Sziget Festival -the Island of Freedom- is the reigning "Best European Major Festival" award winner and aims to keep this title with its original program, and unique atmosphere. When Szitizens go through the legendary bridge they arrive to an Island with extraordinary visuals and decorations. We can easily describe the location as "a great place to get lost' as you can choose from more than 50 program venues with around 1000 programs at the week-long event. In addition, the amazing city of Budapest is a capital also worth to explore.
Sziget is proud to host a multicultural Szitizen community, also reflected in the program offered by the Island of Freedom. Solid European bands, who have already proven their talent in their home countries now have the opportunity to showcase their music in front of Sziget fans from more than 80 countries.
On the Island of Freedom there is a special venue, the BK Europe Stage, dedicated to some of the most promising European artists. This year bands arrive from more than 20 countries, showcasing their talent and bringing their local hero powers to Sziget.
