Sziget

Biography

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 many festivals in one, a week long non-stop event with approx. 60 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.

Sziget is not just about music, as it offers several other cultural programs, like theatre, circus, or exhibitions. This is the only big festival where you will find a Roma tent and even a gay-lesbian venue. And we shouldn't forget about the fact that the festival is in the middle of Budapest, a touristic city with a lively cultural scene, beautiful historic buildings, Turkish spas and special 'ruin pubs'.

Travel options to Sziget include all possible methods, so you can come by bus, train, airplane, car, or even boat. Accommodation is also very easy to choose. Many of the fans will stay at the festival area in tents or caravans, but if you are not the camper type, you will find a huge number of hotels and hostels nearby.
