You won’t find many programmes in the world with over 100 nations participating with their shared love of music, with a vibrant mix of cultures and more than 1,000 fantastic performances over a week, on over 60 different stages. But we do know where you can find one like that: Sziget. It’s worth visiting Hungary just to experience it.
Sziget Festival: for the programmes here, the sky is the limit
Did you know that the very first Sziget was held in 1993? At that time, only a very small and select audience could enjoy the shows. Since then, however, this series of events has become one of the largest music festivals in Europe, having won the Best Foreign Festival award at the UK Festival Awards in both 2018 and 2019. The award was certainly well deserved, since Sziget offers colourful, exciting and high-quality programmes for visitors (sometimes called “Szitizens”, in a Hungarian play on words), guaranteeing that they will return home with memories that will last a lifetime.
