Balaton Sound 2014

Award-winning fiesta on the shores of Lake Balaton

The Basics

10-13 July 2014
Zamárdi, Hungary

Part-festival, part-beach party, Balaton Sound is the award-winning jamboree that pulls together a huge line-up of electronic, rock and pop stars and has them wow at a beautiful shore-side resort next to Hungary’s Lake Balaton. 

Boasting several stages of entertainment, luxurious seaside lounges and a wide selection of restaurants and bars, it’s the festival that has it all - even a giant lake to cool down in once the soiree starts to fire up.

Frequently Asked Questions


Our Recommendations

What We Love

What We Love

  • The festival takes place on the southern shores of the massive Lake Balaton, which means plenty of opportunities for a dip or a surf or even a boogie on one of the event’s party pontoons. In the summer, the average temperature of the lake is 22 degrees, which makes it even better. 

  • The festival goes all out with its food stalls. Not just content with the usual pizza and burgers, you can fill yourself on everything from burritos to frog’s leg.

What To Know

What To Know

  • The festival uses a contactless payment system, so no cash will be accepted inside the festival grounds past the ticket gate. Instead festival-goers must use the free top-up cards that they are given on arrival to pay for food and drink. Credit can be loaded onto the card at several points around the festival and there will be staff to help with any issues you might encounter. 

  • If you’re arriving at Budapest Airport, you’ll need to board a train to Budapest Deli and change for a connecting train to Zamardi Felso station, which is right next to the festival site. The whole journey should take around three hours.
