The multi-award winning, multi-genre, week-long island escape!
With over 1,000 acts and performances booked each year, Sziget is one of the largest music festivals in Europe, taking over the picturesque Óbuda Island in the middle of the River Danube.
Winning countless awards and dubbed by many as the 'European alternative to Burning Man', the line-up is a delightful surprise each year, touching on all musical genres from metal to pop.
No day is ever the same at Sziget either. It's an event that is seen as an amusement park for festival fans, bursting with various colourful and exciting distractions from reality.
For one week join 70,000 fans and lose yourself in the island of possibilities...
