Sziget Festival 2016

Sziget is the Island of Freedom that could also be regarded as an independent state. It's many festivals in one, a week long non-stop event from the 10th to 17th August in the heart of Budapest.

Sziget Festival is one of the biggest multicultural events of Europe, starting in 1993 and already celebrating its 24th edition. 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.

This year from 10th to 17th August there will be approx. 50 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. It also has a beach section where fans can truly enjoy the summer and the Danube. 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, historical thermal spas and SPArties and special 'ruin pubs'.
