Sziget Festival is one of the biggest multicultural events of Europe. The festival attracts almost 400 000 fans from over 70 countries to a beautiful island in the heart of Budapest, Hungary. It's many festivals in one, a week long non-stop event with 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. 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. This is the only big festival where you will find authentic Roma music and even a gay-lesbian venue. 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!
