About the Sziget Festival

Festival Sziget, Island of Liberty, is a festival that takes place on a beautiful green island in the middle of Budapest. A seven-day non-stop event, where you'll find about 50 program hubs and a range of about 200 events a day, is considered one of the best and greatest multicultural meetings in the world. The bands' performances range from the largest in the international poprock scene to electronic and world music, even though you can find metal, folk, jazz, blues, alternative and even classical music while walking around the huge festival grounds.

Sziget is not just music, it also offers a variety of cultural programs such as theaters, circuses or exhibitions. There is also a beach where you can enjoy the summers and the Danube. It is also the only great festival where you will find authentic Romani music and a place for the gay community.

And we should not forget that the festival is located in the middle of Budapest, a tourist town with a lively cultural scene, beautiful historic buildings, Turkish baths and pubs that deliberately look like before demolition. The festival annually attracts more than 500,000 Sizzhiets during their week.
