Venue: Sziget Festival is located on Óbuda Island, an island in the Danube river in Budapest, Hungary. A festival on an island seems almost too good to be true, yet Sziget Festival is as real as the Post Festival Depression you’ll experience immediately after leaving the island. The festival considers their venue the Island of Freedom leading the #LoveRevolution.
Reputation: Sziget Festival is a past winner of the Best Major European Festival award. The festival boasts a seven-week long multi-genre lineup. Despite its reputation as a prominent rock festival, Sziget also features reggae, hip-hop, indie, and electronic music. Sziget Festival becomes the premier party central in Hungary every time it comes around. Last year, Sziget saw a huge spike in attendance, bringing in 496,000 people from 95 countries.
Price: You can get a regular 7-Day pass to Sziget Festival for approximately $350. If you are not able to experience the entire 7 days, there are packages available for 1, 3, 5 days as well. The festival also offers upgraded camping, luxurious glamping, exclusive entry to private boat parties, and add-on services to suit the specific needs of all their fans.
Atmosphere: Simply put, Sziget Festival is the place to party. It’s also the place where your wildest dreams can come to life. We don’t mean that figuratively. Sziget Festival asks its fans to wish for something they want to see or do at the festival. Those that are chosen by the Sziget Angels will get to see their wishes come true. This year’s wishes include bungee jumping in a tutu, breakfast in bed (tent-style), a personal boat trip down the Danube River, and one bottle of Fanta.
