The History of Sziget Festival Hungary
Sziget Festival is one of the biggest cultural events of Europe, attracting almost 400 000 people from over 40 countries each year to the heart of Budapest.
The venue is an island on river Danube, creating a special atmosphere with the unique mixture of party, city and nature.
Sziget is many festivals in one, a non-stop event with almost 60 program venues and around 250 programs daily, so whatever music you like, you will surely find it there.
Sziget has 5 big open-air stages, many smaller live stages and several DJ venues, including the giant Party Arena.
The festival is not just about music, it offers several other cultural programs, like theatre, circus, or exhibitions. And we shouldn’t forget about Budapest itself: a touristic city with a lively cultural scene, beautiful historic buildings, Turkish spas, special ’ruin pubs’, etc. If you are not the camper type, you will also find a huge number of hotels and hostels near the festival venue.
