We think the most important priority is the synergy between the villages and Ördögkatlan, the creation of the five-day-long celebration to prove to all parties involved: we are capable of carrying out grand projects of great significance, and showing human qualities. We know that compared to the Sziget festival, a Europe-wide famous enterprise attracting hundreds of thousands of people each year (with 85% of its visitors being foreign), a celebration like ours might seem insignificant, maybe even ridiculous. By all means, oldfashioned and outdated. We don't deny that. We don't deny that basket-works are outdated, "not normal" by nature, whereas we believe that this is worthy of men, yes, it's appropriate, it's just right on a human-size scale. It's one of the things Mari Törőcsik says when she does something out of love instead of cold calculation: "I must be insane!"
Well, this became the motto for Ördögkatlan this summer. "We must be insane." And that must be right.
