Sziget Festival Exhibition services


Sziget Festival will be held 08 to 15 Aug 2018 in Budapest, Hungary.
Sziget Festival is one of the world's most iconic music festivals. For more than two decades it has been growing, morphing and keeping ahead of the crowd as it puts on a multi-genre, super-star cast year after year. Sziget’s winning festival recipe comes not only from its prime location on the island of Óbudai-sziget in the Danube in the heart of Budapest (one of the world’s great cities, smack in the middle of Europe, where east meets west), but also from its 24-hour non-stop mix of music, art, food, performance and regional culture. It has become one of Europe’s most popular summer festivals, recently having received the honor of “Europe’s Best Major Festival. Everything from EDM to hard rock is represented on Sziget's spectacular stages, from the biggest to the most intimate; there aren't many places you can catch Martin Garrix and Kings of Leon in the same weekend. Sziget's legendary reputation precedes it, with tickets selling fast even before any artists are announced. It's a more-than-a-festival experience, and definitely one to tick off the list of any festival fan. Sziget Festival is an event and I like events...

Why Sziget Festival 2017?

Sziget would be one of my top three choices for these three reasons: first, Budapest provides a lovely backdrop for this festival on an island (one of seven islands on the Danube River); second, it has an eclectic music lineup so there’s something for everyone (plus there are all kinds of other activities from bungee jumping to table tennis); third, it’s well-organized, with everyone going in and out across the bridge that connects with the city. It’s not a festival for those who get intimidated by crowds and I’d recommend earplugs if you’re camping as it’s a 24/7 kind of environment.

Sziget Party Island:

Sziget is a music festival. It attracts big name musical talent, but it’s the sheer variety of musical experiences that sets Sziget apart.

The diversity of performance, music and art is sure to have something for everyone. Regional performers are top-notch, and there are more than 1,000 performances in a week. Expect gypsy music, wandering horn troupes, spontaneous entertainers and the Roma tent showcasing energetic local talent. If your tastes are eclectic, Sziget is your perfect home.

There’s a huge amount of interactive art spread throughout the island. Sziget appears to be taking note from Burning Man by adding more interactive art each year.

 It’s a 24-hour experience with all services, most music, food and drinks functioning all week long. So, prepare to get little sleep. Even if you’re camping on the island, take a daytime break and explore Budapest. One of the best excursions is to the hot springs of Gellert or Szechenyi Baths.

Tips:

  • Camp on the island for the full Sziget experience. Just remember to use the free lockers to protect your valuables.

  • Take a break and visit Budapest. Gellert and Szechenyi hot springs are a welcome respite from the non-stop party island.

  • Explore the island, there’s so much to see.

  • Visit the Luminarium and the Sziget Eye. Both are worth it!
