
However, turning around this logical chain, Halloween serves all the more reason to celebrate and brighten up the dark, greyish days of autumn by dressing up into costumes and attending special Halloween parties. Luckily, Budapest never lacks of parties, especially when it comes to such peculiar occasions as this holiday. Clubs and places of entertainment which are fully booked with events all week anyway, prepare for special parties, as well. For instance, Instant and Fogasház offer two events: one, as a pre-Halloween for the fans of folk punk and the Irish spirit with The Scarlet on the 26th of October, and one for the EDM lovers with the electropop duo JETLAG, on the 31st October. Those who dig the latter, Anker’t or Ötkert might as very well be the perfect place to go. Barba Negra organizes the 12th Hiperkarma-Halloween, but if you’re into heavier rock, don’t miss out on TRIP’s mini metal-Halloween festival between 26 and 28 October. Speaking of heavier parties, the crew of Therapy Sessions will be taking over A38 ship on the 31st of October and along with the Bladerunnaz team they will provide the hardest basslines, in the form of hardcore and hardcore drumb and bass. Last but not least, it is also worth mentioning the spookiest event of them all: Psychadelic Halloween in Dürer Kert, organized by the Hungarian Goa society.
Whatever party you choose, don’t forget to make up and wear a costume to your wildest and most creative imagination, so that you can let go of the grip of the melancholic autumn.
