Sziget Festival is one of the biggest multicultural events of Europe, starting in 1993 and already celebrating its 23rd edition. The festival attracts almost 400,000 fans from over 70 countries to a beautiful island in the heart of Budapest, providing a complete festival-holiday experience with non-stop party, great live concerts, a widely international community and all the touristic features the city has to offer.
Sziget is the Island of Freedom that could also be regarded as an independent state. It’s many festivals in one, a week long non-stop event with approx. 50 program venues and around 200 programs daily. Performing bands range from the biggest names of the international pop/rock scene to stars of world and electronic music, but you will also find metal, folk, jazz, blues, alternative and even classical tunes, while you are wondering around the huge festival area.
