Hello Queenzoners!

I would like to invite you to a great summer Queen event, the Hungarian Queen Convention!

This year in july, to commemorate the 26th birthday of the Hungarian Queen Fan Club, and the 15th birthday of the traditional Hungarian Queen Camp, the HQFC organizers decided to give a proper celebration, a celebration that this country has not seen before!

The last three days of this years Hungarian Queen Camp, near the Lake Balaton will see the first ever Hungarian Queen Convention!

We have a great and very interesting line-up of performers! Those of you who have been to Montreux at the Freddie Mercury Memorial Day last year, or those of you who have been to the 2008. Queen Convention in Brean Sands already know about the most innovative Queen tribute band, called Queen Unplugged Project. The band plays Queen songs on acoustic instruments, but don't misjudge them, THEY ROCK!!! Infact they rock so hard that Greg Brooks isntantly became a fan of the band, after seeing them live.

Another famous fan of the QUP is Peter Freestone, who kindly accepted the invitation, so he will be there too, to share his personal memories of our dearest Freddie.

Other performers include Jan Vytásek, a very talendted young czech singer-songwriter,who already proved himself to be a great presenter of Queen's music to the international audience! This time he will perform his favourite Queen songs, with some surprise guests!

If you're eager to hear something you haven't heard before, don't miss the concert of the Bohemian Quartet! This amazing group of young musicians play Queen's music on string instruments!

The program is so rich and colourful, that I really don't have enough time and space to mention it all here! Art contest, karaoke, water games, sports, boat trip, concerts, rock-disco, raffle, surprises, and many more!

The Convention takes place at the beautiful small village of Balatonszemes, near the lakeside of Europe's biggest lake. The surrounding mountains give you a chance of peaceful relaxation, and the fantastic beach will certainly satisfy your needs of bathing, and enjoying the summer sun!

The lovely people, the picturesque area, the lakeside, the hungarian vines, great programmes, fantastic performers, and of course Queen's music are waiting for you. If you want it all don't hesitate!
