#27: Jonas Togay (Kozpont, NVC promoter)
Dec 14 15
As the public face of Kozpont, the chilled and popular Budapest hang-out, Jonas Togay is well-known to the city’s Madách tér warriors. A distillation of Hungarian, Finnish, and Turkish ancestry, Jonas also promotes for the NVC crew, known for the expanding Electronic Beats festival in addition to a variety of other bookings. Recently we sat down at the podcastle to discuss his melting pot background and associated visit to Turkey, a bit of sport, a typical day in the life of Jonas, some refugee crisis (what conversation can’t touch on that these days?) and, most importantly, our shared appreciation of turn of the century so-bad-yet-so-good pop music. It was a pleasure to talk and hope you enjoy!
