An island party like no other
Sziget Festival is a massive music and cultural festival taking place in Budapest. Begun in the wake of the fall of the Soviet Union as a means to provide arts programming for students, the festival has grown into one of the biggest and most iconic in the world.
Taking over the 266 acre Obuda Island for an entire week each year in August, Sziget offers over 1,000 performances and has been labelled the Burning Man of Europe for its otherworldly atmosphere.
Annually presenting lineup consisting of the biggest names from all genres across 9 stages (and plethora of boat parties), as well as an amusement park, chill out areas, a beach and more, the festival truly has something for everyone.
- Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran is the first artist announced for Sziget 2019, and will headline 7 August 2019. The lineup for the rest of the festival is still to be announced. Last year's lineup included Arctic Monkeys, Kendrick Lamar, Gorillaz, Mumford & Sons and many more.
Óbuda Island is in the north of Budapest on the Danube. But it isn't just the island where Sziget takes place, with the entire city lighting up for a week of non-stop partying.
