Balcony TV
Posted by Katalin Török · Jun 9, 2014

’Music with a view’ has a new meaning since 2006. Two Irish friends decided then to start recording songs in their balcony. The initiative has become a world wide movement: more than 70 cities have joined – and Budapest is one of them.


The concept is simple: take a city, find a balcony with a view and ask local bands to play their songs. As easy as it sounds, Balcony TV provides insight to music of different countries, and at the same time it gives a hint of what the atmosphere of the city is like where the song is played.

Balcony TV Budapest was launched in February, and their first ever public shooting took place in Gozsdu Sky Terrace, during Budapest Essentials.

It is worth checking out Balcony TV’s global site – where you can get to know great bands from all around the globe and vote for them in the charts.
