Break away from the reality: Sziget - festival of music and celebration of life

Every year, the legendary Sziget Festival takes place in Budapest.

Sziget is the largest European festival of music, art and culture. Every year, hundreds of thousands of people from different parts of the world become participants in this grand event (in 2016 the festival attracted 496,000 music fans from 100 countries).

The festival is located on the island of Obuda since 1993. In the first year only Hungarian groups were invited, and 43,000 people witnessed this event. Over the years, the festival began to invite bands from different countries and attract more and more public. One of its advantages is diversity. Here you can hear music from different directions: from alternative rock to electronic music.
